    Agios Stefanos is lovely
    Small family quiet beach. Amazing water temperature and enough space for towels. Grocery store and a couple of great restaurants nearby. Bus stop for Mykonos town and the New Port just there. Swimming at night was also great.

    Ag Stefanos lovely for a weeks break.
    Last minute decision to find some winter sun. Found a great deal with TuI. It was the last week of the season. Our hotel Little Prince in Agios Stefanos was great, not fancy but had everything we needed. It was clean, the room was big, clean and had a balcony overlooking the pool. The shower was clean & powerful. Restaurant served reasonably priced good food (wouldn't recommend the lamb in blue cheese though. Humous was amazing also the fresh fish & sizzling dishes. Only disappoint was lack of wine choices - not fan of Greek wines. Beautiful unspoilt beach with few bars/restaurants/loungers/umbrellas. Lovely walks, up steep hills to fantastic views & fabulous Restaurant on the hill top. Next town brews its own beer & has lovely tavernas all offering a host of traditional meals. We took a coach tour (10hrs) around the north of the island & to Corfu town. We seen some spectacular sights enroute including a short boat trip to the caves. Points to consider: 2½ hr from airport to Agios Stefanos because Tui arranged a large coach instead of mini busses so there was lots of drop offs & pickups. Corfu town good for a day visit especially the old Town. Sidari was 15min drive from Ag Stefanos which was more touristy & lively - good for a visit. Lots of walking which we enjoy so bring trainers. Avoid Barras Restaurant in Ag Stefanos - service & food not good.

    Authentic, beautiful Taverna on the water in San Stefanos.
    Fagopoteion Restaurant is a little gem with fresh authentic and fantastic Greek food, with a location that’s straight out of Mama Mia. We sailed up the coast and drove into the gorgeous little cove where the owner waved us in to the little jetty and we moored the boat and walked along the wooden pier and sat right next to the water. Absolutely stunning location. The owner welcomed us and we ordered food I had swordfish and my wife had the beef patitsada, while this was being freshly prepared we had home made tzatziki and crusty bread with a Greek salad and we have never had tzatziki this good, anywhere and his homemade Feta cheese was lovely and creamy in the salad, delicious. The swordfish nearly filled my plate and the beef in the patitsada, melted in your mouth it was so tender. The food was amazing and with a couple of local beers to wash it down it was a fantastic meal in the sun, very reasonably priced, in a setting so beautiful it looks like we were photoshopped onto a background. Stunning and highly recommended.

    Wonderful Beach Town
    Early October the water was warm and the weather was 27 & sunny each day! Perfect to enjoy a swim or rent a boat like we did! A lovely town to walk through the and have a coffee or a gyro for lunch! Enjoy many great restaurants for stunning sunsets.

What a gorgeous beach this is!
You can drive and park right best you this sandy beach. Clear turquoise water and gentle waves.
If you take a set of two sunbeds and a parasol for €8, you get €2 back on your bar purchases and the use of a massive pool ( Athens hotel) overlooking the beach. Magical and highly recommended!

Lovely long clean beach , with good excellent beach bars close by. The sand was clean , sunbeds plentiful , comfortable and quite cheap at 7.50 - 8 euro for the day , when compared to other destinations . The sea was crystal clear and child friendly being shallow for some distance.
Each time we visited which was almost daily there was a fresh breeze which was most welcome given the temperatures experienced
All in all well worth a visit..

Lovely soft sand, shallow bed and can walk out into the sea quite far without taking your feet off the floor. The watersports are cheaper than others in the area and don't overpower the beach or the peace and quiet. Plenty of sunbeds from restaurants and no pushy sales persons.

It’s not very well signposted so check your map constantly! They are charging for su beds now, but there’s loads of space to set up your own camp. Jetski was too expensive for me at 45euro for 20 mins. Sun beds range from 6 euro to 7.5 euros dependant on where you are. Nice restaurants on the front but we went to Arillas for lunch (also really nice beach). Both Sandy and shallow.

Loved the beach, it’s a super long beach therefore there’s plenty of space to have your own space without being too close to strangers. If you keep walking to the right (north side) and just keep on walking and passing some rocks etc you get to the nudist part where you can enjoy the beach nude and there’s plenty of clay to give yourself a quick treatment.

Very clear water and very picturesque, highly recommend, especially to naturists.

Good sandy beach with shallow waters ideal for the not too confident swimmer. Plenty of sunbeds though you will have to pay for the majority of them, backed by 4 or more beach bars/taverna's. Locals and tourists can park on the beach for ease of access though I personally could of had issues with some quad bike customers driving their hired bikes all over the beach, supposedly not allowed. Due to the time of year of our visit September I have never experienced so many wasps, an absolute pest, be aware, take the bite/sting anointment.

My wife and myself are holidaying in Agios Stefanos again and in the week we have been here there has been a rapid deterioration in the state of the local beach (due to an influx of seaweed affecting 75% of the beach) which is now in danger of moving from a prized asset to a distinct liability.

This is such a shame coming hard on the heels of COVID rapidly becoming less of a threat and it is important that the local Municipality steps in to demonstrate to all the tourists who have now returned to Agios Stefanos that they are taking the problem seriously.

I certainly hope to see such action taken during our final two weeks here or else this may well prove to be our last visit to what has become one of our favourite holiday destinations!!

After a 2 year absence (see previous review), it is nice to be back in Agios Stefanos again and to see the beach looking in such good order.

So far, I have yet to see any Jellyfish and relatively little seaweed. The same applies to the number of visitors which - particularly in the current circumstances - are understandably well down. Indeed some of the larger Hotels remain closed.

As for the beach itself, it is in good order - plenty of hard sand which, coupled with shallow water, makes it ideal for both swimming and walking. The nudist area still remains but numbers are also well down!

All in all, arguably the best beach on the Island?
