  1. The "red" beach has red earth.
  2. The "white" beach has white rocks around and black stones on the shore
  3. The "black" beaches of Kamari and Perissa have black stones as well as their name.

The water in all of them is turquoise and crystal clear, but they are NOT paradisiacal beaches as we imagine them.

MYKONOS does have beaches that seem like paradise! Soft white sands with turquoise waters that looks like a pool of calm waters and warm.
