There are two Agia Anna beaches in Mykonos. One is a small sandy beach you find as you walk to the right of Kalafatis (as you face the sea), by a fishing port. It remains one of the most traditional on the island, with a restaurant offering you the opportunity to enjoy fresh fish in the sun. It’s one of the most relaxing beaches, for its size and for usually being less crowded, although it also has umbrellas and sunbeds for rent.
The second Agia Anna is between Paraga and Platys Gialos (an easy walk from either of them). It’s also a quiet, relaxing beach, with large rocks where many choose to lie in the sun.
How to Get to Agia Anna Beach
There are no buses to the Agia Anna by Kalafatis, but you may take one from the Old Port to Kalafatis and then walk from there, taking you just around 5 minutes. If you’re driving, it’s 25 minutes from Mykonos Town.
For the Agia Anna by Paraga, take the bus to Paraga from the Fabrika terminal in Mykonos Town, and walk from there. You may also take the bus to Platys Gialos, from where it's also just a short walk to Agia Anna. In fact, this beach is within walking distance of four beaches: Paradise, Paraga, Platys Gialos and Psarou.
