Mykonos Merchia beach

Information about Merchia beach

Merchia Beach in Mykonos: Merchia is located on the northeast part of Mykonos, 8 km away from Ano Mera Village. The beach is situated in a small bay and is ideal for travelers seeking the alternative side of Mykonos. It offers tranquility and seclusion from the crowds who visit the Cycladic island for its endless parties and extreme events.

Merchia Beach has a small, sandy coast with a few pebbles and clear blue waters, surrounded by little vegetation and a few picturesque houses that belong mostly to some fishermen. There are no umbrellas or sunbeds available, although you will find some salt cedars that offer shade if you haven't brought your umbrella especially during the hot summer days. In addition, given that the place is secluded with no taverns, restaurants or snack bars around, it is important to have water and food with you. However, keep in mind that access to Merchias is a bit difficult because you have to cross a dirt road in order to get to the beach, though it's totally worth it.

Moreover, within a short distance from the beach is the small chapel of Saint Nicholas, built on the rocks right by the sea. In addition to the church, close to Merchia, there are a lot of luxurious villas and residences for rent, but if you are interested in making a reservation in August, you will have to arrange your booking several months in advance due to high demand. Last but not least, visiting Merchias can also be combined with excursions to other beaches in the northeast tip of Mykonos, such as Fokos and Mersini.
