    This place is AWESOME! It's a total scene from morning 'till night. The beach is pretty rocky, but you can rent a chair for the day. Don't e afraid to bargain low. They would ask for 4EUR/chair, and we would bargain down to 1.50 or 2. It's a bit more mellow until about 4 pm when the bar scene starts to pick up. The music starts playing and the dancers start dancing on the stage. We would stay at the beach until about 9, then go back to our hotel in town, get ready have dinner and then head back to the beach. There a public bus running every half an hour, which makes it very convenient getting to and from the beach.
    The drinks are kind of pricey, I would recommend getting bottle service, it's much cheaper and you know exactly what you're getting.

    Paradise Beach - People watching

    Upon our arrival to Mykonos, we immediatley met friends at the bar at Paradise Beach. The place was a total scene...I absolutley loved it. The crowd and visitors/locals are all good looking, and it's a great place to people watch. We sat under the umbrellas, got in the water, and just relaxed. There is great music on non stop, which really sets the vibe. The drinks were great, however the service isn't that great, and they don't seem very fond of Americans.

    We went up to the restaurant and ordered a plate of sashimi....it was an array of all different types, and probably some of the best sashimi I've ever had.

    We were actually sad to leave, and next time we visit Mykonos will be sure to go back to Paradise Beach...it was a great way to kick off our visit to Mykonos.

    If you plan on going to Paradise Beach, plan to stay the day and night. There are many beach parties that go on during the day that trail into the night. Most people do come to the beach later in the day to catch a couple of hours of sun to look beautifully tanned for the parties at night. Just walk up and down the beach and there's always something to do.

    Sunlovers at Paradise Beach

    Eye opening is probably my first impression of Paradise Beach. I don't know if it is quite 'paradise', but it certainly is a party! I entered the beach from the Paradise Beach Resort and Camping (the eastern end i think. I went up through some stairs and into a club (with disco ball and all!) and a small swimming pool - which a woman, topless was getting out of. A few people were on the day-beds to the side. I walked a bit further and saw the actual beach - umbrella covered and chairs (all for hire at 5 euro). Then i noticed just about man and woman there was either nude or topless! I went to the sand and laid out my towel and got 'dressed' for the part..which in this case was almost wearing nothing at all! I'm not comfortable going nude, but i stripped to a thong and spent the rest of the day like that. Ironically, although everyone was carefree and themselves nude, i felt there was more voyeurism there than a 'normal' beach in Europe. That said, it wasn't uncomfortably so - it's I guess, the same feeling you'd get at a night club.

    Paradise beach is a truly beautiful beach. You can take a bus from the town center or use a moped to get there. The texture of the beach is somewhere between sand and pebbles. The beach is covered with beach chairs for which you must pay 5 - 7 euros to use. If you brought your own towel the beach is free to use;) The water is a clear turquoise color, and you can see small fish swimming in it. It is one of the islands designated nude beaches and there were a few topless women there. The bars at the beach pump out dance music. There were several groups of people dancing and having a good time at the bar and it was only the afternoon when we got there.

    Not exactly paradise, but fun!

    It tastes so good once it hits your lips!!!

    The beach here is pebbly. There are also rocks underfoot just as you enter the sea. The water is clear and torquoise, and there are two rocks that you can wade out to for sitting on. There is also a place to the left side (looking out) where you can rent jet-skis. There are several bars one after another. I'm sure the party would be more hopping during the summer with more people.

    Club Cavo Paradiso is perched up on the rocky cliff.

    Beers are the same price as SuperP.

    Paradise Beach on the left.

    Paradise Beach is a notorious party spot in the Greek Isles, although it didn't live up to it's reputation when I visited. The texture of the beach is somewhere between sand and pebbles, but not quite either and it's almost entirely covered with beach chairs, which you must pay 3.5 - 7 euros (I don't exactly remember, but I think it was on the higher end) to use.
    There are a few bars at the beach which pump out dance tunes even when the place is less than half full. Despite what I heard, I saw no bartop dancing or widespread nudity and left Paradise Beach feeling somewhat cheated.

    Club Tropicana

    Paradaise Beach is the place you will see in Wild on E!
    People come here not only for the beach but for the parties. It is completely pack in summer time when and DJ's from all over the globe come.
    I met some nice people, the atmosphere is very chilled, and nothing beats dancing next to the ocean.

    This is the most popular beach that tourists go...

    Drinks at the beach is very expensive: I paid euro5 for a glass of local branded beer.
