Family-Friendly Beaches in Mykonos

The Best Beaches for the Kids

Mykonos Beach

Mykonos is better known as a party island, a gay mecca, and a trendy luxurious destination, and less as a place for the kids. Yes, there are beaches almost completely taken over by bars with loud music, and there are unofficial nude beaches which parents may not feel comfortable taking their children to, but there are also family-friendly hotels and family-friendly beaches. You just have to know where to go:

  • Agios Ioannis
  • Agios Ioannis Beach, Mykonos

    Far from the party beaches, this one can also get crowded, but has calm crystal-clear waters for the kids.

  • Agios Stefanos
  • Agios Stefanos Beach, Mykonos

    This is the closest main beach to the main town, so families find more options of places to eat and to stay. It’s usually protected from the winds, and kids enjoy the shallow waters.

  • Kalafatis
  • Kalafatis Beach, Mykonos

    Although it’s organized with umbrellas, sunbeds, restaurants, and water sports facilities, this isn’t yet a party beach, and therefore attracts families looking for a quieter spot.

  • Ornos
  • Ornos Beach, Mykonos

    With its resort-style accommodations and different places to eat, this beach is known as one of the best for families. It can just be a little crowded.

  • Platys Gialos
  • Platys Gialos Beach, Mykonos

    Lined with hotels and restaurants, this large beach not only has a variety of places to stay and eat, it also has shallow crystal-clear waters for the kids.

  • Kalo Livadi
  • Kalo Livadi Beach, Mykonos

    Despite its Ibiza-like club, this is not exactly a party beach. It has plenty of sandy space for everyone, and therefore also attracts families, who come for the child-friendly shallow waters.
