Ano Mera Mykonos

 

 

The peaceful rural setting of Ano Mera village serves as a contrast to the busier Chora, and offers easy access to some of the island’s beautiful beaches, such as Elia, Kalo Livadi, Kalafatis and Agia Anna Kalafatis.

There are various accommodation options for tourists who would like to spend a few days in Ano Mera and explore the island from there. Or a visit to the village can be included in an island tour, which Mykonos Dream Travel will arrange according to your requirements.
