Fokos Beach

A remote beach for sunbathing surrounded by natural beauty


Fokos Beach, Mykonos

Featuring a wild landscape on a rocky bay in the northern part of the island, this is one of Mykonos’ “hidden beaches,” free of crowds. It’s faced by a taverna, but is usually nearly deserted, with only a few sunbathers (who often choose to be nude). It is, however, a popular spot for horseback riding, so don’t be surprised if you see horses coming down the road towards the beach.

If you were wondering if there were any tranquil, undeveloped beaches left in Mykonos, you have found it. It feels quite remote, despite not being far from Mykonos Town. There are better beaches for swimming (here the sea can be quite choppy) and it’s often windy, but this is the top destination for those looking for a peaceful beach and natural beauty.
