    Paraga beach today!
    We were here in june 2017. The beach beds were very expensive: 50 euros was no exception. Behind the beach very noisy works are going on. They are building an pool landscape. I wanted to go on the rocks, but was stopped by security men from the overvalued Skorpios, who ordered me to go back. This is a public way, what is wrong? This beach has changed from very attractive to avoidable. This is the new Mykonian style, we suppose. As long as it lasts...

    More relaxing environment
    I won't say this is an excellent beach but yes, it's nice. It is tolerant to nudists also, not full nudism. The one thing I liked about Paraga beach is the located against a picturesque landscape... I just hired a deckchair and with a bottle of beer in hand, chilled out with my friends! The beach is a little small but they do have some water sports. There is a number of beach bars. I really enjoyed the music at one of them and used to sit there in the evenings and watch the beautiful sunset. This beach is good if you just want to relax... which is exactly what I wanted to do! Not that busy as Psarou or Super Paradise, a more relaxing environment!

    Young people screaming songs
    We went to Paranga by bus, which was very unconfortable as the bus was too crowded. I really think more buses should be put to all beaches of Mykonos or at least itineraries should be more frequent to serve tourists better. There were many swimmers in Paranga in late May, mostly university students who had come for excursion to Mykonosand a few youngsters from abroad. Loud music was heard from the beach bars and the sea was almost packed with sun-tanned bodies who were almost screaming the lyrics of the songs. The atmosphere was funny and lively, I liked a lot that crazy vibe! I am in my middle age but I felt rejuvenated among so many young people.
