Psarou Beach#7 in Best Things To Do in Mykonos
Price & Hours
If you're looking to have fun in the sun without having to put up with rowdy parties and nude bathers, skip Paradise in favor of Psarou Beach. Located northwest of Paradise Beach along the coast, Psarou's powdery sand, clear blue waves and more relaxing atmosphere make this beach popular among families and honeymooners. However, this stretch of coastline has begun to lure larger and larger crowds, including herds of water sports enthusiasts and extravagant yachts. This beach is also known for its great windsurfing and waterskiing conditions, as well as its scuba diving center. To lay claim to some prime real estate, try to get here in the morning, while other sun-seekers are still sleeping off the night before.
Past visitors also suggested bringing plenty of euros since amenities – like beach chairs and cocktails – are expensive here. The beach itself is free to visit, but according to visitors, it's difficult to find a stretch of sand that doesn't require you to rent a beach chair. The beach can be reached via taxi or by bus from the Fabrika bus station.

#1 Little Venice
This Chora neighborhood is known as one of the most stunning places on the island. Overlooking the southwest end of the harbor, it was here that many early ship captains decided to settle down and built uniquely magnificent homes overlooking the sea. Today, many of these historic homes have been transformed into a variety of cozy restaurants, trendy bars, shops and nightclubs, making this a bustling place at all hours of the day.
Recent visitors offered mixed reviews for Little Venice. Some described it as a beautiful place to relax with a drink, especially at sunset. However, other travelers said it's overpriced and crowded, especially when the cruise ships are docked. If you do visit, plan to stop by the windmills for even more photo ops as the two sightseeing hot spots are within walking distance of each other. The area is free to peruse, though you'll want to have euros on hand should a drink, snack or trinket catch your eye.
