Mykonos Areas | Agios Lazaros
Mykonos, also known as the island of the winds, is located in the heart of the Cyclades and is one of the world-famous Greek islands, synonymous with cosmopolitanism and luxury holidays. Bright and airy in the daylight, charming and mysterious at night, Mykonos invites us to have fun, to dance in the beach bars and clubs, to shop in the luxury shops and art spaces, to experience unforgettable moments.
One such location in Mykonos is Agios Lazaros, a cozy enclosed neighborhood full of wonder and exciting attractions. Just a few kilometers away from Psarou, in the south of the island, Agios Lazaros is a small settlement with traditional white Cycladic houses, built in an amphitheatrical on the hill and enjoying a wonderful view of the Aegean.
The namesake mall beach of Agios Lazaros is located in the southern part of the island of Mykonos, just 5 km from Chora, the capital, and is known as a zen haven for relaxation and recharging of batteries. Despite its location, between the famous and crowded beaches of Psarrou, Platy Gialos, Paragas and Ornos, Agios Lazaros beach is ideal for those who prefer a place to relax close to Chora.
