Megali Ammos Beach

Megali Ammos Beach is one of the most famous beaches on Mykonos because is the nearest to the beach. One of the few beaches that you can get there by walking. It is only 600 meters away from the center of the town but it’s not overcrowded because it is a place where busses full of people come here every day to see the site.

There are also school excursions that are pretty frequent here and only a few people choose to visit this beach. Also, there are no sunbeds or sun umbrellas that you can rent because of the strong winds that will just blow them out off the beach.

Megali Ammos Beach is a perfect place to surf on the water because strong winds make great waves, so if you like board surfing you will certainly enjoy this beach. The best waves are in the morning, and the sea air will be great for the whole of next year.

Also, if you choose to spend your day on this beach there is a little tavern where you can eat during the day so you won’t have to get out of the beach to have some decent meal.

Everyone on the island is really friendly, and taverns always have local food from which they make all of their delicious specialties. In case that the restaurants don’t have certain food on the island, they will get it from the mainland and everything you will eat on Mykonos is made in Greece.

The food is great and as in all other places, you can sit and eat your food in a shady place, but also you can get it to go and eat your food laying on the sand.

The name of the tavern is Joanna’s Nikos Place Taverna and the hosts will welcome you with the biggest smiles. Usually, the owner of the taverna is always there to see that everyone is fully satisfied. Most of the people in Greece speak the English language but don’t be surprised if you hear many other languages there, which is their way of welcoming you to their restaurant or any other place.

The parking lot is above the beach so if you come by car you’ll need just a few steps to get to the water. There are many things you can do here on the beach if you like water sports.

Snorkeling would not be the option because of the strong winds that are a daily occurrence on this beach, but surfing and one new thing, which is sea fishing are available on this beach, so if you like to fish under the water, and make your meal with your skills, this is the beach that will allow you to have that experience.

The thing that may discourage you to swim in these waters, besides the strong winds, is one more thing, and that is a huge flat rock in the water that with the waves will make it that much difficult to swim to the more calm waters.

But if you like the sun, a quiet place with no loud music, and if you don’t mind huge waves this is the right beach for you and a great choice. Have a great time and enjoy the sound of waves.
