The beach like many others has several restaurants and bars to choose from All charge for the sun beds and umbrellas Quiet and private, if you wish to read a book, or take in the beautiful ocean. The waters are crystal clear, with water sports available if you choose

The first bar, right at the entrance of the beach offers chairs, tables and umbrellas without charging minimal fees like most of the others in Mykonos.

we went to Paranga beach for the first time this year and the experience was not so good...very expensive sunbeds (45-55 euros)......crowded.......the service is the worst on the island... we had to wait for 45 minutes for water and juices. I think is overpriced and there are a lot more beaches that you could go and have a good time.

The sun beds on this beach were really expensive when compared with others locally and within 30 minutes we saw several parties leave

Paranga to us is the best beach on Mykonos Island. The clear tourquise bay is just the right size for swimming and snorkeling. The services on the beach include beach-bed / umbrella rentals, a variety of eateries and pubs, rest rooms, parking, and a free beach with no facilities for those who don't want the beach-beds but rather to enjoy...

We took a water taxi to Paranga. Beautiful beach. Not very busy. Didnt want to spend €20 for a chair, so we sat at the end of the beach. Be warned - nudity was present. Mostly older folks. The beach is worth it to visit. There is a big rock about 200 yards offshore. Also when kids be bored of... More

Away from the crazy crowds, quaint and beautiful. Authentic restaurant on the beach. Later in the day, a fun club nearby

This beach is located in the end of the Gialos bay. Because the distance it is far from main gialos beach. Near you have two restaurants to eat and drink. The beach is rocky and ladies can do topless without any problem.

Always make this beach a must!!! But wow have things become expensive. Music builds up as the day progresses. Plenty of eye candy and people watching. Restaurants along the beach cater for all pocket types. If you're planning on a peak weekend best you make a reservation or you'll find yourself having to haggle to get a lounger. If you... More
