80% of beach is organised. The other 20% is sand but I literally scooped up handfuls of cigarette ends to clear a space for us to sit. Gross. We won't say long. The view if the bay is nice. Sea is a bit rocky so be careful when you try and walk in for a swim. Very shallow so my... More

This was the nearest beach to our hotel but we preferred to walk further to Platys Gialos. The beach was packed with 20'somethings, lovely and quiet in the morning but got progressively louder and busier as the day wore on. Probably not as lively as Paradise, but be aware it isn't exactly quiet either. Very little spare sand to sit... More

A bit more laid back than Paradise and Super Paradise - the food is good and there is plenty of variety ( well Greek variety ) to choose from. Have a couple of cocktails as the evening comes around, watch the sunset and go home ready to go into town.

Paranga has been a favourite destination for some years as a beach which struck a nice balance between stylish and alternative, however that is changing and not for the better. Greed has also set in with prices for sun beds etc going up year after year.

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.

Took the time out to walk here to find an awful stoney beach. The man wanted €50 for a dumbed which is extortionate! We declined and walked along the beach to find somewhere else. The smell is disgusting and the hostel was noisey and very dirty looking. The sea was full of rocks so no bathing. Definitely looks better in... More

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.
