Psarou Beach

One of the most famous beaches of the island offering golden sandy beach and crystal-clear waters. Every year, thousands of visitors arrive to this gorgeous and highly organised beach by car or yacht. One of the main attractions here is Nammos restaurant, a hotspot for celebrities and jet-setters. Spoil yourselves on the most comfortable sunbeds and around 4pm, let’s the party started!

Paradise Beach

The most famous of all of Mykonos’ beaches, Paradise is what essentially brought tourism to the island in the 1970s. It’s no longer the beach of hippies of the 70s, it now attracts young straight crowds, who dance, drink and lie on the sand all day and night, to the sound of music playing at the several bars and restaurants. There are parasols and sunbeds everywhere, and the summer parties usually start in the middle of the afternoon and last until sunrise!

Paraga Beach

A relatively small beach, Paraga (often also spelled "Paranga") is one of Mykonos' most popular for several reasons - it’s within walking distance of the Paradise party beach, it has trendy beach clubs and the water is calm and crystal clear, good for swimming but watch the rocks along the shore.

Although it doesn’t offer much space for privacy, nude sunbathing is relatively common (on the right side). There are sunbeds and parasols for rent on the left and middle sections of the beach, close to the bars (which play loud music throughout the day). There are two bars behind the beach (upscale SantAnna and lively Kalua) and another over the rocks on the right side (stylish Scorpios).

Kalo Livadi Beach

Kalo Livadi’s thin white sand makes it one of the most desirable beaches in Mykonos. As you walk down one of the longest beaches of the island, you will find a section with loud music making you want to dance on table and lounge chairs and a tranquil section to relax. With fine sands and shallow crystal-clear waters, Kalo Livadi is the perfect spot for families.

Panormos Beach

Previously a well-kept secret, Panormos Beach is one Mykonos beaches that retain a “wild and natural” side. Half of it is serviced by Principote de Mykonos restaurant and Beach Club filled with umbrellas and sunbeds, while the other half remain unspoiled and natural.

Principote de Mykonos restaurant and beach bar, is consider has one of the classiest and most upscale spots for the summer. Venues are new, chic and luxurious. Cuisine is Greek and service is of the highest standard.

Fokos Beach

Fokos is a great beach for those who wish to get away from the crowds in Mykonos and enjoy the sea in seclusion and tranquility. The beach is family friendly and hosts a small Greek tavern which makes a great lunch option for authentic Greek cuisine and fresh local seafood. For the adventurous, the beach can also be approached by horseback rider.

Agios Sostis Beach

Agios Sostis has been the most popular natural beach of Mykonos since the 50’s. Totally untouched, it offers a sandy coastline, clear waters and privacy. The small and famous Kiki’s tavern right up the hill is the most authentic traditional Greek tavern of the island, as it has been operating for more than 30 years without electricity or a phone, offering freshly prepared delicious meals.
