“Fun/Funky Beach”
Reviewed October 4, 2013

This beach was a bit off the beaten path but close enough to walk from the hotel. Half the beach is nude old people, the other half was young people (with bathing suits). The music playing was really cool and made it more a party (but not techno) vibe. The water was beautiful but there are fish that bite! They aren't really painful but its annoying that you can't stand still or they will get you. Had lunch in one of the restaurants on the beach, really good, but the name escapes me. Spent a good 5 hours here and really enjoyed the scene.

“Great Beach”
Reviewed October 3, 2013

This is a great beach. Tassos is great for lunch or have drinks and food at Kalhua beach club. Free parking behind the beach club or behind the end of the beach at "Damis' place". If you go to the end great area to put your towel down. This is a great beach. Something for everyone!

“This is a gorgeous beach away from the windy side of Mykonos.”
Reviewed September 29, 2013

Paranga beach is easy to get to by public bus from Mykonos town. It's protected from the wind, and the water is crystal clear and beautiful for swimming. I arrived early when it wasn't too crowded, and hired a cheaper lilo for 5 euros. The other option was 18euros for the padded ones - too expensive! Only stayed a few hours - by 11am the beach was full of families and rowdy kids, so the serene atmosphere vanished quickly. Still it was most enjoyable.

“Great Swim Beach”
Reviewed September 28, 2013

Another beautiful beach in Mykonos with comfortable lounge chairs, cute umbrellas and crystal blue water. 18 Euros for two front row beach chairs. Great swim beach with white sand. We ate at the beautiful Kalua Beach Club. The lamb and calamari were delicious! We visited in September, which the locals said is the perfect time to visit for beautiful weather without the crowds.
