Mykonos is known for its many beautiful beaches, among the most sought after in Greece. On Mykonos, a beach is not simply a beach but a destination on its own.
The island’s famous beaches are located on the southern coast. Ornos is a lovely, organised beach with fine sand. Located in front of a fishing village on an inlet, the beach offers quiet waters, protected from the wind. Psarou is one of the island’s most popular beaches noted for its beauty and proximity to Mykonos town.
Agios Ioannis, Kapari Beaches are small, quiet beaches and among the most exquisite, with a romantic sunset and view of Delos. A must on the beach clubber’s agenda are Paranga, about 6 km from the town, Paradise and Super Paradise Beaches. The bars are many, the music is loud and the DJ’s are among the best. An alternative to the action of these beaches are Agios Sostis and Panormos on the calmer, northern coast. Difficult to access, down a path on the rocks, the beaches offer pure tranquility.
Elia, on the south coast, has the island’s longest sandy beach. It is a quiet, organised and favoured by lovers of naturism. Kalo Livadi, a beautiful, calm beach perfect for families.
Kalafatis, in the southeast, is a windy beach with a wind surfing centre and competitons. The beach offers all types of water sports and scuba diving.
