4.4
#1 of 61 in Outdoors in Mykonos
One of Mykonos' more tranquil spots, sits in a crescent-shaped bay just a short drive from the island's main city. The wider waterfront area offers a range of restaurants, bars, and shops, while the beach itself features several snack bars and small cafes. You can swim or snorkel here all day, or use the beach as your base to take long boat tours up and down the coastline. The beach features a watersports club, where you can rent banana boats and snorkeling equipment, or arrange for waterskiing and wakeboarding lessons. To explore other popular beaches along the island's southern coastline, use the taxi-boat service departing from a nearby jetty.
