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.

Very crowded beach. Good if you like being social and like partying and day drinking. Super upscale which is a plus, but not an intimate setting at all if you're looking for a couple's getaway.

I loved the area, the beach, the sea. Yes it is expensive but it is great! Small beach, very clear and easy to swim. Also attracts many celebrities, so it is a bit over crowed.

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.…
