Megali Ammos is the closest beach to Town, if you arrive at the Old Port by tender. If your ship docks at the New Port at Tourlos, then Agios Stefanos beach is only a 15 minute walk away. There are much nicer beaches elsewhere but you would have to drive or take a bus to reach them.

There is a small beach, Aghia Anna, right in town near the old port. Not many people use it as it is small and has a very busy path/road behind it.

Megali Ammos is not very good. You can't swim because there are flat slippery rocks as you enter the sea.

The town faces north and is exposed to the wind if it is windy, so you wouldn't want a beach near there anyway.

I would recommend either Aghios Stefanos or one of the beaches to the south which aren't that far away but you need a bus or taxi to get there.

Mykonos has about two dozen beaches that are substantially nicer than those mentioned above. If beach time is a priority for your brief port stop, it would be a huge shame to go to a crappy or mediocre beach...especially the little Agia Anna strip of sand in front of the Leto Hotel.

Take a taxi or bus to Platts Gialos instead. Great selection of beachside tavernas there, and you could easily walk to Paraga or other beaches if you want a change of scenery or different beach vibe.
