Mykonos has developed a road network with good road signs and paved roads extensively. However, those that lead to crowded beaches (Paradise, Super Paradise) are close to causing traffic problems in the summer. For getting around the island there are buses starting from Mykonos town every 30 minutes.

The first station is in the port with destination to Ano Mera, the northwestern villages and beaches of Elia and Kalafatis, while the second is located in Fabrica with departures to airport and the seaside villages St. Ioanis, Ornos, Platis Yialos and Kalapodi (Bus tel.: 22890 23360).

Also from Ornos there are boats departing to neighboring beaches, while visitors can enjoy a cruise around Mykonos and Delos (tel.: 22890 24970). The taxi stop is at Square Manto Mavrogenous near the port. Within the Town of Mykonos you can find many shops with a variety of clothes, shoes, accessories and artwork while in the narrow streets there are couture houses and expensive jewelers.

The schedule is flexible with most shops remaining open until midnight during the tourist season. The areas of art and culture are the Cine Manto, with cinema, outdoor theater, concerts and performances, the Municipal Art Gallery, the Art Gallery, which displays works by Greek artists, and the Municipal Library.
