About
Mykonos is synonymous with beaches and parties. At Paradise Beach, you can get your fill of both. During the day, you can chill by the beach or spend time on water activities such as banana boat rides and jet ski jaunts. Several scuba diving excursions and beach-hopping tours also set off from here. Come late afternoon, the buzzing party atmosphere kicks in as bars and clubs welcome party lovers until sunrise. If you plan to come by car, it’s about a 20-minute drive from Mykonos town. For a unique experience, ride a water taxi from Platis Gialos beach to get here. – Tripadvisor

    paradise beach was enjoyable.
    Visited here with my girlfriend on our summer vacation in mykonos. We took the bus from mykonos to the beach. That was the least expensive option and easy and convenient. the beach is pricy. chairs, drinks, etc but we were on vacation and willing to shell out the cash. The beach is beautiful, the water is fabulous. Overall, I enjoyed it. If your traveling on a budget, you might want to pass on this. My and my girlfriend dropped about $200 on the beach and drinks in one day.

    Noing to see off season
    Our tour took us here at end of April. A couple of die hards were lying out on the beach and one was in the water but it is off season. There is not much here to do in the off season. There is a big nice bar. I can image this being the hot summer spot.

    Beach with very nice views of landmarks
    The beach was very serene. It was early in the day on a Sunday so not much going on. The beach was clean but not like US beaches with sand, it is very small gravel pieces. We picked up a few rocks as mementos, but they were confiscated when we tried to board our cruise ship :( My son wanted a seashell to bring back home, nothing found, just the gravel.

    Lots of sea glass to find
    We accessed the beach by car. There was a nice big parking lot. You have to pay to sit on the beach chairs. The servers were really nice. The sand is decent – a little pebbly. There is snorkeling access from the shore and we saw some fish. There is a lot of sea glass in the area to find. We enjoyed this beach.

    Getting the Bus from Mykonos Town to Paradise Beach
    Paradise Beach has a big reputation as a party beach but during the day, it’s just a beautiful beach with a long curved stretch of sand, crystal clear water and gently lapping waves. It has a lively, fun atmosphere bit wasn’t raucous or unpleasantly noisy. It’s very crowded and the sunbeds dominate the beach so that there's very little free space. Sunbeds stretch right down to almost the water’s edge and there is only the smallest wedge of free space left beside the rocks on the right hand side of the beach. Sunbeds were €30 for a pair which seemed pretty reasonable but it was a bit too congested for us so we decided to continue on to Paraga Beach instead, which is only a short 10-15 minute walk over the headland. The path to Paraga starts with a set of stairs at the far right end of the beach (as you look at the water). Even if you’re staying at Paradise for the day, it’s worth walking up the stairs because they also lead to a beautiful viewing point, where you can look right down the length of the Paradise. GETTING TO PARADISE BY BUS: It was incredibly easy to get to Paradise Beach by bus from Mykonos town. We caught the bus from Fabrika Square in Mykonos’ old town. It is pretty chaotic here but the buses have a sign listing all of their stops in the front windscreen. Once we realised that, it was much easier to find our bus. We were told that you had to buy tickets at the small ticket office (cash only) first. However we noticed that other people paid as they got on the bus and this didn’t seem to be a problem. Don’t expect to get much help from the ticket office - they were completely disinterested and seemed to resent any questions. In contrast the bus drivers were very helpful so it’s best to stick your head into one of the buses and ask them directly. The trip took about 15 minutes and was €2.60 one way. The Paradise stop is the last one and we got off at a minimart. It wasn’t immediately obvious where to go so we simply crossed the road and followed a couple of people through what looked like a housing or holiday complex until we came to the beach club entrance. Buses to and from the old town are reasonably regular.

Ridiculously expensive sun beds! Euros 60 for a front line sunbed! I guess some people pay it!
The water is beautiful but the sand is like builders grit!

Very disappointed with a trip to paradise today, stopped at the entrance and bags searched for food and drink - we decided to go to paraga just round the corner out of principle - of course you already know about the sunbeds ? 50 each so 200 a day for 4 - plenty of other beaches in Mykonos sunbeds a nightmare but at least you don’t get searched !!!!

Overcrowded with way to many Sunbed’s that are crazy expensive. Also there are many creatures/rocks in the sea here that are stinging people. The sand is very gritty and not nice underfoot.

We usually come every week to the paradise beach, good location and staff, also the happy hour about cocktail is a good deal. I give just a a star because the reception is the worst things ever, you can’t say to the guest 5 minutes before you have taxi and after few minutes no more and is our business how to come back, people make plan to go to work and we risk to lose our ship and our job because a really rude madame doesn’t want do her job, this destroyed our experience absolutely. Good place bad desk service

There was something in the water that gave us a skin rash, but we saw no warnings. It felt as if I had scratched my knee. The beach personnel were attentive to help. They told us it was jelly fish, assured us it was not serious, and gave us gel (fenistil). The rash mostly went away after a few hours for me and my teen daughter. Still, not an experience I would have chosen for a dream vacation.

Avoid this money trap....there are many better free beaches to visit. This was our first time in Greece so we wanted to experience everything..South Miami Beach theme, they charge you for everything...The front entrance Guard searched our bags and took our bags of chips and bottled water, he left us with our fruits...no outside foods are allowed
...70Euros for 2 beach chairs and umbrella, towel rental was 20Euro per. with a 15 Euro give back when you returned towels. There were people getting red rashes from the ROCK BARGE AREA in water from touching...the lifeguard was applying ointment on people after they exited water...we spoke to lifeguard and he said Rock barge has seaweed type plants that affects some people when touched..crazy...At 4pm they put reservesigns on all the tables to make it seem exclusive. Then DJ plays loud music and roams the crowd..Food was average at best ....

In July 2023 we visited Paradise beach on Myconos. We arrived on our own without a tour, by ferry.
We wanted to swim, but not sunbathe as it was very hot and we want to spend on the beach time from 11-15 o'clock.
Renting an umbrella and two sunbeds for two people on the beach cost 70 euros. When we rented an umbrella, I noticed that the shadow from the umbrella covers only one sunbed. There was not enough shade on the second sunbed, because the sun was at its zenith. The beach boy said the shade would be longer in the late afternoon, but we wanted to wait out the afternoon sun and needed shade for two sunbeds. Us a result, we had to pay 70 euros for one sunbed with shade for 3,5 hours.

When we settled down, a girl from the bar came up and offered to order some drinks. We got acquainted with the menu and refused, as the price of drinks was quite high.
Then she said that we are obliged to buy drinks or food for 60 euros for two.
We asked where such a duty came from? We did not see the relevant information anywhere (there was no notice board, no papers with a rules or something else). These conditions (to spend 60 eur for drinks) were presented to us after the fact.
We were approached by a threatening-looking security guard who pretended not to understand English, but who by all appearances showed that we were obliged to make the appropriate purchase.

The name of the company providing sunbads on the Paradise beach was Tropicana.

I consider myself deceived and want to warn other people about Paradise beach and Tropicana company.
