A relatively small beach, Paraga (also often spelled "Paranga") is one of the island’s most popular, as it’s within walking distance of Paradise Beach, can be reached by bus, and is faced by a couple of good hotels. From here you can actually see the island of Delos in the distance. Although it doesn’t offer much space for privacy, nudism is quite common.
There are sunbeds by the bar (which plays loud music), and a mini market where you can grab snacks, water and beach items such as flip flops and sunscreen.
The waters are calm and crystal clear, and it's within walking distance (about 15 minutes) of Platys Gialos Beach. Before reaching it you pass by Agia Anna, and a few minutes later you arrive at Psarou.
How to Get to Paraga Beach
Paraga is perhaps the southernmost beach on the island, and can easily be reached by bus in 15 minutes from Mykonos Town (departing from the Fabrika bus station).

Just down the street from Paraga Beach (and a short walk up a cliff from Paradise Beach), this design hotel is found on a scenic location and has spacious rooms spread over a group of whitewashed buildings. It offers a good breakfast and several spots for you to sit in the sun, from the rooms' balconies or patios, to the attractive pool area.
Facing the beach and the bus terminal that links you to Mykonos Town, this hotel has different types of rooms which accommodate different types of guests, from couples and friends, to families.
