The secret, quiet part of Mykonos

In everybody’s mind Mykonos is ideal for partying and flirting all day and night long. But what is great with this island is its variety. Basically on Mykonos you can do whatever you want: party, eat at expensive restaurants and meet new people every hour on the one hand, relax and feel that you are in an uncharted area on the other. Your next stop in your Island Hopping in Greece should be Mykonos! Take the Greek Island Pass and be prepared for amazing vacations.

The quiet side of the island consists of beaches that are not so crowded, without loud music and beach bars from one side to another. Except from the beaches you can find quiet places to eat and drink in the Town of the island. What you should take care of? Visit these places before midnight, when everybody on the island sleeps after the swimming in order to sit back before the party until dawn. The Chora of Mykonos is a normal Cyclades Town before midnight. Couples and families walk around the small streets, eat souvlaki and visit the great shops of the island. Drink a cocktail at Small Venice and feel that you are in the most romantic place in the world.

The quiet beaches of the island are Ftelia, Agios Sostis, Kapari, Houlakia, Fokos and Mersini.

Ftelia is a long, wide, windy and sandy beach without umbrellas and beach- chairs with only few visitors. It is really a true paradise for windsurfers and for lovers of the adventure.

Ftelia Beach

Agios Sostis is one of the most famous undeveloped beaches of Mykonos and is the quiter version of the beach nearby, Panormos. It is a great option for those searching peace but you have to avoid it on a windy day with meltemi.

Kapari is a small beach on the west side of Mykonos that will charm you with its simple natural beauty. The perfect spot for romance and peaceful swim.

Houlakia is one of the few beaches on the island with pebbles. It is a natural site of particular beauty only 5 km from Chora and it is prohibited to remove any rocks. It has nothing to offer, no taverna or bar nearby and it is the ultimate destination for the alternative travellers of Mykonos.

Fokos is located on the north coast of the island and is a fine sandy and secluded beach with deep water. It is almost unknown to the tourist due to the difficult road that one has to drive in order to reach it.

Next to Fokos you will find another undeveloped but charming beach, Mersini. The best way to reach it is by boat, because the road is bumpy.
