Holidays in
Megali Ammos

A serene side to Mykonos Town

An easy walk from Mykonos Town, Megali Ammos holidays provide a quiet beach and an ideal place to retreat and enjoy the island’s coastline. Holidays to Magali Ammos offer a relaxed vibe, with a choice of hotels and a taverna on the beach. A long reef fringes the shore, affording paddlers glimpses of colourful fish and crabs. Nearby Mykonos Town is a bewitching maze of narrow streets, bougainvillea-clad buildings and picture-perfect churches, while boutiques dot every corner.

Its famous designer shops will keep you occupied for hours, but it’s when the sun goes down that Mykonos really gets going. From DJ sets at beach superclubs to cabaret and live music, Mykonos Town does nothing by half. After a night in the old town, a day spent relaxing in the peace and quiet of Megali Ammos could be just what the doctor ordered.

Your Megali Ammos questions, answered

Megali Ammos is a 15-minute walk from the centre of Mykonos Town, following a coastal path with views of the famous ‘kato mili’ (windmills).

Anyone who wants to escape the bustle of the city. The reef is particularly good for children to splash around in the ankle-deep warm water.

Bring your own towels and umbrellas, as there are no public beach facilities, although you can pop into the beach restaurants for snacks and amenities.
