Fokos Beach is a quiet and beautiful, non-commercial alternative to the sun bed covered, DJed beaches popular on the southern coast of Mykonos. Here, the public area is the entire beach, not small sections on each end.

Located 13 km northeast of Mykonos Town, Fokos Beach is in a quiet and secluded bay. The sand is clean and soft with natural surroundings. There are no umbrella, sunbed or water sport rentals, crowds, DJs, or vendors that you’ll find on the more well known beaches of Mykonos. This also means there are no tourist facilities. There is the wonderful little Fokos Tavern on the beach, serving excellent food and selling handmade pottery made by the owner. No public buses come to Fokos – so you’ll need to get here by private transportation.
