Many people flock to Mykonos for two reasons: beaches and parties. A trip to the southern coast and Paradise Beach — Mykonos' original nudist beach — will kill two birds with one stone. Soft sands, azure seas and a rowdy atmosphere have made Paradise one of the most popular places on the island. Paradise has become more developed over the past few years and now features a nearby strip of resort hotels, restaurants and beloved carousing spots like the Tropicana Beach Bar and Cavo Paradiso Club. If you're not one for built-up beaches, head east along the coast to the Super Paradise Beach; although it lacks many of the amenities, the party scene attracts barely clothed bathers and a large portion of Mykonos' LGBT community.

Paradise Beach sits about 2 miles south of Chora and can be reached on foot or by bus or boat. The beach is open 24/7 and you don't have to pay to lounge. However, you may want to bring some euros with you just in case your glass runs dry.

This Chora neighborhood is known as one of the most stunning places on the island. Overlooking the southwest end of the harbor, it was here that many early ship captains decided to settle down and built uniquely magnificent homes overlooking the sea. Today, many of these historic homes have been transformed into a variety of cozy restaurants, bars, shops and nightclubs, making this a bustling place at all hours of the day.
