The Mykonos Water Taxi service runs along the island’s south coast, stopping to pick up and drop off passengers at 7 popular Mykonos beaches along the way from late morning to early evening. It’s a really fun way to get around; the boats are recommissioned fishing boats, and the company that runs them has been in service since 1968.

The main departure beach for the water taxi is Platis Gialos, easily accessible by bus or taxi. Platis Gialos is the only departure point with a cement dock; at the other beaches, the water taxi uses a floating dock or it just pulls up onto the sand and you have to wade through the water to board. The walk from Platis Gialos Beach to Paradise Beach is great – you can spend a super fun day eating, drinking, swimming, and partying your way from one to the other, using the water taxi to fill in the gaps. The Mykonos Water Taxi fleet is also available to rent to private parties for sunset cruises, fishing tours, and cruises to nearby islands.

But not always. Here passengers are boarding from the beach at Paradise Beach.

At other beaches, like Super Paradise Beach, the water taxi will always pull right up on the sand, and passengers wade through the water to board.

There’s also a great walking path along the coast from Platis Gialos beach to Paraga and then Paradise beach. There are many beach clubs and restaurants along the way. You can boat one way and walk the other.
