Our favourite island is very popular among the surfing community. Why? Let’s not forget that it is also known as island of winds. Every summer, meltemi, the legendary strong wind passes by the Cycladic islands to say hello and Mykonos would be a different case. This perfect wind blows consistently, both speed and direction, so even if you are an amateur, you’ll have the perfect initiation.
The island’s weather conditions along with its superb beauty make it the ideal destination for exclusive holidays. Here are the best surfing beaches together with our picks for your stay in Mykonos luxury villas.
Ftelia is the northernmost beach of Mykonos island famous for its wind. Its clear waters make it a paradise for windsurfers and other swimmers as well. It is considered one of the calmest and peaceful beaches thanks to the wind which deters those who just prefer to sunbathe. Ftelia Beach offers various windsurfing centers that provide courses and rental equipment.

Korfos Beach has a superb position in the north side of the island that enhances the effect of the strong wind. Korfos beach has kind of shallow waters which is very helpful for beginners, but does not prevent the advanced ones to have the absolute experience. Most visitors take on kite surfing as well, since Kite Mykonos offers many choices. A bonus point is that between sessions you can try food and drinks as there are plenty of choices around to help you recharge.
