Paradise Beach

The most well-known of Mykonos' beaches, Paradise, is credited with bringing tourism to the island in the 1970s. Paradise Beach is a young party beach located 6 kilometres south of Mykonos Town and is accessible by bus, departing from the terminal of Fabrika. It is no longer the hippie beach of the 1970s, nor is it mostly gay like it was about a decade ago. Instead, it now draws young crowds who dance, drink and lie on the sand all day and night to the sound of music. The most popular beach clubs in the area are probably Tropicana and Cavo Paradiso, which attract famous DJs and party people from all over the globe.

Super Paradise Beach

Super Paradise is a small beach located 7 kilometres southeast of Mykonos Town. There are no direct buses to Super Paradise Beach, but small boats run from Platis Gialos and Paradise Beach towards it. It is considered Mykonos' most gay-friendly beach and boasts one of the most relaxing yet considerably affordable beach clubs, also named after the beach, Super Paradise Beach Club. Join the journey of authentic bohemian fun, and pamper yourself with delectable food options, sensational wines, and creative cocktails. Rent a sun lounger for the day and let the music enchant your senses.
