Car Hire Mykonos Airport
It is wise to rent a car at Mykonos Airport,given that there is no public transport, and the airport is located in Chora, 3km from the island's eponymous capital. The airport is also called Hephaistos (or Ifestos) Airport, after the mythical son of the gods Zeus and Hera. Regular flights operate to and from Athens, Heraklion, Ikaria, Santorini, and Volos, but during the busy summer season there are frequent flights to a wide range of destinations across Europe.
Mykonos is the glamour queen of the Cyclades, flaunting its glitzy style to the high-season hordes of holidaymakers that throng Mykonos town, a traditional labyrinth lined with high-priced shops and bars. During summer, there is a relentless party atmosphere, but in the off season, you may prefer the calmer atmosphere of laid-back locals and silent beaches. Mykonos is also a great hub for anyone hoping to explore the archaeological wonders of the neighbouring island of Delos.
