I know that people have mixed feelings about the beaches of Mykonos, but I plan to go this year. I've been in the past and wanted to share my three favorites:
1. Elia Beach
- Elia is the longest sandy beach in Mykonos, offering a less crowded experience. It's ideal for those who want to relax and enjoy crystal-clear waters.
- Tip: Try the water sports facilities there — I don't enjoy it but my family members report that this is fun. They've rented jet skis.
2. Paradise Beach
- As the name suggests, Paradise Beach is lovely. It's known for the party scene, but during the day it isn't bad. They just play DJ music while you're at the beach, and there's a lively bar.
- Note: Leave before the evening parties start if that's not your scene. I love the energy during the day but I have to be in the mood for the music.
3. Psarou Beach
- Psarou might allure you with its upscale vibe and excellent beachside services. It's all about luxury yachts, boutique shops, and high-end dining.
- Recommendation: Don't miss the opportunity to snorkel in these beautiful waters. It's very serene here in general.
