Ornos Beach
About
The closest public beach to Mykonos Town, Ornos is a relaxing and convenient getaway with a sheltered bay and shallow waters. Most of the beach is lined with sunbeds for rental—make reservations early to snag a spot, especially during summer. Though if you head away from the resorts, there are small public areas where you can lay out a beach mat. There is no lack of restaurants and bars, and most resorts here offer sea views. It's a popular stop along boat cruises around Mykonos, a great way to explore all the best beaches of the area. – Tripadvisor

    Too Crowded and Small
    The beach is small and not much to do there. Very few fish to see with your snorkels. The beach was very crowded and of course you have to rent at tourist prices the lounge chairs. Lots of boats park right in front so dont think you will be swimming too far either.

    Beautiful views
    The views here were absolutely beautiful and the main reason we decided to go to the beach while visiting Mykonos. I would not say the sand and water were anything exceptional, and it was on the crowded side. It was also very windy when we were here, but we spent a little time in the water and enjoyed the view!

    Quiet beach with great beach lounge chair rentals. Restaurants nearby. Recommend.
    Really enjoyed our visit to this beach. We rented the most comfortable beach lounge chairs with umbrella 15 euros per lounger. Nice service as well. Ordered cappuccino. Be ready for people walking around selling jewelry, linens, and other items such as massage.

Don’t bother, it’s hugely expensive and crammed. There are much nicer beaches available that don’t fleece tourists for every single euro.

I was on my own, I was told on the beach that it was 90€ for 2 sunbeds and they wouldn’t give a discount for 1 person. I was then told I couldn’t lay my towel down on free sand unless it was at the far end of the beach!!
The sea of course is beautiful to swim in.
Added to this my hotel told me it would be 30€ to go in a taxi to Paradise beach area, Beware!!! A young taxi driver known by the hotel in a private taxi then tried to charge me 45€ instead for the 10 minute journey. I found out apparently public taxis are on meters and are much cheaper. The bus is under 2 €. Frankly my experience in Ornos was one of being ripped off!! Tgd rest of Mykonos I loved!!

Awfully crowded beach with daylight robbery prices - 25 euros per sunbed per day. Literally people 1 feet from each other. There’s a tiny stretch of free sand with lots of vendors with their phoney designer bags etc. never to return. The only good thing is you can get the water taxi and go to a different beach

We were shocked! People were packed onto the beach like sardines. One over priced deck chair next to each other from boardwalk to water’s edge. Small patch of sand beach for the public or the right side of the beach facing the sea. Better off at the hotel pool.
