Beach near Mykonos Town

Hi All,

Just after your recommendation for a beach or something alternative to do.

Last visit was a nightmare on a cruise, had to wait nearly 3 hrs for a tender and then missed buses to the Beaches so just walked around Mykonos Town.

Going in Sept again just wanted to know if there are any pretty, quiet beaches not too far from the Town.

Thanks in advance.

1. Re: Beach near Mykonos Town

Closest beach to Mykonos Town is Megali Ammos, which is about a 10-minute walk from the Fabrika bus station.

See the town map at this link: red-travel-mykonos.com/_img/about_mykonos/my…

Fabrika is the bus terminal indicated at the far left side of the map. If you walk up the road marked "Fabrikas" on the map, and follow the road down the hill (to the left), you'll reach the beach. Compared to other Mykonos beaches, Megali Ammos is only "okay" -- it's not a wonderful beach. But it is just a short walk from Town and saves you having to take a return bus ride. Also, it has superb sunset views (if you happen to be there in the evening), and Joanna's Niko's taverna on the beach is a great spot to enjoy reasonably-priced good food.

If your ship happens to dock at or tender to the new port, at Tourlos, you will be within about 10 minutes' walking distance of Agios Stefanos beach, which is much nicer than Megali Ammos and has several tavernas where you can get food or drinks.

Here is a link to online photos which I took in May of Megali Ammos beach: travel.webshots.com/album/583029616ExFYxQ…

And here is a link to pics of Agios Stefanos, also shot in May: outdoors.webshots.com/album/583079574Khwxrv…

The photos should give you a good idea of how the two beaches compare.

You can take a bus from the Fabrika station to Paradise beach. The trip takes less than 15 minutes.

There is no bus service to Super Paradise, so you have to either drive there or take one of the shuttle boats from Platis Gialos beach. That means going to the Fabrika station to catch the bus to Platis Gialos, then walking to the pier at the Gialos beach where you can buy tickets for the boats. The boat ride to Super Paradise takes around 20 minutes or so.
