Megali Amos is a beach on the edge of Mykonos town. Surprisingly it’s usually very, very quiet. This is because there tends to be a lot of wind.
The name Megali Ammos means large sand and it is a quiet beach where only few people come, mainly due to the frequent school excursions in this place and the fact that next to the beach is the main road. The beach has no umbrellas due to the strong winds.
It is a good place to relax on the sand or just take a walk along the shore. There are a few hotels and apartments and a small traditional tavern just a few steps from the seashore.
Mykonos recommended hotels near Megali Ammos beach: Markos Beach Hotel, Mykonos Bay Resort & Villas, Cape Mykonos, Grand Beach Hotel, Mykonos Beach Hotel, Karavas Apartments, Villa Margarita and more.
Surprisingly it’s usually very, very quiet. This is because there tends to be a lot of wind. It’s not one of the best beaches, because it is so close to a road, but if you like to escape the crowds that you find on most of the other beaches this beach could be an option.
Megali Ammos is maybe an option for people that want to stay near Mykonos Town (it is directly connected to the town, the beach starts just behind the famous windmills of Mykonos Town), but prefer a quiet and relaxed place. The center of Mykonos Town with all its bars and discotheques is around the corner, but at Megali Ammos Beach you will almost not or completely not be bothered by this.
