Mykonos may be famous for its vibrant nightlife and wild party-scene but there’s one more thing that renders the island quite unique: its breathtakingly beautiful beaches. Mykonos is home to countless fantastic beaches and there is definitely the perfect beach for everyone, no matter if it’s partying or relaxing that you’re after. So, here’s our selection of the 5 best beaches in Mykonos.
Paradise Beach is the go-to destination for anyone who’s in Mykonos to party. The beach attracts primarily young crowds and the partying goes strong all day long. Yet it’s after sunset that the music gets louder and the party crazier. There is direct bus connection between Mykonos Town and Paradise Beach.
Paradise Beach is only one of a cluster of cosmopolitan beaches in the southern part of the island. You can check them all out during a fantastic boat tour!
Kalo Livadi Beach
If a combination of a relaxing beach with a tiny bit of partying is what you’re looking for, then Kalo Livadi Beach is the best option for you. There are a couple of beach bars that play music all day long but the largest part of this long sandy beach is absolutely unspoiled. You can get to Kalo Livadi by bus from Mykonos Town.
Agios Stefanos Beach
Agios Stefanos is the ideal beach if you’re staying in Mykonos Town and you want a pristine beach that is within easy walking distance. A long sandy beach with views of Mykonos Old Town, Agios Stefanos is right next to the New Port and easily accessible from Mykonos Town on foot or by bus.
Agios Sostis Beach
Agios Sostis is one of the best beaches in Mykonos. It is a long sandy beach with crystal clear blue waters and absolutely no tourist facilities. Right above the beach, you can have lunch at legendary Kiki’s Tavern, probably the most authentic restaurant in Mykonos. You can only get to Agios Sostis Beach by private means of transport.
Now, if you’re a fan of totally secluded coves, Fokos is the perfect beach for you. This is probably the remotest beach in Mykonos, with the clearest emerald waters and zero facilities. There are no means of public transport that can get you to Fokos Beach.
