Choose your favorite sport, follow the professionals’ advice and have a blast in some of the best beaches for water sports in Mykonos.

Korfos, only 2,5 km from Chora on the road to Ornos. It’s a paradise for kitesurf and windsurf lovers, because the bay forms a perfect corridor for the strong and stable north summer wind, also known as “meltemi”. The sandy beach and the shallow waters make the beach ideal for both pro riders and beginners.

Kalafatis, at the south eastern part of the island, about 12 km from Chora. It is the meeting point for all water sports fans every year, as it has one of the most organized water sports center in Mykonos, offering water ski, scuba diving, kayak, windsurf, jet ski, wakeboard and sailing.

Elia, one of the largest beaches on the south side of the island, just 10 km from Chora.  Gay friendly and overlooking Naxos island, Elia has a water sports center where you could try your skill in parasailing, water ski and jet ski.

Ftelia is considered a surfer’s paradise due to the strong north winds that almost always stroke the beach. It is located on the north part of the island, 9 km from Chora, not organized but pet friendly.

Platis Gialos, one of the most popular beaches on the island, just 5 km from Chora. Fully organized and equipped for all kinds of water sports, like wakeboard, wakesurf, tube rides, jet ski and water ski, the beach is also the place where you can catch a small boat trip to other famous beaches like Paradise, Elia, Agrari and Super Paradise.

Psarou, the most cosmopolitan beach of the island, just 4 km from Chora. Located in a sheltered cove, it features one of the island’s beast diving centers while its clear waters are ideal for water sports like jet skiing, parasailing and windsurfing.
