19 Most Beautiful Beaches in Mykonos


19 most beautiful beaches in mykonos

Mykonos is a paradise where not only have fun but also relax on the beach.

There are many beautiful beaches, with aquamarine water where to swim and enjoy the day while snorkelling and let all your worries go.


There are beach clubs with famous beach parties, beach resorts and some beaches are perfect for watersports.


There are beaches for party people but also beaches for families where kids can have fun playing with sand while parents can relax, sleep or, like me, spend a whole day reading a novel.

Valentina's Travel Guide, 19 Beautiful Beaches in Mykonos

Here is a list of the best beaches in Mykonos, so you will find what you are looking for, the perfect beach for your needs.


The beaches on the island's north side are usually very windy, the perfect spot for windsurfing and kitesurf, while the beaches on the south side of Mykonos are more secluded, so there might be a nice breeze more than wind.


My advice is not to spend all your holiday at the same beach but also rent a car or move by bus around the island and explore everything this famous island offers.


Keep in mind that Mykonos is a trendy island, so between July and August, it can get so crowded that you are not going to find a single spot on the beach or a sunbed where to lay down after lunchtime.


There are many beach clubs with prices that go from 150 euros for a sunbed on the first row to 30 euros in the last row far from the shore.

Beach Clubs Prices


In some beach clubs, they will tell you that the sunbeds are free if you eat and drink at their bar/restaurants, so keep in mind that in these beach clubs everything is expensive, to give you some examples:

  • Bottle of water 8 euros

  • Milkshake 18 euros

  • Any coffees and teas 15 euros

  • Soft drinks 500 ml 15 euros

  • Energy drinks 18 euros

  • Fresh Orange Juice 18 euros

  • Spritz 25 euros

  • Bottle of alcohol from 190 euros

  • Cocktails from 25 euros

  • A glass of Prosecco from 48 euros.

These are only a few prices of one of the beach clubs I passed by. I did not buy anything, I only went in to use their lavatory, and I took a picture of the menu to show to my friends.


Of course, every beach club has different prices, more famous the club and more expensive will be their drinks and food.

Of course, it all depends on the location, I found one that charged me 30 euros for two sunbeds, one umbrella and I could leave my rental car in their car park. I was only in the third row of sunbeds, so not bad at all (Be Cool Cavo Psarou).


Of course, prices increase every year, and it also depends on the month you are visiting Mykonos, so check out their websites for prices etc.


Valentina's Travel Guide, 19 Beautiful Beaches in Mykonos

Most of the beach clubs took so much space on the beach that there is not much left for whoever doesn't want to pay for a sunbed, but you can still find some area, as I did.


If you find a spot on the free beach where to enjoy your day and a security guard comes to tell you that you are not allowed to stay on the free beach near the beach club, do not trust them.


They are not allowed to kick you away.

Just tell them you will call the police to ask if it is true, and you are going to see how they will let you stay.


Unfortunately, these things happen. Just know your rights.



Mykonos Water Taxi:

To reach the most famous beaches located on the south of the island, you can get water taxis that run along 7 of the most famous beaches, from the early morning till the evening.


The water taxis start from Platis Gialos Beach (you can get there by bus or taxi) and will take you to the other beaches by paying a fee of 10 euros (one way), or you can purchase the all-day pass for 20 euros.


Mykonos Water Taxi Beaches:

Ornos, Platis Gialos, Paraga, Paradise, Super Paradise, Agrari, and Elia.



So, here is my list of the best beaches in Mykonos. Of course, I haven't been to all of them, but I did all the possible research for you about those I did not visit to make sure to give you guys, like always, all the information you need to make your next travel, a wonderful one.


Remember, if you are travelling on a budget, there are plenty of cheaper and more wonderful Greek islands to visit.


They all have amazing free beaches where you can get a sunbed for a whole day just by buying yourself a drink at the beach bar (and the drink is going to cost you only a couple of euros, not a whole day's salary).

So if you are travelling on a budget, my advice is to spend only a couple of days in Mykonos, visit the Chora and maybe a couple of beaches, but then, leave and go to other islands, with the same level of beautiful beaches but much cheaper.


If instead, you have a lot of money to invest in a luxury vacation, this is your island, where you are going to find a lot of things to do to make the best of your holiday.

Beaches on the North Side of Mykonos:


Valentina's Travel Guide, 19 Beautiful Beaches in Mykonos

1. Old Port Beach:


This is the beach in the main town Chora. I saw some people enjoy their day on this beach, but I honestly do not recommend it to you.


There are plenty of boats anchored in front of it, and it is pretty crowded all around from tourists exploring the town.


It is a lovely spot to take nice pictures, but there are many more beautiful and natural beaches around the island for sunbathing.

2. Agios Stefanos Beach:


Agios Stefanos is a beach located near the new port of Mykonos, where you will arrive by ferry (unless you decide to fly direct to Mykonos).


It is well protected from winds, there are some beach clubs, and a part is free. Around this each there are some tavernas and bars where to enjoy something local.

This is also a good spot for a drink or dinner at sunset because located on the west side of the island.

You can get there by bus from the main town.

3. Agios Sostis beach:


Agios Sostis is a very small, natural and quiet beach located n the north area of the island.

There are no beach clubs here, so no sunbeds and loud music.


This is the best place where to go if you want to see the wild side of Mykonos before they will all be gone to leave space to another expensive beach club.

The only way to get there is by car, so check out prices and availability on DiscoverCars as I did.

4. Fokos Beach:


Fokos beach could quickly become your favourite beach in Mykonos if you hate a crowded beach full of sunbeds with music all day.

You are not going to find any sunbeds here or beach clubs.

This is a tranquil and wild beach to enjoy a nice swim and take a nap while laying on your towel.


It is located 13 km from the main town, and the way to get there is not easy, but as soon as you arrive and see this natural beach, you will love it.

In the case of wind, there could be pretty high waves, so please be careful if you decide to go for a swim.


There is only one taverna nearby where to get some drinks and local food.

5. Panormos Beach:


One of the most secluded beaches on the island, Panormos Beach is the perfect spot if you look at a beach far from the main town.


The sand is very soft, the water is crystal clear, and if you are looking for a luxury beach club, this is one of the places to go.
