For a relaxing, peaceful, blissful holiday away in the sun, Agios Stefanos is the perfect place for a simple holiday. This quiet corner of Mykonos caters specifically for tourists with a huge choice of tavernas and accommodation ranging from boutique hotels to apartments that are great to share with friends. The sweeping beach is the big draw here though, with soft sand welcoming anyone who wishes to spend the day there.
If you want to get away from the beach for a while, make the 3.5km journey by car or bus to the bustling Mykonos Town. Just like Agios Stefanos, the buildings here are white-washed, giving the town a Santorini-esque feel. This town is a weave of mazes and is a brilliant place to explore. Why not pick up unique souvenirs such as handmade leather bags and beautiful jewellery that no one else will have back home.
Agios Stefanos is a slow paced village with a steady way of life so most of the activity here centres on the beautiful beach. This sandy part of Mykonos’ coastline has a shallow slope into the water making it great for families, and snorkelers will love the clear water. For the slightly more active, beach volleyball can be found at the end of Agios Stefanos and sun worshippers can chill out on the available sun loungers.
As a place that is well geared up for accommodating all the visitors that come to this place every year, the restaurants serve a variety of dishes ranging from the traditional Greek moussaka and feta salad to family friendly pizza. Waves is a popular beachside restaurant and evening drinks are quite tame in Agios Stefanos so cocktails and beers are more than likely enjoyed while watching the sun set and tucking in to a delicious meal.
