Nude Beach Island-hopping from Mykonos

gay popular nudist beach on Naxos

Mykonos is without doubt the centre of Greek gay universe. But there are many gay travellers who love to combine the party island with something quieter and, let’s be honest, less expensive.

So why not try a bit of nude beach island-hopping? Check out these nearby islands.


Langeri Beach – Paros

Parosis is 35 minutes from Mykonos by Catamaran, and is an island preferred by younger Greeks.

Rather than the capital Paroikia, head for the resort town of Naoussa. Nearby is Langeri, the island’s prime nudist beach. This may be one of the best nudist beaches in Greece: golden sand, green-blue clear waters and many naked swimmers. The dunes at the southern end of the beach attracts plenty of men. Discreet action is possible.


Plaka Beach – Naxos

Finding-your-way-on-NaxosOnly 45 minutes by catamaran from Mykonos is Naxos, an island which is becoming more and more hip. The coast below the port is one long sandy beach divided in sections by rocky headlands.

Head for Plaka beach (just beyond the Three Brothers taverna) nicknamed Hawaii because of its scenery and deep blue water. This stretch of beach is big and the nude and gay-nude sections change year by year. Thankfully, it’s signposted.



Armeos Beach – Syros

Just over an hour from Mykonos is Syros, the administrative centre of the Cyclades with a spectacular Italian-looking capital. The official nudist beach, Armeos is next to the resort of Galissa. Because it is official, the small pebble beach of Armeos is surprisingly busy.

Syros is one of the few islands with a large permanent all-year population. It’s not on the gay tourist routes, so you’ll find the local gay men on Armeos keen to make contact.

Kambí Beach – Amorgos

Two hours by ferry from Mykonos is Amorgos, an island made famous by director Luc Besson who filmed “The Big Blue” there. From Chora, the capital, head to Agia Anna, the closest beach, which is well signposted. Instead of heading to the beach under the small church, walk over a rocky path to the next bay south, called Kambí. You’ll find plenty of nudists and gay swimmers. What the beach lacks in facilities it makes up in crystal clear water.


Dellavoyas Beach – Andros

Two-and-a-half hours on the ferry back to Piraeus lies Andros, a relatively green island with several top beaches. Near the main resort of Batsi is the sandy beach of Dellavoyas, five minutes’ walk from Anerousa hotel.  Nudism is practised extensively on this beach.  Popular with Scandinavians and Brits.


Koloumbos Beach – Santorini

Three hours from Mykonos by fast ferry is the stunningly beautiful island of  Santorini. You need a car to get to Koloumbos beach, 8.5 km from the capital, Fira. Follow the sign to Baxedes and continue south towards taverna Soulis. When you reach the beach, walk 100m further to the left to reach the gay popular section.

An easier nudist beach to get to is Vlychada. This is reached either from the resort of Perivolos on foot or by bus. Because it’s easy to access, it’s more straight. Still, the “Swiss cheese cliffs” behind make the experience worthwhile.
