Why Kalo Livadi is a Staple Mykonos Beach Deserving a Top Spot on Your List
Meaning Good Valley in Greek, Kalo Livadi sits at a beautiful valley on the southeastern coast of Mykonos, and right in the middle of the distance separating two of its most popular siblings, Kalafatis and Elia beaches. This cosmopolitan and utterly enticing piece of pure white sand invites the most discerning visitor to a dive in calm, azure waters only to emerge fully rejuvenated and energized – an entirely different, stress-free person.
Somewhat underrated (this usually happens when you are surrounded by the stars of the family!) Kalo Livadi is not less dazzling or elite than the rest of its counterparts. In fact, it is one of the best locations to rent a magnificent sea-facing villa and wake up to heart-melting ocean views that blend thousands of shades of blue as the azure Mediterranean sky mixes with the cobalt of the Aegean Sea somewhere on the horizon.
And, if you are not yet convinced, here are some of the reasons that have made thousands of visitors so far admit they are forever in love with this idyllic Mykonos spot.
Feels like heaven
Besides its Ibiza-like atmosphere and lively (and, at the same time, relaxing) ambiance, Kalo Livadi is a beach for every type of Mykonos holidaymaker, regardless of the requirements, desires, age, or tastes.
So, parents can enjoy their time at this Mykonos hotspot, letting the little ones play safely on the sandy coast or shallow waters while they pamper themselves with a refreshing cocktail. Youngsters will find everything to their heart’s content here, primarily thanks to the trendy Lohan and Solymar beach club and beach club restaurant, respectively, that fill the air with a party vibe with subtle touches of luxury and superior beach services. As for sports enthusiasts, Kalo Livadi pleases them with plenty of sea sports, including snorkeling, scuba diving, kayaking, and paddling, as well as beach volleyball and many more.
Of course, there are plenty of sandy spaces for everyone to use as they please, with endless sunbeds and umbrellas, and a line of hip beach bars and tavernas serving delicious seafood dishes and traditional Greek cuisine. This captivating long piece of land with the adorable whitewashed chapel adorning its surroundings and the unbeatable vistas of the equally ravishing Naxos island is hands down, the dreamiest Mykonos place to unwind and relax.
Experiences to be lived at Kalo Livadi
Besides the exceptional array of great restaurants and tavernas near (and on) the beach serving palate-pleasing Mediterranean cuisine, local dishes, and fresh fish and seafood options, such as NEMO, you can also consider a luxury speed boat cruise.
Kalo Livadi is home to boutique companies offering exclusive private charters around the Island of the Winds and the other Cyclades islands on luxury super RIB boats. Trust the captain and see amazing isolated coves and bewildering shores away from the crowds (or more cosmopolitan ones – depends on what you want!), and delve into endless island hopping and sea safari. Most of the time, such cruises include plenty of complimentary services, such as chilled sparkling wine, snorkelling equipment, SUPs, sea scooters, refreshments, fresh towels, and more.
Other than that, Kalo Livadi is pretty close to some of the most famous Mykonos attractions, including picturesque Lia Beach, scenic Ornos Bay, celeb-favoured Elia Beach, peaceful Agios Sostis, lively Platis Gialos, Paraga beach with the excellent relaxed ambiance, tranquil Panormos beach, and Super Paradise beach with the legendary party scene!
Insider’s Tips for Exceptional Beach Times
For VIP beach experiences, you can rent your sunbeds and umbrellas on the first two rows and have the waves splashing on your feet! In this case, the beach clubs that line Kalo Livadi, especially Solymar, will provide you with a wide range of staples, such as beach towels (refreshing cold ones included), a drinks and beach food menu, and amuse bouche.
Of course, you can make the entire experience even more private by renting a private luxury cabana that comes with lots of extras and all the pampering you can imagine. Or opt for the exclusive VIP areas that can host up to 15 people. The only thing you need to be aware of is the arrival time requirements, which vary depending on which option you choose.
How to get to Kalo Livadi Beach
For the time being, the only way to reach the enchanting shore is by car as the bus running from the Old Port in Mykonos Town to Kalo Livadi has been interrupted for the last couple of years. The beach is around 9km from the capital and you will find several available parking spots right above Kalo Livadi beach.
Needless to say, this can be one of the stops of a sailing cruise, where you drop anchor in the open sea and enjoy the water activities that open up in front of you. Or simply soak some rays on the deck of your elegant yacht or catamaran with a glass of the best wine or champagne and delicious snacks.
Another alternative is to benefit from our concierge services and request private transfers via a private chauffeur. In this case, you only let your driver of your itinerary and daily wishes and they will make sure you get there the most convenient and comfortable way, in an air-conditioned, luxury SUV or another stylish vehicle.
