The only means of public transport available on the island is a bus which routes cover almost the entire territory of Mykonos. However in evening buses are not convenient for trips as the intervals between routes are considerable and one will need to wait rather long.
Between the islands tourists can migrate by scooters or small Turkish boats named kaiki. These can be rented almost on every beach, the cost of transportation service is rather high.
The island lacks taxis as well. In evening one can wait for a called by phone car for hours and catching a free car in the street is totally impossible. Tourists are recommended to think over the touring and entertainment plan in advance and in the evenings tourists should better set to the entertaining centers and restaurants which are set close to the hotel they stopped in.
The most favorable season for beach recreation is considered to be the period from the middle of spring till the middle of autumn. Tourists looking for numerous tours and excursions should avoid visiting Mykonos in summer as the extreme heat will sufficiently edit the plans for cultural education.
Purchases should better be paid in national currency. The currency can be exchanged either in banks and post offices or in private currency exchange offices. The most profitable rates for currency exchange are offered in banks meanwhile post offices and private exchange services charge considerable transaction fees.
