Plan Your Mykonos Holiday: Best of Mykonos

PLAN YOUR TRIP
Mykonos
Mykonos is the Greek Island for pulsing nightlife and upscale beach clubs. Its name conjures up images of bright white windmills, turquoise skies, and tanned bodies lining golden sandy beaches. As the most popular Greek Island in the Aegean Sea, Mykonos has high energy that attracts a diverse and upscale crowd who thrive on its dance-till-dawn nightlife. Some quiet moments can be found in the more secluded north beaches, but the south beaches are all party. During the day, jet ski, windsurf, horseback ride, parasail, or just save up your energy for the evening ahead, like most of your fellow travellers. Looking for more to see and do?

A Mykonos beach tour

I’ve called Greece home for over a decade and never tire of finding new sandy spots to explore. Mykonos has some of the best beaches on the planet. From quiet family-friendly grottoes to gay party spots to clothing optional coves (if that's your jam), Mykonos has it all.

  • Elia Beach
    2,480
    Elia is the longest sandy beach on Mykonos. I love its authentic feel, with the white-washed Cycladic houses on the hill to its left. You can rent a luxury lounge chair to relax on the sand, or take to the waves with windsurfing or water skiing. Bonus: Being at the end of the water taxi route makes the trip to and from the beach an adventure, too.
  • Agios Sostis Beach
    564
    I like the surprisingly secluded Agios Sostis for its wonderfully relaxed vibe. There are no facilities, so bring your own towel and expect to lie on the sand. Note that this is a popular nudist beach, too. Afterward, there’s a small church nearby to explore as well as Kiki’s Taverna, where you can get an unpretentious lunch.
  • Kalo Livadi Beach
    651
    If you’re holiday-making with young children, Kalo Livadi is your place, thanks to the soft white sand and shallow water. Despite all the tavernas, restaurants, and hotels in its vicinity, it’s surprisingly quiet here. There are sunbeds and umbrellas to rent, but at cheaper prices than busier beaches. It’s also on the bus route from Mykonos Town, meaning it’s easily reachable—another plus.
  • Super Paradise Beach Club
    211
    Party people, this one’s for you. Super Paradise Beach Club is an all-day party on the beach with a hefty fee that gives you access to sunbeds and umbrellas during the day. When the sun sets, the scene moves into the club area where there are thumping DJ sets by the pool. It’s a popular spot for the LGBTQ community. You can either arrive by boat, bus, or car; be sure to reserve in advance.
  • Platis Gialos Beach
    2,544
    I can’t get enough of this beach’s quintessential Cycladic backdrop—all white houses scattered along a hillside. The placid waters make it perfect for young families, and though the beach gets busy, it’s got plenty of room to spread out. Waiters will bring drinks to your lounger. Or you can hit the restaurants and tavernas just steps away.
  • Fokos Beach
    208
    Fokos is on the northern side of the island, away from the busy southern coast beaches. It has zero facilities, which keeps the crowds away, even during high season. Nudists (optional!) like to visit Fokos due to its seclusion (there’s just one taverna). Be prepared to drive, since no public transportation comes this way. But a heads up: The waters can get choppy, especially through August when the meltemi wind blows.
  • Psarou beach
    312
    Psarou is celebrity central, and no wonder—it’s got clear water that’s perfect for snorkelling and a sheltered bay that keeps the wind away. Relax on rentable sunbeds or find a spot to throw your towel. It’s possible to get here by local bus, but arrive early in the summer-–it gets crowded.
