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

We walked to this beach and it looked really lovely. If you are prudish, you may wish to go elsewhere or avert your eyes as this is the "hippie beach" we were told. ;-)

Loved this beach! It was a nice walk every morning from our little hotel in Platys Gialos but worth it. It was a very chilled out beach which was a combination of "organised beach" (e.g. sun longers and umbrellas to rent) and an area at the far end where people just had towels on the sand. It was a mix... More

This is a nice beach and is very crowded especially from locals tha seem to prefer it. Its wiser to book sunbeds days before in the summer as it is the only way ti find any in high season.

The waiters people are caught and deceived. Cheat good people in the company of the bad faith of the manager and the cashier and waiters.
