INTRODUCING KALO LIVADI
Compared to the round-the-clock, jetsetting pace of Mykonos Town, nearby Kalo Livadi is a relatively quiet, hillside retreat. From your luxury boutique hotel you can stroll down the longest, white sand beach on the island. It’s perfect for a spot of paddling in the shallow waters. Or simply relax, cocktail in hand, as you watch the sun set over an electric blue Aegean.
This serene resort has a powder-soft sandy beach that stretches as far as the eye can see
Things to do
A gentle westerly breeze and the calm, warm sea surrounding Kalo Livadi are ideal for swimming and snorkelling. There are also plenty of watersports to enjoy – from windsurfing and wakeboarding to pedal boats, canoes and jet skis. And with lots of sun loungers and straw umbrellas ready and waiting on the beach, finding somewhere to flop is easy.
Away from the Kalo Livadi beach bars and tavernas, lies a laid-back, rural community. Take a short drive out to Ano Mera to get a taste of life in one of the island’s oldest villages. Fiercely proud and traditional, its centuries-old charm can be felt everywhere. From its distinctive white cubic homesteads to the coffee shops filled with locals, sipping and chatting the day away.
Ano Mera is also home to the 18th-century monastery of Panagia Tourliani. Take a few moments to sit next to its elegant marble fountain in the courtyard before venturing into the museum. Here, you’ll discover various icons and trinkets from the Byzantine and Renaissance eras.
Don’t forget to bring your snorkelling mask. The crystal clear waters of Kalo Livadi are teeming with colourful fish.
