Holidays in
Paraga

A fun-filled party spot in Mykonos

Paraga has two distinct personalities – the southern stretch of beach is laid-back, while the northern side has a party vibe – so Paraga holidays suit all types of beach lover. Cool bars and restaurants serving food, drink and good vibes on the sand have made Paraga one of the most popular resorts on Mykonos. And frequent taxi-boats ferry sun-and-fun seekers from Paraga to Paradise Beach – even livelier, and another of the island’s ultra-hip party spots.

It’s not all about socialising though, and activity seekers will enjoy the crystal-clear sea. The boldest can swim out to a rock formation just a few metres from the shore, where daring youngsters take turns diving into the shimmering water. Then there’s the phenomenal view over the islands of Naxos and Paros, framed by a flaming sunset. Holidays to Paraga offer a buzzing Greek island paradise at its best.

Your Paraga questions, answered

Paraga is just 6 kilometres south of Mykonos Town, 15 minutes by bus. Want to travel in style? Hop on the water taxi from Platis Gialos beach.

The calm, shallow water is perfect for swimming. If you fancy some thrills you can have a go at jet skiing, surfing, yachting, diving or windsurfing.

July and August are when the beats are at their best and parties are in full swing. Visit outside high season if you like things a bit quieter.
