Super Paradise Beach, Mykonos
No visit to Mykonos would be complete without even a short visit to Super Paradise Beach. We were there in the off season and relatively early in the morning as well, so we had the beach just about all to ourselves. Not that we had come to do any nude sunbathing mind you. We just wanted to see the place for ourselves and I must admit we were quite taken with it.
The best way to get to Super Paradise, I'm told is by ferry and even though I didn't do that, I would be inclined to agree because to drive there means a very very steep hill which is winding and very narrow, Only the most experienced drivers would not find it difficult driving on this road. I don't know what we would have done if another car had come in the opposite direction. Thank God, I wasn't driving because I had to keep my eyes shut tight all the way down and up. My friend seemed to take it all in his stride and didn't see what I was making such a fuss about, but then he's got nerves of steel when he's driving which is something I don't.
Once there, it is quite a delightful beach and the bar/restaurant/boutique and amenities area are most attractive. I believe that although this is usually known as a gay beach, it is well frequented by all persuasions these days.
We arrived at Super Paradise driving down a very nasty slope and I saw a golden sand, maybe the most beautiful in all Cyclades and a stunning water... My husband saw instead a lot of naked men, read on the Routard that it's the beach preferred from gay people so... we had to turn back, no way!!! He did'n want to stay!!! Wonderful place but only for people without prejudices...
The absolute party beach.Loud music people drink and drink and mainly drink... and dance... everywhere over the rocks, on the beach, in beach bar's pool... its the absolute party... all this after 3.00pm...
This is the time i usually leave.Super is a fantastic beach.If you get there at 11.00am or at 12.00pm you will probably wonder which sunbed to catch.Near the rocks or in the middle of the beach? First row to be close to beach, or on the lasts to be close to the bar?For sure you will find only 2-3 couples, 1-2families with children(?!) by that time and thats all... If you like the party stay till late.if not take your towels and get to another beach.Mykonos has more than 20 perfect sandy beaches...
I like this one as my morning choise! Trust me and you will be happy.
Lastly take one more tip! Next to the bar is a restaurant-self service...Usually beers there, are a little cheaper than in bar...
Super Paradise beach is nicer than Paradise beach in my opinion when comparing the sand...err, pebbles. They're smaller, and it's more like sand. However, there is no big rock that you can swim out to and lay on like there is at Paradise. The water is clear and has a nice torquise color.
The beach only has one bar, but its setup is cooler than the ones at Paradise Beach. The party really got cranking here around 5:30 in the afternoon. A bottle of Corona was 5euro. Amstel and Heineken are like 2 or 3.
The DJ here played some awesome music as well.
