The pebble stones is a characteristic feature of this beach known as Houlakia. This lovely beach is located 4 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.
