Beaches of Mykonos

Mykonos beaches are famous all over the world for their golden sand and crystal waters.


It's the largest beach on the island, with space for everyone. The turquoise water is always inviting, and nudity is common. It's known as Mykonos' "gay beach," but you'll see that it attracts all kinds of people. Much of it is taken over by umbrellas and sunbeds in the summer, but there’s a small section for those who prefer to lie in the sand. This sunbed-free section is usually the right side, close to the rocks which separate this beach from Agrari (see below), and is where you often see the rainbow flag and groups of men in their birthday suits.

Beautiful and with crystal-clear waters, Platys Gialos (sometimes spelled Platis Yialos) is the best beach in Mykonos. It’s a convenient starting point to discover other beaches, on foot or on an hourly water taxi, and home to some of the best hotels on the island, located right by the sand and facing the sea. It has restaurants and bars serving meals and drinks throughout the day. This is not a party beach, but it has a lively atmosphere. Parasols and loungers cover most of the sand, and the shallow water is perfect for refreshing swims.

Beach for: Couples, Families, Swimming


There’s a reason why this is currently Mykonos’ trendiest beach -- it’s great for swimming and offers a beautiful scenery. It can get crowded, but it's undoubtedly worth a look. By the luxurious yachts, you can tell that it’s the island’s most exclusive beach and the favorite of the rich and famous. You may even bump into a local or international celebrity. Naturally, everything (sunbed rentals and restaurants) is expensive, but worth the experience if you can afford it. It’s often the choice for a honeymoon or to impress a special someone.

Beach for: Couples, Swimming


It may get crowded and loud in the afternoon, but the crystal-clear water and the views are just perfect. Although it's a party beach, the calm waters also attract families and couples on honeymoon. Despite what other guides will tell you, this is not the gay beach on the island, but it remains a popular choice among gay men, due to the frequent gay-friendly parties. It’s almost entirely covered in sunbeds and umbrellas for rent.

Beach for: Couples, Swimming, Parties, Gay-Friendly


It's Mykonos’ famous party beach, filled with bars where the 20-somethings want to be at, day and night. It has plenty of places to eat, drink, and shop for beach essentials, as well as frequent bus connections to Mykonos Town. If you’re looking to dance and drink in addition to sunbathe and swim, this is where you’ll want to be. The party continues after the sun goes down and almost until sunrise, at the club above the beach. Once a popular gay destination, it’s now largely straight, as the gay crowds currently prefer Elia.
