Seeking for the ultimate feeling of serenity, for a beach forgotten by civilisation and time, for pristine waters and Cycladic nature at its absolute best? Mykonos, against to what many people may believe, can offer secluded coves and untouched beaches in abundance, the only thing you need to do is know where to look and be prepared for hiking down some pretty serious dirt roads and rocky paths. Of course, you can always choose the elegant way and get there by sea, boarding on a luxurious yacht or a stylish speed boat and taking your own “beach service” along (check out our “Sail Me Away” Services).
If looking to explore the “other Mykonos”, then this is surely the place to start from. Located on the northern side of the island, this pure and unspoiled by civilisation small sandy cove bears no resemblance to its neighbouring cosmopolitan Panormos beach.
One of the island’s most “secret” beaches, mostly due to the fact that until recently it wasn’t accessible by land, as the path to get here passed through private property, leaving the beach “reserved” for those who could reach it by boat. Now you can visit it using your car up to a certain point and then on foot.
Once a well-kept secret, nowadays the beautiful and pure Kapari beach is quite well-known but manages to remain relatively secluded and very low-profile. It is located on the west side of the island, very close to the glamorous Aghios Ioannis beach, but it shares none of its features, crowd-wise speaking.
If you have seen pictures of people riding on beautiful horses on thick sand next to crystal-clear dark blue waters in Mykonos, this is exactly where those pictures were taken. Fokos is a small cove with feral beauty on the northern part of the island, where your mobile probably will be out of signal and horseback riding excursions often end their route.
Less than 1km away from Fokos, stands another hidden gem of the Island of the Winds. Mersini, or Mirsini, is a small sandy cove with amazing waters, ideal for all-day diving and exploring the seabed with your mask, and an imposing rocky background offering a touch of wildness to the whole setting.
If looking for a “just you, me and the sea” type of experience, well you just found it. Merchia is located on one of the most remote areas on the northeastern part of the island. This tiny beach with the fierce beauty has fine sand, deep clear waters and a few tamarisks that generously offer their shade to the very few people you will come to see here.
Just 1km away from the famous Kalo Livadi beach lies a pristine small cove with big rocks, ideal for diving in the emerald waters. The shiny pebbles give a natural glow to the shore, which seems to glitter under the eternal Greek sun. You can relax on your towel all day long,
On the northern part of the island, just a 6km distance from Mykonos Town, you will find yourself on a narrow cove, divided into two smaller bays, which is very different than all the other beaches in Mykonos. This bay is more of a “to see and admire” than a “to actuall
A small, well-hidden slice of heaven on earth for those seeking for absolute serenity and some distance from the buzzing party scene of the island. Mini Lia is located next to the famous and cosmopolitan Lia beach, but is not easily accessible. To get here you have to either go “off-road” after the r
The ultimate meeting point for windsurfing and kitesurfing lovers, as Korfos beach, located just 3km from Mykonos Town, is the windiest spot on the island. The strong and stable winds blowing here, in combination with the shallow waters, foster big and constant waves, which constitute
This is considered the main beach of Mykonos Town, as it is located just a 10-minute walk away and the access is very easy. It is sunbed & umbrella-free, as usually it is “whipped” by the strong northern winds. Its main characteristic is a huge flat rock lying in the sea just a few steps from the shore,
On the south of the island, Agrari beach is a two-in-one kind of bay, as half of the beach is organised with umbrellas and sunbeds, a nice beach bar and a traditional tavern serving dishes based mostly on bio produce, and the other half is totally free. However, the whole beach has a cool and relaxed
This is surely the ideal place for experienced, as well as wannabe, surfers, kite surfers and windsurfers. In the older days and for many decades this has been the meeting point of the hardcore, suntanned, well-shaped surfing fanatics, who sought to tame the perfect waves and the strong winds.
The best -and the only- way to visit these stunning, totally isolated and secluded, gold-sanded coves with the emerald and turquoise waters and the absolute freedom vibe is by boat. Rhenia is a small islet just next to Mykonos and its beaches are exotic, unspoiled and jaw-dropping.
