Luxury Villas in Megali Ammos, Mykonos
Luxury Holidays in Megali Ammos, Mykonos Megali Ammos is one of the closest – if not the closest – beaches to Mykonos Town (less than a mile away), which is why it is regularly referred to as the Mykonos Town Beach. The sea here is shallow while the beach itself receives large crowds, especially after mid-day. However, don’t expect it to be a fully organised beach, like its nearby cousins (i.e. Ornos Beach, Super Paradise Beach, Paradise Beach, and Psarou) because the strong northern winds make it difficult to place sunbeds and umbrellas. Nevertheless, it is the perfect place for scuba diving and windsurfing, due to these winds!
Now, if you are wondering how it got its name (Megali Ammos means Large Sand in Greek), let’s reveal that the sand used to extend as far as the hill sides, much further than the current road. That being said, the seashore is lined with hotels and apartments, and a small traditional tavern serving fresh seafood is situated just a few steps from the edge of the water for those of you that would love to enjoy local dishes while dipping their feet in the crystal clear waters of the Aegean.
If you want to really enjoy the views offered at Megali Ammos, you should stay in one of the luxurious villas that are perched on the hills right above Mykonos Town. Commanding sweeping panoramas of the town and bay from their elevated position, they are perfect for multiple families and large groups. Their close proximity of Mykonos Chora and all the nightlife and action Mykonos has to offer combined with the fact that they are, at the same time, peaceful retreats, make them highly sought after properties, particularly from celebrities and famous stars that come here and need an exclusive place to spend their holiday, without sacrificing privacy, opulence, or quality.
