Old Port Beach

Central Beach with a View

Old Port Beach, Mykonos

With so many great beaches in Mykonos, no one would make this small stretch of sand on a bay by the old port their top choice. However, if you’re staying at one of the hotels nearby, or if you simply want to sit in the sun and get your feet wet after going for a walk around the maze of the old center of town, this is your spot. Due to its central location, with many boats passing by, it’s a picturesque and inviting place, but swimming isn’t really recommended, despite the crystal-clear waters.
