Tigani Beach in Mykonos: On the northeast tip of Mykonos lie the beaches of Pano and Kato Tigani. They are located 14 km from Chora, in the area of Profitis Ilias, and overlook Tragonisi, a tiny island on the Aegean Sea with enchanting sea caves. Both Pano and Kato Tigani are secluded, surrounded by a rocky landscape with little vegetation and no houses around. The waters are blue, cold, and crystal-clear, while their coast has coarse golden sand. By dint of their secluded location, very few people visit them compared to the most popular beaches of Mykonos, such as Super Paradise, Paradise, and Elia, which attract thousands of tourists each year.
