this is a fab small beach area with free loungers if you eat at Nicolas Taverna - which should not be missed - the restaurant has been in the same family since 1967 and is great with excellent service and good food.

Although there are sun loungers to hire there is plenty of space at the far end for nudist sunbathing. Plenty of places to eat but Tasos Taverna is recommended.

Small Paradise with everything on offer: Trekking opportunities up the cliffs, nice club / bar by the beach, blue water, awesome views... A place to unwind and let all your worries go! Loved the stunning views from top of the cliff 😍

Paranga beach is by far my favourite of all Mykonos' beaches. This has it all: a calm ocean, a relaxing atmosphere, sun beds and umbrellas, wait-staff to bring food and drink, and friendly staff and fellow patrons. My partner and I stumbled on this during our explorations of the island, and we loved it so much that we returned again!... More

This is a nice beach that's out of the way. There is a lot of hustle and bustle and loud music which is the main attraction. There is another part of the beach near a couple of tavernas which is more peaceful with only the music to be heard in the background. You can hire sunbeds on both these beaches,... More

This was better than Paradise. 12euros to just get rented sunbed even if you order food/drinks. There are enough places on beach for people not opting for sunbeds. There were lot of naturists around too.

Paranga is located right by Acrogiali hotel. We enjoyed laying out and ordering drinks from the bar. the sand is nice and not rocky like other Greek Beaches. Water is clear blue and sand is powdery white.

We had a lovely time there. Enough space for all kind of people and yet all that making you feel comfortable. And to ensure you stay longer, just go to the tavern and get a god food. Not the best of the island but good enough for lunch
