Mykonos Island, the golden jewel of the Aegean Islands is known world wide. However, Mykonos is primarily known for its nightlife, parties, beautiful people, boutiques and chic scene, but it has something that many are not aware of; Great Beaches. So when you’re done exploring the pulsating town of Mykonos and its nigtlife, it’s time to relax at one of the enticing sandy beaches located through out the island.
Mykonos beaches are some of the best of all the Greek Islands and cover the entire spectrum from sleepy coves with small fish taverns to those that look more like a cover of a fashion magazine featuring a nightclub environment with house music & drinks flowing under the Aegean Sun. Paradise Beach will satisfy the Party Animal in you, the gay crowd now seems flock to Elia Beach, and Ftelia Beach’s natural beauty may very well soothe your soul since it is the most undeveloped of them all.
Each Mykonos beach seems to specialize in a different niche: family-friendly or party; straight, gay, or mixed; nude or clothed; with many other traits to satisfy any type of beach seeker. But one thing that all the beaches of Mykonos have in common is topless sunbathing. For in Greece like most other European Countries, even the family friendly beaches allow one to be topless if they choose, but Mykonos Beaches does have the highest amount of topless and nude beaches.
