Mykonos has some really beautiful beaches many of which are fairly close to the town and can be reached by local bus which operates throughout the day.
Psarou and Platis Gialos
These 2 beaches are separated by a large headland, both offer great facilities with sunbeds, restaurants, and Psarou having the amazing Nammos beach club.
This beach is the next one beyond Platis Gialos and offers another fantastic beach with bathing in crystal clear waters.
Paraga has several beach clubs/bars that are laid back during the early part of the day and build up to full party mode by late afternoon.
Paradise and Super Paradise
These bays are 2 of the most famous beaches on the island of Mykonos.
Both have first-class facilities including sun loungers, beach restaurants/bars and wonderful swimming from perfect beaches.
Paradise has a lively beach club which goes into full swing by late afternoon with a mainly young clientele.
Super Paradise also has a great beach club which plays chilled out sounds for most of the day then hots up to a full club scene until the sun goes down.
Elia, Kalafatis, Aghia Anna, Kalo Livadi, and Agrari
These bays are located to the southeast of Mykonos town, all offer great swimming in crystal clear waters with near-perfect beaches.
All feature the normal facilities including sunbeds, restaurants/bars plus good watersports from both Kalafatis and Elia.
For those that prefer the small cove style of the bay then Agrari may be the ideal choice for a lazy day on the beach.
