Kalafatis,Panormos and Aghios Sostis beach in Mykonos Island
Along with the nearby beaches of Kalo Livadi and Aghia Anna, Kalafatis is an isolated beach at the south eastern part of the island. 11-12 klm far from Chora and 3,5 klm from Ano Mera, it is one of the biggest and less frequented beaches of Mykonos, since there are only few bus services to it, and access is possible only via Ano Mera.
The few taverns offer good food, there are sea sport facilities including wind surfing and scuba diving, but not much accomodation. A thick series of trees separates the long beach from the houses of the settlement, offering the rare for Cyclades shadow. Facing the beach, on the small, “twin” cape (Venus hills) are evident traces of a prehistoric – protocycladic- settlement.
Access to Kalafatis is possible only by car; bus connection is not very frequent, but you can alsways reach it by taxi, car or motorbike.
Situated at a distance of 7 klm far from Chora, at the Northern part of the island, within the homonymous bay, Panormos is a long, cute, sandy beach with many dunes. It is a very good choice when there are southern winds, since it is well protected from the South.
Two taverns and a hotel are all the facilities offered at this remote, nudist tolerant beach.
Aghios Sostis beach
Successive to Panormos, 1,5 klm far from it at the North, within the same bay, is found the small, sandy beach of Aghios Sostis. It is probably the most quiet beach of the island, offering a small tavern with good food, and a lot of beauty, calmness and relaxation.
Access is possible only by taxi, or private means.
