Psarou Beach

Famous for attracting celebrities and wannabes from all over the world, idyllic Psarou Beach, backed by lush greenery in a sheltered cove just 4km (2.5 miles) from the town of Mykonos, is a pristine beach with fine white sand and clear, turquoise waters.

A stone’s throw away from Platis Yalos, this fashionable beach, surrounded by luxury hotels and lined with fancy restaurants and bars, features classy if pricy beach services -booking sunbeds in advance is essential during peak season- and one of the island’s most glamorous social scenes. Psarou Beach also features many watersport options, such as jet skiing, parasailing and windsurfing, as well as one of the island’s best diving centers.
