Kalo Livadi Mykonos travel guide

The approach road is from Ano Mera and there is car parking along the back of the beach. It's not a party beach but it's popular with families, particularly the Greeks.

Kalo Livadi has sunbeds and umbrellas and low-key water sports. Surrounding hills are dotted with villa apartments and small hotels.

Even though the beach is south-facing it is quite exposed to the northerly meltemi wind and a bamboo fence has been erected to provide some protection.

There are beach bars and a taverna with some natural shade to be found at the back of Kalo Livadi beach. You can also find shops and a mini-market for basic supplies.

There is a regular bus service to the road intersection at the top of the hill and it's about a 10 minute walk to Kalo Livadi beach, although most arrive by car.

There are also boats from Platis Yialos and Paradise Beach and Kalo Livadi is usually the last port of call for caiques that travel between the south coast beaches.

Kalo Livadi is worth searching out if you are looking for a family beach on Mykonos and want to avoid the loud music and the cruising typical of party beaches but it is still very crowded.
