Houlakia Mykonos: The pebble stones is a characteristic feature of this beach known as Houlakia. This lovely beach is located 6 km north of Mykonos Town and it is divided in two parts. The left side has a small cove and a small sandy spot. The right side is full of large pebbles. The place offers an amazing sunset and wonderful scenery due to this natural phenomenon.
It is a protected area therefore it is not recommended for swimming except from the small cove behind the rocky shoreline but you can also visit the beach to admire the beauty of this idyllic location and the houses built on the beachfront despite the strong winds. Houlakia beach is accessible by car or motorbike where there is a small parking area.
There are many different ways to get to Houlakia from any location on the island.
Airport to Houlakia: 7.5 km / 4.6 miles | New Port to Houlakia: 3.2 km / 1.9 miles | Town to Houlakia: 6 km / 3.7 miles
Tours: Discover Houlakia with an organized tour of Mykonos, starting from 69€.
Private transfers: We recommend using an online pre-booked Mykonos transfer service, which provides transfer by taxi, minibus or private VIP car and arranging a pickup directly from the port, airport or your hotel. Alternatively, there’s the option of arranging a pickup by a local driver directly at the following numbers: 0030 694 559 7854, 0030 22890 22400 or book your taxi online.
Car rental: Τhere’s the option of renting a car in Mykonos with as little as 10 euros per day and pick it up directly from the airport, port or your hotel. Using a car rental allows visitors to discover Houlakia beach and many other places of interest in Mykonos at their own pace.
Public transfers: Agios Stefanos is located close to Houlakia beach (20-minute walk). In Agios Stefanos lies the terminal of the bus route Tourlos (New Port) > Agios Stefanos. There are several buses from Tourlos (where the new port is located) to Agios Stefanos during the day. Consider that time schedules might change according to the season. Check the official timetables here.
From Mykonos airport to Houlakia: There’s a bus station outside the airport’s main terminal building. The bus route Airport > New Port (approximately every 1.5 hours) takes visitors to the New Port (terminal stop). From the New Port, visitors should take another bus to reach Houlakia, following the route Tourlos > Agios Stefanos.
From Mykonos new port (in Tourlos) to Houlakia: The bus station is located at the new port of Mykonos, a 3-minute walk away from the passenger disembarkation area. From there, visitors who have arrived by ferry to Mykonos can reach Houlakia, following the route Tourlos > Agios Stefanos.
Tip: Since buses don’t always stop in every scheduled stop of their itinerary, our advice to visitors is to inform the driver about their final destination, so that he makes a stop there.
