BeachNuts Beach Guide for:
Agios Stefanos Kalafati and Ornos
Beach lovers will find glorious golden sands at beaches such as Agios Stefanos, Kalafati and Ornos. The waters are wonderfully calm and safe.
Mykonos is unusual in that scuba diving is legal (in many islands it is prohibited due to loss of artefacts on the sea bed) and there are many good dive centres. There is an excellent bus service as well as a kaiki service connecting all the beaches. Platys Gialos is a good family beach and Psarou is a lovely beach with paths to the crazy party beaches of Paradise and Super Paradise Beach. Ftelia on Panormous Bay is best for windsurfing.
Elia is said to be the best beach on the island and is the last stop on the kaiki. It is the island's longest beach and boasts an excellent restaurant, but is mainly nudist.
island has the benefit of an international airport so you can fly directly from the UK with various charter airlines. Alternatively you can fly to Athens, and take a short internal flight on to Mykonos. Another option is to fly to Athens and then make your way to Rafina Port. There are several highspeed hydrofoils each day connecting to Mykonos and the scenic trip takes about 2.5 hours.
