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.
Party all hours
At Paradise Beach – a Mykonos institution – you can party all day and long into the night. Try to catch one of the big-name DJs who headline here.
Paraga is a bit of a see-and-be-seen type of place – fabulous for sipping a fruity cocktail while watching your fellow travellers strut along the beach.
Paraga isn’t huge, so if it gets a little busy, take a stroll to Agia Anna, Platis Gialos or Psarou – all within a 15-minute walk.
