Ornos Beach

This is the most family-friendly beach on the island and a lot of families with young children choose Ornos because of its calm shallow waters that little ones will love splashing around in.

Super Paradise Beach 

Mykonos has a reputation as the gay capital of Europe and Super Paradise Beach is the most popular LGBTQ beach on the island.

Lia Beach

14km from Mykonos Town, Lia Beach is another great place to escape to if you want to get away from the party atmosphere of Paradise Beach.

Paraga Beach

Paraga Beach is separated in the middle by a rocky headland which means you basically have the choice of two different beaches. The southern end is quieter while the northern end has sun beds, umbrellas and plenty of beach bars to keep you entertained. Because it’s so gorgeous, the crowds do flood here so if you’re visiting in high season get here early to secure your spot on the sand.

Agios Ioannis Beach

Don’t take a vacaction in Mykonos without ticking off Agios Ioannis Beach.

Located on the south west corner of the island, it also has splendid views of Delos island which is just off coast.
