Holidays to Kalo Livadi provide a quiet beach setting among pastoral hills, not far from the bright lights of Mykonos Town.

Quiet life

Set on the south-eastern end of the Greek island of Mykonos and a 30-minute drive from the bustle of Mykonos Town, Kalo Livadi's a laidback slice of seaside with rolling hills and crystal-clear waters. The town has an easygoing countryside feel, but what really makes this rural beauty stand out is its beautiful beach and modest crowds.

Idyllic island shores

Kalo Livadi's beach has long-lured locals and tourists alike with its clean sands and cyan-blue blue water. It's also the largest stretch on Mykonos, so there's plenty of space to work on those sandcastles – or your tan. A handful of tavernas and bars sit behind the sunloungers with lunch and cold drinks on standby.

Fun in the sun

If you fancy more action than Kalo Livadi's sleepy scene, head to the nearby beaches. Just a 10-minute drive away, Lia Beach makes an excellent scuba diving spot, while next-door neighbour Kalafatis is more popular with windsurfers. For a culture-focused daytrip, you can't beat Mykonos Town – a 30-minute drive west.
