One of the most important tourist asset of Mykonos, which makes it stands out among all the islands of the Aegean (or all Mediterranean islands), are Mykonos wonderful beaches.
The people who really knows about Mykonos will choose Agios Sostis. Do not forget to take with you water and coffee because there is nothing to buy near, searching by foot. If the day you are going to visit Agios Sostis is really hot, please think it twice to visit this beach because, you leave the car or any other mean of transport far away from the beach, and you have to walk in order to reach it. If you finally get there you have to eat at Kiki's (find it here). This is a tavern at the beach that do not use any electricity, but uses only grill and the wind :-) .
It is quite far from the town of Mykonos but is very beautiful and quiet beach. It is a little rocky and the water is always cold as it is the most northern beaches. The previous 2 years was running also a diving school on the beach because it has very nice seabed off the Lias.
Kalo Livadi beach is ideal for families with children since it is the most shallow beach and you will have no fear for children's safety, and the beach as wonderful as clean and not so cold because it is placed at the southern part of Mykonos. Large loungers can be found at Solimar at the left side of the beach and ideally spaced, in order to avoid to stick to each other. A little further there are water-sports facility for anyone who wants to try the adventurous side of vacation. It is the vast beach so if you want your peace, you will certainly find a place to relax.
One of the most popular bays with fine golden sand, just 5 km. north of the Mykonos town. We love Panormos because he insists on a "hippie chic" character, while protected by the enviromental Ramsar Convention. On the edge gathers nudists!
The bars offers cushions and chairs so you will surely find somewhere nice to sit. All service stuff are so positive that make your mood. They have the most beautiful cafe of the island but you can sit and eat in the afternoon enjoyining the special traditional cuisine (see all food specialties of mykonos here).
Agrari is a wild beach but very beautiful. I believe that the reason why the locals named it such way (wild = agrio). It has pebbles and is very deep and steep beach. So you are not going to see many families around. Do not be afraid though. If you like beaches with deep water is very nice. Have in mind not to visit Agrari when the day is very windy, because as all the north beaches of Mykonos, it has many waves and you are not going to enjoy swimming.
There is a small bar in the beach that you can find water, something else to drink or to eat.
Tip: You are going to find Deck chairs, umbrellas, toilets, showers, changing rooms and free Wi-Fi.
Super Paradise is mainly known for its all day parties, starting from early morning and finish late at night or earlier the next morning. It is 6 km. away from Mykonos Town (chora). It is the best beach for partying in the sand until the sun sets. The music from the loudspeakers of Beach bar always plays "loud". You can find crowds parting, crazy beach clubbing and many celebrities from all over the world. It offers beach bars, sunbeds and umbrellas, restaurant, water sports and a large parking. There is no bus connectionbut the boats from Platis Yialos can take you here.
Sandy beach, rackets, bustle, but also something very nice and comfortable beds to relax. 2 km. Southwest of Mykonos town is the picturesque village Ornos. Α small sheltered harbor where the fishing boats moor.
Psarou beach is 5 km. away from the town of Mykonou.Is one of the most popular and most famous beaches, the pure and clean white sand and crystal clear waters (it is always calm, since the beach is enclosed by mountains around), ideal for sunbathing and relaxation, but also for water sports. Do you want to leave and ... degree from the island? In Psarrou exists a diving school, where you can start diving and get your certification by experienced divers. The beach offers plenty of room for boats parking because of the dock. Jet skiing, fishing and windsurfing are also some of the activities preferred by visitors to Psarou.
