he best beaches on Mykonos are along the south coast of the island where they are

protected from the sometimes brisk winds that blow from the north. The beaches along the

north can look great in pictures but will often be quite windy – especially in July and August.

That said, they are much quieter and if you catch them on a peaceful day you’ll have a

beautiful beach nearly all to yourself.

Agios Ioannis – 5 km south of Mykonos Town. A quiet (but narrow) beach. Two tavernas and

direct buses in high season to Mykonos Town. One of the most beautiful beaches on

Mykonos but might be a little too secluded for some.

Ornos – 3 km south of the Chora. It’s an idyllic beach with lovely surroundings and many

restaurants. Ornos is the most family-friendly beach on Mykonos.

Psarrou – 5 km southeast of Mykonos Town. Many restaurants and beautiful sand. The

most trendy beach on Mykonos and dominated by the all-day party restaurant Nammos.

Platys Gialos – 5 km southeast of Mykonos Town. A wide beautiful beach with many

restaurants. There’s a mini-market and direct buses to Mykonos Town. This is where you

catch the water-taxi to Super Paradise and other beaches. It’s easy to walk from here to

Psarrou, Agia Anna, Paraga, and Paradise beaches. This is my favorite beach on Mykonos


Agia Anna – A quiet beach with one very good restaurant. An easy walk from both Platys

Gialos and Paraga.

Paraga – 6 km southeast of Mykonos Town. Paraga is busy but beautiful. Several places to

eat and drink. Direct bus from Mykonos Town to Paraga.

Paradise – 6 km south of Mykonos Town. A young lively party-beach with many bars spilling

out onto the sand. After the sun goes down the party just gets louder. Buses go directly from

Mykonos Town to Paradise Beach. Paradise Beach was once the most popular gay beach but

is now largely straight.

Super Paradise – 7 km southeast of Mykonos Town. A small beach with plenty of activity and

2 or 3 beach bars. No direct buses but there are small boats from Platys Gialos and Paradise

Beach to Super Paradise Beach. Probably the most gay-friendly beach on Mykonos. There

are no hotels on Super Paradise Beach.

Agrari – 10 km southeast of Mykonos Town. Very quiet and secluded with good sand. There

is no bus from Mykonos Town to Agrari so it’s bus to Elia and then walk 15 minutes. There’s

1 restaurant at Agrari.

Elia – 11 km southeast of Mykonos Town. The longest beach on Mykonos. Lots of parking

here if you have a rental car.

Kalo Livadi – is one of the longest beaches in Mykonos and quite popular for the facilities

and the parties. It is found between Kalafatis and Elia beach, located 10 km from Mykonos

Town and 2 km from Ano Mera. The vast beauty of the exotic waters and the idyllic setting

mark the landscape of this beach.

It is well-organized with many umbrellas and sundecks available for your comfort under the

hot sun, the ideal destination for people who wish to spend some days away from the noisy

crowd. Everyone can find space to lay their towel in the sand. Many families tend to visit

Kalo Livadi due to the shallow and clean waters and the quiet atmosphere. There are various

types of accommodation around the beach as well as great taverns.

Kalafatis – is known for its water sports. This is very much an active beach. In the left corner

of the beach of Kalafatis one can find a hut with hire facilities from a snorkel to diving. There

is also a windsurf centre, where you can rent a board by hour, and a watersports centre for

jet ski.

Lia Beach – 14 km east of Mykonos Town. Beautiful beach that’s quiet and has great

swimming. Also a good snorkeling beach. No public transit. The small La Luna taverna is here

and has wonderful Greek and Italian food.

Fokos – 12 km northeast of Mykonos Town. A quiet and secluded beach. There are no

tourist facilities here but there is an amazing taverna just off the beach. The taverna is worth

a trip in itself. No public buses come to Fokos – you’ll need to get here by private


Agios Sostis – is among the quietest beaches of the island due to its location, a bit far from

the popular southern beaches of Mykonos. This is an unspoiled area without any kind of

amenities, a characteristic that creates to visitors a feeling of total freedom. The beach

stretches for about 250 meters and visitors go down a small path to reach Agios Sostis.

There is no bus connection available so you can only come here by car or motorbike where

you can park on the road and then walk down the hill. On your way to the beach, you will

see a hidden tavern to enjoy a lovely meal after a hot day. Another path will lead you to the

beach of Panormos, a lovely fishing village.
