Contrary to its name, which means "a poor house or a favela", Paraga is actually one of the first clothes-optional beaches in Mykonos, made famous by the hippie generation in the 70’s and hugely popular ever since. A very picturesque spot with a mixed crowd, party atmosphere and a much-celebrated beach bar-restaurant where the music can get rather loud! The beach is sandy, the water is clear, there are umbrellas and sun beds available for rent and a shallow shoreline for children to play in. Around the beach, one can find rooms to let, hotels and apartments, as well as Mykonos Camping. Paraga beach can be reached by local bus service from Mykonos Town, by boat from Platis Gialos and Ornos, or by foot from Paradise Beach (only 10 minutes walk). Depending on the season, the local bus takes you directly to Paraga or you have to get off at the bus stop for Paradise beach and walk. Parking is free for customers of the taverna and the beach bar, the rest have the option of paying a fee at the private-owned parking area on the right side of the beach.
