Golden sands and family-friendly shallows of clear blue waters have made Psarou Beach a Mykonos favourite for decades. Just ten minutes’ drive time south from Mykonos International Airport, its large protected bay often plays host to the yachts of the rich and famous anchoring immediately offshore.
Although Psarou Beach is a good size at 150 metres in length, this means it still gets crowded during the peak summer season. There can even be a waiting list for people wanting to experience the hot sand occupied by rows of neatly placed sun loungers and their accompanying umbrellas (from €25 per day). To either side, visitors will find the low rocky hills that ensure its waters remain calm. Behind it are a good number of restaurants and places to stay.
A dive centre operates from the beach, and various water sports including jet ski rental are also available.
Because of its popularity, parking can be difficult to find, although there is also a bus from Mykonos Town (Chora) which stops ten minutes’ walk away in Platys Gialos.
