MYKONOS INSIDER EXPERIENCES

AGIOS SOSTIS MYKONOS BEACH

Yours Privet Beach

Mykonos is known for its party beaches that go till the early hours of the morning. During the summer, beaches with names like Paradise and Super Paradise are packed with tons of people, DJs, drinks, and plenty of debaucheries. Even when we visited, which was the slower season, some of the beaches still felt like Spring Break.

Agios Sostis is a Mykonos beach that is quite the opposite. Located roughly 2.8 miles (4.5 km) from Mykonos town on the North end of the island, it can only be reached by a rental car, ATV, or taxi.

BUDDHA BAR BEACH

DELOS IS HISTORY ITSELF

Where Light Was Born

It’s a UNESCO world heritage site. It’s an ark of history, floating lazily on the waters of the Aegean Sea, just a few miles away from Mykonos. It’s a chance to walk around the revival of the glory of the Greek civilization. It’s the head priest of the Cyclades, the birthplace of the immortals.
Nowadays, Delos reserves its uniqueness to the known world: nowhere else in the Globe is there a natural insular archaeological site of this size and importance.No other island on Earth hosts so many monumental antiquities from the Archaic, the Classical, and the Hellenistic periods, i.e. the centuries of the great Greek art, on a territory used exclusively as an archaeological site.

MYKONOS HORSEBACK RIDING

A Nice Experience

A nice experience if you are interested to do something very special on the island. Riding tours in Mykonos lead to secluded beaches, old sightseeing, small chapels and spots with a breathtaking view. In particular, Mykonos riding tours can be sunset tours, family tours or even tours for therapeutic riding.

ESCAPE TO RINEIA

Endless Sany Beach

Choose the road less traveled. And remember that the best places to visit are not in the guide. Clear blue sea and quiet. White sand-blue lagoon. Rhenia is an uninhabited island with no plumbing and electricity. Walking up the hill of Rhenia, you can see Delos and Mykonos. On the Island of Rhenia, you can find solitary beaches with an exotic coast, with blond sand and clear water.
All the beaches are not crowdy at all and no tourism has disturbed its natural beauty and all are accessible only by boat. Very few tourists know about the island in going there on a day’s excursion, so if you plan it, it is possible to be the only person on one of its pristine sandy beaches.
