This is a wonderful beach with the best sand and the clearest water in the region. The sand is very fine, not like the coarse sand at Platis Gialos or even worse at the Paradise Beach. The water is turquoise color and very clear. You don't need anything else on a hot, torrid day of summer like we had.
People usually confuse Psarou Beach with Nammos Beach Club and I understand their frustration over the super expensive sun beds and drinks that Nammos offer. But there are other restaurants at the other end of the beach, more reasonably priced and also a public section, completely free of charge, that you can use.
Also, if you stay at one of the hotels in Platis Gialos, 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.

Another cute bay on the southern coast spoiled by hundreds of sunbeds set so close you cannot move around. Free part is almost non existent, drinks are skyrocking and everything is oriented to Euros.
Otherwise the sea and the bay are beautiful.

In compare to Platis Gialos - Psarou is small, prices of sunbeds much more higher. I went once and paid for coctail same as in Gialos but coctail was not even tasty. Not worth staying unless you are very rich .
Also view narrow and mostly on yachts.

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

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.

Platis Gialos was our family fav until we went to Psarou which you can walk to from Platis. It’s also reached by getting the same bus (1 stop before Platis Gialos). Ask a local or bus driver and they will direct you down a rock path by Mykonos Blu. The walk back up is ok. Platis Gialos has flat rock platforms close to the shore but Psarou is a sandy beach. Both are in a beautiful setting but one can see why Psarou attracts the money set. It is a beautiful place to spend a few hours. Be careful about which cabana you sit in. The cheapest we found was was 30 euro for 2 and we were told they extend up to 150 euro for 2 at the furthest end of the beach in the 5 star resort. Service is first class though and judging by the super yachts moored in the bay, you might find yourself sitting by a Saudi Prince or an oligarch. We spotted a yacht owned by a very famous billionaire. You’ll be pleased to know that for the rest of us there’s a free section of beach without kabanas on Psarou with a taverna next to it for food. Bit pricy though so recommend BYO food. Water and ice creams were priced ok though. The water on Mykonos in early June has been pretty cool when you first get in but it’s fine after a short time.

This must be one of the nicest beaches in the island, but it is spoiled by to many narcissistic posers full of their own self importance, and totally ridiculous prices that makes even Cannes seem cheap. Go there for any early morning dip, avoid paying silly, no sorry ridiculous prices for a lounger, and leave before all the obnoxious posers arrive.

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!

My sister and I visited Mykonos in mid-October — the end of the tourist season for the island. The downside of this is that lots of places are closed at this time, but the upside is that you don't get the intolerable shoulder-to-shoulder crowds of 20-some-year-old women posing as if they're lingerie models while their boyfriends desperately try to snap an Instagram-worthy photos they'll approve of.

I haven't been to the other beaches, so I can't compare Psarou to them, but I thoroughly enjoyed this one. When we went, it was relatively quiet, not all the lounge chairs on the beach were taken, and there was a healthy mix of people of all ages (families with children, aspiring 20-some Insta influencers and just normal tourists looking for an idyllic place to get some sun).

The most important thing to remember: The lounge chairs ARE NOT free. Everything here has a fee. That's just how Mykonos is. The first place we tried charged 100 Euros for a pair of lounge chairs, so we kept shopping around and landed on Cavo Psarou, a beach bar/restaurant that provided lounge chairs for 25 Euros a pair, plus unpretentious service (which can be hard to find on the island at times). Drinks will be expensive no matter what beach you're on — expect to pay between 10 and 17 Euros for a cocktail.

Weather was PERFECT in October, bar-to-lounge-chair cocktail service was decent and we really enjoyed the view while getting a pre-winter tan.
