Top 10 beaches in Mykonos

row 1
Mykonos is one of the most popular Greek islands, as well as a sought-after summer destination for people around the world. It may be well-known for its cosmopolitan style and its amazing nightlife but one of the main attractions of the island are its outstanding, sandy beaches. 
Generally speaking, the beaches on the southern side of the island are considered to be more beautiful and thus, attract more people mostly because they are protected from the wind. Nevertheless, wonderful beaches also embellish the northern side of the island. If you choose the latter, you are likely to benefit from less crowded beaches as the northern side is usually quieter. 
Let’ take a look at the best beaches in Mykonos so as to help you choose from a large variety of places and head to the most suitable one for you.

Elia beach

Elia beach is a wonderful, long beach that is less frequented by tourists because it is located further away from the town of Mykonos.

Although it is on the busy island of Mykonos, this is a secluded beach where you can enjoy the beauty and serenity of the island. This is not a place for party lovers or adventurers who want to take up a water sport activity as there is only a beautiful local restaurant and various stalls where you can buy a drink from.

Agios Ioannis beach

Agios Ioannis beach constitutes an excellent choice for families with young children thanks to its shallow and crystal-clear water. It is a rather secluded beach that is known for its peace and quiet. You can sunbathe on the sandy beach and enjoy an outstanding view of the island of Delos.

Kapari beach

Kapari beach is ideal for anyone who wishes to have a calming and relaxing swim in the crystalline water of the Aegean Sea.  There are absolutely no facilities here and thus, it would be a good idea to bring both water and snacks with you. Throughout the year it is a very quiet area but in July and August it can get pretty crowded. It is located at the bottom of a cliff and it has an outstanding view of the beautiful island of Delos. 

These are only a few beaches that you can visit so as to make the most of your stay on the island. Mykonos can cater for all tastes, so feel free to choose the beach that best suits your personal taste and needs!
