Psarou beach
About
Nestled in a tiny bay, this small beach is known to have some of the clearest waters and best sand in Mykonos, and for being a spot for celebrity sightings! The beach is sheltered from the summer winds and is perfect for swimming, snorkeling, or simply relaxing—there are sun beds and umbrellas that you can rent for the day and a free public free area where you can lay down your beach towel. It gets pretty busy (and slightly more expensive) during summer, so get there early to get a good spot. – Tripadvisor

    Party beach with loud music
    This beach was close to our hotel, Petasos in Platis Yialos. There are many sunbeds to rent for a fee. Like any other beach in Greece, sunbeds go from twenty-five to more dollars depending on which row you take. There is a bar on this beach with loud music and many party people. We could hear the loud music from our hotel. Before going to this beach, I recommend you ask questions. Maybe this noisy beach is not for you. Go down the street, Platis Yialos Beach.

    Like walking into a postcard!
    We opted to check out this beach when we saw the throngs of people at Agios Ioannis. We found the walking trail easily and when we rounded a curve and got our first look at this idyllic cove, we knew we made the right decision. We found a place in the shade to cool off and ordered refreshing cocktails. We hung out here for a couple of hours and just enjoyed the atmosphere, weather, and beach vibe. There is a helicopter landing pad on the right side of the beach and it was fun to see one come in and drop off some people.

    Magical beach
    My absolute favorite beach in Mykonos. We passed through Nammos village which is magical. Then the beach itself so so beautiful. Perfect sand and water and luxurious views. We chose the beach club next to Nammos so the sun beds were only 25 euro in the first row. Amazing music as well. A more high end chill vibe as opposed to the techno crazy party vibe you would get in Paraga or Paradise beach.

    Very hip beach
    The beach is very nice with nice marine life to see and also a party if you want to hang out with the hip crowd. There are several eating and lounging restaurants that rent the lounge chairs and feed you. Nammos is the most popular, hip and expensive. You can also go to some of the other ones next door that are nice. We rented the Seabob which was amazing but get ready to spend money. Totally worth it.

    Great Beach!
    We were looking to relax and get away from the hustle and bustle for a few hours in Mykonos. We took the bus to the beach. It was a beautiful bay lined with mega yachts and a beach club. It was not crowded so we rented two sun beds for $30euro. The staff was attentive and very nice. We swam and just relaxed! We had Greek Salad for lunch and it was delicious! I don’t know how they made it, but it was so tasty! The water was perfect, no wind, perfect day.

This is a wonderful beach with the best sand and the clearest water in the region. The water is turquoise color and very clear. There are plenty of sunbeds for rental but there is also a public section, completely free of charge, that you can use.

If you are staying in Platis Gialos (which is the best area in Mykonos to stay) keep in mind that there is a walking path along the beach right after Nissaki hotel that brings you in 5 minutes to Psarou Beach, no need o follow the long and winding Google recommended street.

I would highly recommend a visit to this beach.

I just wanted to make everyone aware of a scam that dk oyster carry out which is to offer a free sun bed for a drink each so he asks if you want a drink you say yes then we got two non alcoholic cocktails and a bottle of water then were horrified to find out our bill was €205 and even had the cheek to give themselves a €25 tip!!! You could say it’s our own fault for not asking to see a menu or asking how much but never did we think it would be €85 a cocktail. Please see dk oyster on trip advisor as unfortunately it’s very common, they need to be stopped!

We were taken here on the recommendation of the taxi driver who said it was a well managed and quieter beach than Elia beach with safe swimming and he wasn't wrong. He was right, a great sandy beach, safe and the views were great also not too far from town and cruise port (partly because the drivers on Mykonos seem to drive at 60mph all the time). The road is very narrow with very few places to park so we were dropped off and picked up about 5 minutes walk up the road. The path down to the beach leads into a wonderful area of luxurious beach beds hosted by stunning people who check if there is space for you with their manager. DO NOT STOP here unless you want to pay 60 EUROS for 2 beds and an umbrella. Turn left and along the beach there are 2 beds with umbrellas for 12 Euros a day, same beach, same view and change to buy drinks and food. The cafe overlooking these beds is lovely for a coffee or meal and you can use the showers and WCs if you hire a bed. Staff will collect the fee and bring you food or drinks if you don't want to go to the cafe.
Our cruise ship had docked in Mykonos town and this was a super way to start the day with the morning swimming before it got too hot then back to the ship to change and catch shuttle bus or water taxi into town for a amazing walk around the beautiful shops and cafes with fantastic photo opportunities around every corner.

Top Tips
1. If possible get a taxi from the cruise port. It's confusing where to get one in town and there aren't many of them.
2. Get the taxi firm's telephone number or driver's name/ card to call for a pick up as there's no taxi rank at the beaches. You could ask in the cafe if they could phone for one otherwise. Allow 30 minutes for taxi to get to you.
3. Get to beach early before everyone else arrives from the ship and then you'll be returning before making it easier to get a taxi.
4.I wouldn't advise hiring a car just to go to the beach but if you're into extreme sports you'll like driving around Mykonos.

Mykonos is glamourous, beautiful, expensive, hedonistic and possibly not for the very conservative person.

Paying for beach chairs is something foreign to us & also being so close together is not so great either ,but the beach is clean & buzzing with activity & great music & chairs are very comfortable with umbrellas if needed . Great service as well, but dont expect to get off cheap.

We visited early AM before the rush. Amazing beach spoilt by "Security Gorillas" everywhere. Not my idea of getting away from it all. But its a Posers paradise. Avoid
