Fokos Beach and Taverna: Another Kind Of Paradise on Mykonos

Away from heady beach bars and rows upon rows of sun-loungers, Fokos Beach offers a simpler, more natural side of Mykonos.


Fokos, located on the wilder northeastern coast of the island, is a rare gem of a Mykonian beach; a remote, untamed natural beauty, far from the crowds with a unique air of privacy.

To reach it, head towards Ano Mera, then follow the road signs to Fokos. As you approach, look for the wind turbine on your right and take the scenic dirt track that guides you through farmland down to the sea. Let the crystal-clear waters and the warmth of the sun build your appetite, and then head to the recently renovated Fokos Taverna for an unforgettable meal.  

At Fokos, food is prepared with the utmost love and care, just as families on Mykonos have been doing in their own private kitchens for generations. The delectable menu features delicacies inspired by traditional Mykonian and Mediterranean cuisine, made with fresh, seasonal ingredients.

The taverna’s grill-master will be ready to prepare freshly barbecued grilled meat, shrimp and fish fresh from the sea. Pair these with exquisite Greek wines from the thoughtfully prepared wine list. To complete the experience, try one of the mouthwatering, freshly-made desserts.
