Mykonos is one of the top travel destinations of the gay community worldwide. The Greek island offers gay tourists everything their heart desires: lots of gay bars and clubs, turquoise blue water, beautiful beaches, and of course more gay men than they could count. There is hardly a beach on Mykonos where you won’t find any gay visitors, since the beaches are all gay-friendly. We have selected the ones you just have to visit if you spend your holiday on Mykonos:
The beach is located in the south of Mykonos, about 10 kilometers away from Mykonos city. Elia Beach is one of the largest beaches on the island and it is especially popular with gays. The area where you can hardly save yourself from hunky men and pretty boys is on the right side and marked with a rainbow flag.
A visit in the early morning or in the evening is particularly worthwhile. It is rather quiet here in the morning and you have time for yourself, as many visitors only arrive around noon. In the evening it gets hot: At the stony beach section wild cruising takes place.
This beach is very close to Elia Beach, just behind the stony cruising-section. Still, Agrari Beach is not nearly as crowded as Elia Beach. Many gays flee here to enjoy the sea and the sun in peace. The sand is quite coarse, but the water is as turquoise blue as it is at Elia Beach.
Super Paradise Beach
In former times Super Paradise Beach was THE main gay beach of Mykonos before Elia Beach took over. However, there are still many gay visitors here, especially on the right side (if you are facing the sea), close to the gay hotspot “Jacki O’ Beach Club”. Due to the Super Paradise Club at the other end of the beach, the Super Paradise Beach turns into a huge party location in the late afternoon. Gay and straight visitors, sunbathers and clubbers: everybody is welcome, there is a very liberal spirit here.
Paraga Beach is located near the Super Paradise Beach. The beach with its’ golden sand attracts a lot of nudists, so feel free to lie in the sun without any clothes on. Cruising takes place at the southern end of the beach.
The beach is located on the north side of the island and attracts a mixed crowd. Panormos Beach can be reached by bus from Mykonos Town. At the end of the beach, behind the sun beds, there are many nudists – both gay and straight.
