Families flock to the beaches of Psaroú and Órnos. Travelers looking for more tranquility head to beaches in the north of the island such as Ayios Stéfanos, Agrári and Kápari. If you're headed there this summer, you'll find fewer crowds in June. Travelers planning to head there in August: you should book your Mykonos accommodation now, as the island attracts more visitors later in the summer.
