Agia Anna Mykonos travel guide

Not to be mistaken for its better-known and more popular namesake in the west, Agia Anna (east) is a small, sheltered shingle beach overlooked by a large hotel complex.

Agia Anna beach is south facing and it's set in a deep sheltered bay with a low hill behind covered in scrub and just a trio of trees in the middle to provide a little natural shade.

A bamboo fence that runs behind the length of the Agia Anna beach helps to give some protection from the northerly winds that can blow strongly in August.

There are plenty of sunbeds to rent near the hotel on the western end of the main beach.

There is a large dirt area behind that provides ample parking space and from here a track heads east steeply up and over the headland then down again to a small fishing port with a pleasant taverna.

Small beaches of shingle and stone lie on either side of a kidney-shaped isthmus that lies behind the fishing port.

The neighbouring beach of Kalafatis makes this Agia Anna a good, if relatively quiet, area to stay on Mykonos with a pleasant enough landscape and some very fine sea views from the hills.

To the north is the beach at Tsarna, a long stretch of coarse sand with a taverna, watersports and some smart holiday apartments.
