Mykonos is famous for the parties and the expensive lifestyle but if you swim in those beaches you will forget about everything else…Below are the best beaches of Mykonos.
Agios Sostis beach
The most adventurous people on the island choose the beach of Agios Sostis. Do not forget to take with you water and coffee because there is nothing to buy. If it is very hot, think it again to go there because you have to leave the car up and go down to the beach on foot. If you get there, definitely eat at Kiki’s. Kiki’s is a tavern that works without electricity. Everything is cooked on the coals.
Lia is a beach in Mykonos which is quite far from the other beaches but it is very beautiful and quiet. This is the reason why this is the favorite beach of families and people who love quiet. It is a little rocky and the water is most of the times cold because Lia is one of the most northern beaches of the island. There is also a diving school there to teach you how to explore the beautiful seabed off the coast of Lia.
Kalo Livadi beach
Kalo Livadi beach is ideal for families with children as it is the shallowest beach and the sand is wonderful. There are large sun beds in the beach restaurant “Solimar” on the left of the beach. A little further there are water sports for anyone who wants to try them. It is an endless beach so if you want quiet you will definitely find a place to relax.
That beach has so many sun beds and large cushions that you will definitely find somewhere to sit. Guys working at the beach bar there are so friendly that they will make your mood.
