Psarou beach, Mykonos
What’s the deal?
It may be famed for it’s party scene, but the truth is Mykonos specialty is it’s beaches. And with it’s calm sea, picture-perfect sun loungers and cliff-side views, Psarou is one of my favourites on the island.
How to get there
Tucked away on the south-western side of the island, Psarou is sheltered but easy enough to find without much assistance. Follow the signage from Mykonos town south towards the sea – it’s pretty much a straight line, you can’t miss it.
You’ll notice from my photos the distinct lack of people on the beach – and no we didn’t get up at the crack of dawn. We visited Mykonos at the start of the season (end of May) and it was straight up idyllic. However I have been told by friends that in the height of the busy season (July and August) you need to get your hotel to book sun loungers a day in advance. I kid you not. So to fully enjoy this beach I would highly recommend going outside of the high season; although to be fair this goes for pretty much anywhere in Europe.
