Today we will continue our journey by discovering the most beautiful beaches of the southern coast of Mykonos. From the most peaceful and wild to the most lively and equipped, you can find the one that suits you best.
Agrari is a sandy and pebble beach, 7 km from Chora. It can be reached by taking the southern road Chora - Ano Mera taking the marked junction. You have to go along a paved road that in several points is rough and with a last stretch with a steep slope. The Agrari Beach links are quite limited and a good plan would be to take a taxi or maybe rent a car when you are here. There are some areas equipped with umbrellas and sunbeds, with the possibility of doing all kinds of water sports, and other quieter and more intimate areas where nudism is tolerated. Between Agrari and Elia there are a couple of even quieter beaches.
ELIA is located on the southern coast, about 9 km from the Chora. This beach of fine golden sand with some pebble areas is the longest on the island. Therefore, one remains happily even when it is very crowded. In the more secluded areas, where there are no services, some practice naturism. Its position shelters it, in large part, from the meltemi even when in other areas of the island this wind of the Aegean blows with particular intensity. There are umbrellas and deckchairs available to the swimmers, and the presence of bars and restaurants, both on the beach and in the surroundings, gives the opportunity to have lunch, take a drink or take shelter during the hottest hours. You can practice water sports. Elia can be reached by bus from the Chora and with the boats that sail from Platys Gialos. Nearby, Watermania is a fun water park.
KALO LIVADI is located in an almost deserted bay, but the sandy beach is organized with lots of umbrellas and deckchairs, a bar and a small tavern. In the small valley behind it (kalo livadi means, in Greek, beautiful valley) and on the low hills on its sides there are many possibilities to find accommodation. It is very popular among the Greeks and ideal for families: the water depth is low for long stretches. If you continue up the coastal road, when this descends to sea level, several small coves open up. Park the vehicle and get off: you can swim in wonderful waters in complete solitude. It is connected by bus to both Chora and Ano Mera.
Returning to the west, just before the curve to the left that leads to the beach of Kalafatis where there is a junction with two streets. The first, with the directions of the Taverna Spilia, leads to the beach of Agia Anna ( there is actually another beach with the same name between Platys Gialos and Paraga). The beach is sandy, full of umbrellas, there is a beach bar. If, however, you take the other dirt road, you get to head Tsarsanas where is the fishing village Divounia, with the small beach of the same name.
KALAFATIS is one of the largest, organized and well known beaches of Mykonos. The sea has exceptional colours: some of the day the blue is really bright. Despite being quiet and suitable for families and those seeking relaxation and tranquility, the beach is the most famous spot of Mykonos surfing: similar to California, there are many surfers who meet on the beach and in the sea with their tables surf. A windsurf school rents all kinds of equipment. Anyone can try this sport: beginners can practice in the innermost area of the bay, more sheltered from the winds. Both restaurants on the beach are excellent. There are also some convenience stores. It is served by bus service, even if the trips are infrequent.
LIA is a sandy beach with small pebbles. It is quite sheltered from the wind, it is equipped with umbrellas and elegant wooden beds with comfortable mattresses and pillows. Once it was quiet and isolated, but today is one of the most popular and popular beaches, especially for the Greeks who holiday on the island. To find a more beautiful and completely unknown beach, just take the road and turning right, continue east. At the second crossroads on the right (the one before the road curves to the left) turn and continue for a while, until you see a cross on the right. Take it and as soon as you can, park it. The beach is a little further, less than 100 meters. The name of this beach of sand and gravel, enclosed in a small bay without vegetation, is called Tsangari. It is enchanting for its atmosphere of solitude and, of course, for the sea.
The last beach that overlooks the southern coast is Frangias: the most tranquil, intimate and deserted of Mykonos, a place to be alone in contact with the sea. At the beach you will find some adventurers like yourself or someone who has gone to this small bay with his own boat. The beach, consisting of thick and compact amber color sand , is very wide. The sea is calm (there is never too much wind) of light green and turquoise color. There is nothing, either on the beach or around, and there are only a few private houses nearby. To reach it you have to travel the same road to Tsangari. Instead of taking a right turn the last time, you have to go as far as you can, being careful to drive slowly because of the bumpy road. Park and continue on foot until you reach the beach.
