Abstract from Page 11:

Don't be fooled into believing that all the people who visit Mykonos every summer are attracted only by the cosmopolitan crowds and the exciting night life the island has to offer. Summer in the Aegean means sea and sun, and the beaches of Mykonos are some of the best places in the Mediterranean for that.

Those spectacular beaches, most of them with their seaside cafes, sun-beds, and bars, are one of the main reasons that Mykonos has become so popular. The most famous and cosmopolitan beaches are to be found at the southern part of the island, where they are protected from the strong summer wind-the meltemi mentioned before. From the long, sandy beach of Ornos, decorated with old fishing boats, to the world renowned and beautiful beaches of Psarou, Paranga, Platis Gialos, Elia, Paradise (known also as Kalamopodi beach) and Super Paradise beach, you are certainly going to find the beach that looks right for you.
