Lia, at 10 km from Mykonos Chora, is perhaps one of the more distant and difficult to access beaches in Mykonos, but definitely worth the trouble for the feeling of peace and relaxation you will enjoy there. If you're already at Kalafatis beach, just walk right over. It's a perfect spot for the solitary-seeking visitor, yet equally ideal for groups of friends, couples and families looking for a bit of exclusivity. Protected by the summer winds, the clear deep waters of the sandy bay are a great option for those who wish to relax comfortably under an umbrella with a sun bed. Be sure to visit the two seafood taverns that serve up great dishes to indulge over. This area has become quite residential with many newly built villas to rent and private houses.
