It’s the second most famous beach on the island. Super Paradise beach is the most alternative and anti-conformist beach on the island. Virtually void of hotels, the exclusivity of Super Paradise beach has made it a favourite for mostly gay but also straight visitors to the island for many years. Nice pebbly sand and the waters are perfect for swimming. The hill side behind, the bamboo fence and the narrow mouth of the bay, provide some protection from the north wind. Super Paradise is for almost everyone who wants to have fun in the sun amidst an eclectic crowd, with or without your clothes. Relax early in the day, and then the music, and therefore the party, picks up in mid-afternoon and can become quite “the scene”. Whether dancing on the platforms around the pool or drinking under the shade of a group of trees, the beach takes on a club – like atmosphere.

This beach is surrounded by rocks and it is only 200m long, however it is covered by the finest sand in Greece. During the summer it is nearly impossible to find a free spot on Paranga beach. It is more laid back than the close-by Paradise beach and most people go there to enjoy a relaxing snooze or take a quiet dip. Paranga is more popular with the older crowds who may want to escape the endless partying on the nearby beaches.

The sandy beach of Kalafati is reputed as the longest beach on the island with its 900m coastline. Thanks to the remote location it is also a good place for a quiet swim. It’s prime wind prone position on the coast has made it a perfect wind surfing district. During the morning hours the wind blows at wind force 2 to 4 which provides good conditions for beginners. However during the afternoon wind forces reach up to 6, which is more ideal for the professional or advanced surfers. Further out the shore waves can tower up to a height of 2 to 4 meters.

Southeast from Ano Mera lies the 600m long curved bay of Kalo Livadi. During the early and post season you may be completely alone on the beach.

Kapari beach is a small paradise made up of crystal clear blue waters, bright white sand and large rock formations. Access to Kapari is harder than to any other beach in Mykonos, but it is totally worth it. You can get there by scooter or car, but you need to be careful because the road is full of potholes and there is no parking. Once you are there, you need to climb down the twenty-meter (70 foot) rocky pathway – and of course climb them again to return. We assure you it is definitely worth the trouble, especially on days with no strong winds
On the street to Ano Mera shortly after the second gas station diverges a narrow street that takes you to the bay of Panormos. The road also leads to the Lake of Marathi, an artificial storage-lake. At the end of the 6km road you find the curved bay of Panormos which is lined by sand dunes and with the length of 800m is one of the larger beaches on the island. Far at the right side is a narrow, fine sand stretch of beach with little alcoves scattered along the back side, in the low sand dunes, where you can sometimes find a bit of privacy. That side of the beach is undeveloped, without sun beds and umbrellas. Nudity is perfectly acceptable here. If you choose to stay on the left side of the beach near the beach bar- tavern that is located between a large, wild bamboo area and beautiful shade trees, you will find more activity, music, food, drinks and lovely atmosphere.

AGIOS SOSTIS BEACH
Unspoiled freedom, this clothing-optional beach is fairly undeveloped without amenities such as umbrellas, sun beds or beach bars. If you can do without those things, it is so worth the trip. Even the somewhat bumpy, pot – holed road should not be a deterrent, as you see the view from the road above, looking down on the beautiful beach. Take the primitive footpath and arrive there to find a stretch of sand and small pebbles, which make up this beach that slopes gently into the clear sea.
Enjoy your lunch with off roasted and grill dishes at Kiki’s old tavern, which works only lunchtimes. Parking is limited, but you can park on the road and walk down the hill. There is no bus service available.
