Couple travel experience

I felt pretty safe in Mykonos. I walked around during the day, locals were nice. It was pretty crowded with tourists. I didn’t really do much besides walking around and shopping. Mykonos is pretty expensive compared to the other islands so be prepared for that. There were buses, boats and cabs to get around the island.

Solo travel experience

Mykonos is a party island and promotes itself in this way. I had a good time on this island, but I'm not the party type. Two or three days were enough to explore the island.

Solo travel experience

This is terribly touristic and expensive, and without friends, it's not so fun anymore. The party scene was difficult to understand for a young, lonely woman... unfortunately, I was sexually harassed in a club.

Solo travel experience

I loved Mykonos. I stayed at the Palladium Boutique Hotel and it was easily accessible, located near 3 beaches and Little Venice. Kastos is my favorite restaurant, but it was a bit expensive. I would not recommend the Buddha Bar, it was overrated and the food was just okay.
