Luxury Holidays in Fokos, Mykonos
If you are looking for the more natural, simpler side of Mykonos, then Fokos Beach on the wilder northeastern coast of the island will please you greatly. Away from the heady beach bars and endless rows of sun-loungers of the south, this calm and secluded hideaway with the untamed beauty and unspoilt natural surrounding is the ideal location to recharge your batteries and enjoy the bright sun that caresses your skin, or dip your toes in the crystal clear waters of the Aegean opening up in front of you.
Don’t expect to find the luxuries of the more crowded beaches and resorts at nearby Kalo Livadi, Platis Gialos and Megali Ammos; however, do prepare yourself for a unique experience. An air of privacy prevails here as you come closer and closer to this rare gem of a Mykonian beach.
How to Get There
Simple head towards Ano Mera and follow the road signs to Fokos. The sand-coloured hillsides on the right are specked with wind turbines and an amazing landscape that invites you to dive in. As soon as you reach the artificial lake of Marathi, which is the source of fresh water for the Mykonians, you know you are there.
What to Do
Part of the beach front is turned into a nudist beach so you can head towards there. For those of you that want to relax under the sun or refresh their bodies in the rejuvenating waters of the Aegean, there are plenty of areas to grant your wishes. And, if you feel like treating your taste buds with traditional Mediterranean and Mykonian dishes and fresh sea food, the recently renovated, family-run Fokos Tavern will welcome you with a delectable menu that features delicacies made with seasonal, fresh ingredients, and, of course, great wine and palate-pleasing deserts.
Where to Stay
Just a breath away from the mind-blowing, sandy beach of Fokos, you will find rare luxurious properties that combine elegance and style with the easy-going atmosphere you expect from a beach house. Built in a way so you can make the most of the staggering views and the turquoise seascape, and always distinguished by a spirit of refinement and grandeur, they offer you and up to 10 guests all the comfort and amenities you will need from a vacation home.
