Let us navigate you by giving you a glimpse of what the alternative, majestic and spiritual side of Mykonos is all about!

Mykonos Highlights

Frangia beach: Perhaps one of the most private beaches of the island, Frangia Beach is a sandy, quiet and isolated beach – haven with crystal clear turquoise waters. A picture-perfect setting for those who want to experience an “all by myself” moment at the beach. Frangia beach is located on the way to Lia beach which is connected via a rough dirt road. Before getting there make sure you have water or food with you since the nearest market is 1,5 kilometers away. 

Fokos beach: Isolated with thick sand and rocks all around it creating a wild landscape, Fokos Beach is the ideal place for those who seek moments of isolation and relaxation away from the island’s crowded beaches. Its clean sandbanks and waters will lift your spirit up!

The beach is situated on the wilder northwestern coast of the island near Ano Mera.

Ftelia beach: A stunning bohemian yet windy place, Ftelia beach is a quiet destination that looks like a lagoon due to the rocks that surround it. Ftelia hosts many windsurfing games with participants from all over the world. Apart from windsurfing, Ftelia can offer you both fun and relaxation thanks to the sunbeds available for tanning and napping. Ftelia beach is also the perfect destination for photography lovers. Whether you want to surf the clear waters or simply enjoy a more tranquil scene, Ftelia Beach is the right place for you! Ftelia Beach is located north-east side of Mykonos town. 

Merchia Beach: This tiny beach is tucked away in the northeastern side of Mykonos. Located 12 kilometers from Mykonos Town, Merchia Beach remains natural and authentic, is a fine sandy beach, with deep clear waters, and there are some trees nearby that can offer you shade.
