Best Beaches in Mykonos, Greece

Greece, Mykonos Guide (B): Best Beaches in Mykonos, Greece

When visiting Greece, we had a great chance to see some of its beautiful islands. While Santorini is popular because of the unique white-washed houses and volcanic landscapes, Mykonos is famous for its golden sand beaches, clear water and parties. Although we stayed in Mykonos only for a weekend, we still had a chance to admire the old town as well as some of the best beaches of the island. This post will be useful if you don’t have too much time to spend there and want to use public transport to see some of the most beautiful beaches in Mykonos.

I will write how we reached Mykonos in a separate post describing the impressions of the Mykonos town itself. After roaming around the narrow streets and spending a day in the town, we decided to explore the other parts of the island and relax on the golden beaches. Mykonos is an extremely popular destination - especially for young people, it’s full of parties, beach clubs and crowds over the summer. In the winter months, it is mostly deserted. Of course, the beaches in Mykonos are lovely - with white/golden sand and crystal clear waters but the landscape around is rather dry, boring and empty. Visiting Mykonos after we’d just been to Albania (which turned out to be a hidden paradise - check out my posts about Albania), set my expectations really high and for this reason I think, I did not enjoy Mykonos beaches as much as I could have otherwise. Personally, I am not a big fan of just lying on one of the tightly arranged sunbeds all day and prefer a wild, hidden beach where you can feel like it’s your own - but I do understand that there are as many preferences as there are people, therefore, if you like relaxing and just doing nothing - you’ll love Mykonos. There are also some options for those who prefer more quiet places too, of course. Below I am describing how to reach the best beaches in Mykonos in the easiest and fastest way possible by bus. ...... (follow the instructions below for accessing the rest of this article).
