The flip side of the Greek coin on Mykonos, are beautiful breathtaking beaches that are very well run. Comfy sun beds, grass umbrellas, margaritas, and mojito’s are at your beck and call, brought to you by Greek Gods with sun kissed skin. The warm crystal clear water in the blazing sun is heaven on earth and the big plus, there is no such thing as time.
Psarou Beach – I love this beach, the elegant turquoise sunbeds are visually stunning with the contrasting maroon umbrellas. The beach gets packed and yet the service remains tip top. The restaurant is fantastic and the buzz is all day long. When the sunsets it’s about that time that the beach heats up again! However you can B! a lounge lizard as I chose to do on one of those cumfy beds and watch the sun go down. Mmmmmmm
Paranga Beach – is next on my hit list. It is a widespread open beach well managed and great looking. My advice is to get there early if you want a lounger on the first or second row along the edge of the sea. The restaurant Kalua is good, Mediterranean fresh clean food. Mussels, salads, grilled fish, and do try a side order of chips in truffle oil, Yummy! The music gets loud as the sunset creeps in.
Elia Beach – Is no easy reach, it is about 25 minutes from the centre, so get your directions straight. The beach has about four large sunbed areas to choose from, the chill factor is peaceful and the music is kept to the crazy side of the beach. Good swimming, water sports and very comfy sunbeds. I found the restaurant to B! a bit like a Club med food hall so not my first choice.
Ftelia Beach is my first choice for a restaurant on the beach. It’s the best kept secret…….until now! It’s where the Greeks and wind surfers hang out. Scrumptious home cooked food; soft colours complimenting the outdoor décor to the restaurant, natural beauty and tranquil bliss, it is definitely buzz-worthy!
If you want a crazy time mixed with a chilled factor, wind in your hair, cocktails and good food, then Mykonos is definitely one to have on the agenda. Personally, next time I think, I will go to an island where there are no cars, just donkeys.
