Paradise Beach for Party Life in Mykonos

Paradise Beach, located in the south of Mykonos, is the most famous and trendy beach on the island,

So it’s an excellent choice for accommodation in Mykonos if you’re looking to party! But yes, I admit, you might not actually get much sleep, or maybe you will, but during the day. 😅

Moreover, when daylight comes, the beach becomes peaceful again and the perfect spot for swimming in crystal-clear waters. There, you can also try a variety of water sports.

Paradise Beach is ideal for staying in Mykonos:

  • If you want to enjoy the lively nightlife
  • For a Mykonos trip with friends (what happens in Mykonos stays in Mykonos 😆).
