Most beaches in Mykonos are gay-friendly, and for years the gay crowd have flocked to Paradise and Super Paradise, before moving to Elia, which is now THE gay beach on the island. There are other worth-to-visit gay beaches in this idyllic Greek destination.

1. Elia beach

One of the largest sandy beaches on Mykonos and the most gay-popular, Elia Beach is well-managed with good quality sunbeds and shades for rent. You can easily find the gay side of the beach by locating the rainbow flag at the righthand end (assuming you’re facing the sea). Beyond the rocky outcrop towards the very end there is a small sandy cove that is mostly occupied by gay nude sunbathers. Continue going over the rocks, and you arrive at Agrari Beach.

Found right over a scenic rocky spot, Agari beach is a quieter alternative to Elia. It’s a secluded gay beach and a popular cruising site among the gay sun worshipers. Agari beach is organized with sunbeds, shades, a lifeguard and an excellent restaurant. The reason to head in its direction is the more peaceful and uncrowded environment, with the same crystal-clear waters.
