Family oriented beaches in Mykonos

Ornos

Family oriented, shallow and hospitable, the bustling Omos, the beach of the homonymous settlement, is one of the beaches preferred by parents and younger people in recent years. A scenic bay with shallow blue waters, leeward to the north, with fine sand. It is easily accessible by bus, car and motorbike. You could possibly encounter a problem concerning the parking, unless you are a regular at one of the many restaurants and taverns in the area. It has a lifeguard and is almost full of umbrellas and sun loungers. The only spot for you to laydown your towel is to the south side of the bay.

Agios Yiannis

It’s the beach that has a privileged view over Delos, the cape of Aleomandra and the canal between Mykonos and Delos. Its main characteristic is the chapel of Agios Yiannis to the west of the bay, to which it owes its name. A sandy beach with good taverns for food, with many beach houses and luxurious villas, as well as large hotel units in the wider region. The beach is recommended for those who want peace and relaxation when swimming. Water sports do not exist, but one can find umbrellas with sun loungers. The beach can be reached by going towards Ornos and taking the road west.

Platis Gialos

It could claim the title of the blue lake of Mykonos. The picturesque and cosmopolitan Platis Yialos has always been a leeward bay on the southern side of the island. It is also an organized beach with fine sand and unique teal waters. It is full of restaurants and hotels and is one of the most favorite beaches of both younger and older people. This beach is a staple for those who want a scenic ride onboard to the famous beaches of Mykonos, as it is the starting point of all the traditional caiques that take you to them with frequent rides from morning till night. Access by bus would be appropriate. There are only private parkings. It is provided with lifeguards and water sports.

Agios Stephanos

Closest to Chora, Agios Stefanos has always been a safe haven for those who wish to swim in turquoise waters without, however, the abuzz atmosphere of other beaches. It’s a sandy beach with quite shallow water, only… .km away from Chora and is easily accessible by bus but also by car and motorbike. It is an organised beach with umbrellas and sun loungers, but it has also space for you to lay your own towel. It is provided with lifeguards and a beachfront restaurants’ private parking.

Kalafatis

Another long beach with teal deep waters located to the southeast of the island. It’s an organized beach with a lifeguard, water sports and taverns by the sea. It is provided with umbrellas and sun loungers, but also plenty of trees that reduce the wind and invite you to lie underneath their shade.

Ideal for those who want to swim quietly, away from prying eye…
