Here’s a look at the top beaches you can visit while on the island of Mykonos:
Megali Ammos Beach
For an uninhibited morning walk along the beach, look no further than Megali Ammos Beach, which means “large sand”. This beach has too much wind for umbrellas, and is pretty close to a the main road, but it is a short walk from downtown Mykonos and offers visitors a peaceful place to lounge on the sand or ponder the waves crashing into the shore.
Agios Lazaros Beach
A cozy beach nestled among many other beaches, Agios Lazaros Beach is close to Mykonos downtown and has many hotels and summer homes on its shore. Visitors to the island will live spending time at this calm seaside. Unlike some of the beaches, this is a bit off the beaten track and may not have some of the crowds the other places do.
A beach for the naturist and those fond of taking the path less traveled, Fokos Beach offers nothing in the way of tourist amenities (think umbrellas, chairs) but a single tavern offering local food and drink. To get here, find yourself on the northern coast of the island and arrange private transit. You will know that you are close if you come upon Marathi, an artificial lake.
This beach likes to play hard to get. Kapari Beach is one of few unorganized beaches of Mykonos but offers those visitors committed to swimming in its calm, clear waters and unforgettable time. Ask around for directions and bring your own beach-going supplies, you will need to come equipped for a day at this secluded beach.
As the name suggests, this is the kind of beach people dream about from their cubicles in the dead of winter. Super Paradise beach has rows and rows of beach chairs and umbrellas, and awaits the vacationer with drink in hand. This beach is especially popular with the LGBTQ community, but provides white sand beach and turquoise waters to all who wish to spend the day (or days) in paradise.
Come for the pebbles and the cove, stay for the spectacular sunsets which are some of the best on the island. Houlakia Beach is not so much for the swimmer (it is a protected area) or the sunbather, but for the nature enthusiast who seeks every opportunity to appreciate the natural beauty and splendor of this earth.
Agios Stefanos Beach
A small beach that gets crowded in the summer, Agios Stefanos Beach offers many things to visitors. Protected from the winds because of its cove shape, travelers of all ages flock to this beach because of the plethora of activities. From water sports to taverns and hotels, this beach has it all. The beach is also popular because of its proximity to the main town of Mykonos.
There is a beach on Mykonos for every traveler. Each of them sharing the clear blue water, white sand, and rocky landscape signature to Mykonos and Greek islands at large. You can’t go wrong with any of these beaches!
