The most famous beach of Mykonos, Paradise, is found at a distance of 6 klm far from Chora, at the southeast, between Paraga and Super Paradise. The beach has begun to establish its fame in mid 60’s, when the hippys, its first visitors, have found their paradise in this extended sandy beach. It used to be and still is the legendary beach of nudists.
Nudists or not, the numerous visitors of the beach can enjoy sun and sea, along with high level services and various facilities. As everywhere in Mykonos, bars with loud music, taverns, beach bars and cafes, sea sport facilities and a scuba diving school are available. With such a noise and movement there is always the atmosphere of a continuous party.
Paradise has also a well established camping with sea sport facilities, post and exchange service. On the hill above the beach, Cavo Paradiso, a big center with various activities, with a pool, a cafe and a restaurant is another choice for amusement.
The beach has a very good connection with Chora by public bus, also caiques from Platys Ghialos will sail you here.
Situated at a distance of 6-7 klm southeast of Chora, very close to Paradise at the east, Super Paradise is rather isolated. This sandy beach with the deep, transparent blue water has been the choice of gays since many years. The beach is tolerant to nudists as well.
Although there are few accommodation facilities, the beach offers various alternatives for amusement and bars are, here too, active all day round. Less organized and established than the nearby Paradise, it is very frequented, perhaps because it is considered more isolated and closer to nature; also because it is one of the most famous beaches tolerant to gays in the Mediterranean.
Access to the beach is possible only privately; there is no bus connection. Taxis, cars and motorbikes can drive the visitor to the beach; caiques from Platys Ghialos are another alternative, as well as walking from Paradise.
