Mykonos Areas | Agios Sostis
What can one say about this beautiful area? A sandbar where the brown of the lava blends with the gold of the sand, a bay that is licked by the gentle caress of the Aegean, a neighborhood that is hidden within pink oleander trees and vernacular cycladic homes of traditional history.
The otherworldly beaches and their high profile bars, suitable for swimming, relaxing and windsurfing, are located in the northern part of the area, holding a one of a kind charm in the bay of Panormos.
Among the most ideal destinations for peace, tranquility and seclusion in Mykonos, Agios Sostis features waters that shine with a deep, rich blue color, contrasting to the clear turquoise that “paints” the rest of the coast. Apart from the only tavern at the entrance of Agios Sostis (Taverna tis Kiki), the beach is charmingly isolated from the rest of the island, so make sure to bring your own towel, sunscreen, a good book, and stock up on water or snacks.
Indeed, Agios Sostis is among the beaches of Mykonos where the natural environment is almost untouched and unspoiled, where nature thrives in spite of human activity, offering a most singular opportunity to witness virgin natural beauty. Agios Sostis beach is accessible by car or motorbike and there is no public transport in this area. It is 7.5 kilometers from Chora and the journey takes approximately 16 minutes.
Where to stay
Serene Agios Sostis has a lot to offer, however, to fully take in all of the grandeur and natural majesty, you’ll require a cozy and comfy HQ. Villa Adele is a 6-bedroom luxury resort, able to accommodate up to 13 guests. Situated near the marvelous golden sands of Agios Sostis beach, famous for its lush nature and cobalt waters, the villa enjoys a privileged position with extensive sea view over the Aegean Sea and the northern coast of the island, which unveils the true beauty of Mykonos’ original landscapes.
Where to eat
Discard your cares at Agios Sostis, and be prepared to engage in some seriously gourmet dishes, as the restaurants and bars on this side of the island are famously “geared” towards culinary excess. “Dive” into an assortment of aromas and tastes at Aperanto Galazio Cuisine bar, which translates to “Eternal Blue”, a name aptly given, as you will enjoy your meals and brunches while basking at the penciled horizon of a cobalt Aegean. To the north, visit Matios tavern for good ol’ fashioned traditional Greek cuisine, “caressed” with virgin olive oil and oregano. Finally, you can’t go without trying the meatballs and moussaka of Kiki’s Tavern, a family restaurant that has dedicated guests and patrons all over the world.
Where to have fun
Souvlaki during daytime and cold refreshments during nighttime: Kalosta restaurant and bar in Agios Sostis is a literal “life saver” when it comes to finding a place to enjoy ambient music and mouth watering horderves with your spirits and cocktails. Delicious Greek recipes blend with modern touches of inspirational genius to create a truly innovative food venue.
