Best Beaches in Mykonos
Welcome to our 2018 guide about the best beaches in Mykonos. The following are by our opinion the top 10 Mykonos beaches.
1. Platis Gialos
Platis Gialos Beach Mykonos is one of the most popular beaches , not only in Mykonos or in Greece but in the whole of the Mediterranean sea!
There are very regular bus services to and from Mykonos town that take about 15 minutes.
This large sandy beach is very well organized and provides a variety of facilities, especially for families with children and there are plenty of beach & sea sports such as water-skiing.
2. Psarou Beach
Psarou Beach Mykonos is 5 km from the town of Mykonos. It is one of the most popular and famous beaches on the island, with pure and clean white sand and crystal clean waters (the waters are always calm, as the beach is enclosed by mountains around), ideal for sunbathing and relaxing and also for watersports. Psarou Beach is famous for attracting celebrities from all over the world. Because of the publicity of Nammos, sometimes they call the beach as Nammos beach.
3. Ornos Beach
Ornos is in a beautiful location with an abundance of restaurants and cafes but this is not a beach for anyone looking for a quiet and relaxing day of sunbathing, despite the pictures in the brochures.
Ornos is a bustling beach, full of young people, families and tourists. Very good organized with sunbeds, umbrellas, sofas, beanbag, restaurants and beach bars. Sun loungers are jammed side by side and cover almost every inch of the sand but holiday visitors will need to get there early to bag a place as they soon get snapped up.
4. Paraga Beach
Paranga Beach Mykonos is a combination of two sandy beaches separating by a headland and forming a large beach. The southern beach is the calmer, while the northern one is fully organized and lined by many taverns playing music, younger crowd & a more alternative crowd/ nude bathing and tiny gay section.
5. Kalo Livadi Beach
Kalo Livadi beach Mykonos is another beautiful, quite big and very popular beach at the south part of the island.
It’s definitely one of my favourite beaches of the island as it feels so big.
It’s located between Elia and Kalafatis beach and it’s pretty big in length and width.
6. Super Paradise Beach
It’s the most famous beach of the island.
All the crazy beach parties is the main reason people visit Super Paradise, so it isn't ideal for families or seniors.
However, it’s a pretty good sandy beach with nice waters but not the best of the island.
Bear in mind though that the right side of the beach is mostly nude and gay friendly.
In the afternoon the music gets really loud and it will come from both the left side (Super Paradise Beach Bar Club) and the right side (Coco Club).
7. Paradise Beach
One of the best beaches in Mykonos. Soft sands, azure seas and a rowdy atmosphere have made Paradise one of the most popular places on the island. Paradise has become more developed over the past few years and now features a nearby strip of resort hotels, restaurants and beloved carousing spots like the Tropicana Beach Bar and Cavo Paradiso Club.
8. Agrari Beach
Agrari Beach Mykonos is another beautiful beach, a bit seclusive for those who do not like crowds.
The crystal clear blue water will pay you off for the difficult route, the long sandy beach is split up into right and left hand side which provides umbrellas, sunbeds, beach tavern and water sports.
9. Elia Beach
Elia Beach Mykonos is by far one of the most beautiful beaches in Mykonos.
The crystal clear blue water is exactly the same as you see it in all those postcards!
There are 2 ends on the beach and both are quite busy (especially between June-September).
9. Fokos Beach
Most of the tourists agree thet Fokos beach Mykonos is probably the most beautiful beach of Mykonos.
If you are looking to relax and be seclusive this is the beach for you (plus the amazing sand!).
