Where the party never stops PARADISE!

Every time I bring my friends to Mykonos there is one place I can't help but take them!!!
SUPER PARADISE AND PARADISE BEACH!!
I suggest these are done separately, not both in one day, this is mainly if you plan to stay back and party as they open into an outdoor club/bar around 5PM (sometimes earlier) They do also have excellent beaches for sunbathing and again have well respectable crowds, you sometimes find people come to enjoy the beach and leave before it gets crazy!!
Super Paradise is on the south coast, right next door to Paradise Beach. The sunbeds are around 6 EURO to rent (again they normally do 12 EURO for two with an umbrella) it has a gift shop, mini market, atm and internet (there is a camping site/accommodation close by) they also have this great restaurant diner that you serve yourself - sort of like a buffet thing where you pick what you want - full of variety:)
Super Paradise is really known for its BIG gay community, you can get here via bus and taxi - they also have a taxi-boat service from Platis Yialos.
Paradise Beach now this is where ALL the action begins...you may have heard of the famous TROPICANA BAR!!! this place rocks, but be warned after 5PM it turns into a full on crazy beach bar - Contiki Groups, Italian stallions (hahaha) you name it EVERYONE comes here to do one thing...PARTY!!!
They have VIP tables, where you pay big for bottles of alcohol - 80 EURO for a 1 litre bottle of vodka, they bring out all the orange juice and ice you need and you sit on these tables in front of the DJ/commentator SASA (Italian guy in the freaky G-String in everyone's pix) and watch the podium dances – by the end of the night everyone has taken over your table and you have shared one too many drinks with people….
Anyway if you are going to Mykonos for the party scene this is it – one not to be missed and nor to forget so please remember to bring your camera and video if you can! Some things will blow your mindJ
If you have ever looked up Mykonos on YouTube you will find most video footage has been taken at Tropicana Bar – some good and some not so good! Try not to get yourself filmed if you choose to do something stupid, because trust me it will end up on YouTube (no this is not from experience)
Paradise Beach is also where CAVO and PARADISE CLUB are located so you find many young tourists camp and stay out here as all the entertainment and nightlife is one spot.
Paradise beach is located between Paranga Beach and Super Paradise Beach and is reachable by a footpath from Platis Yialos, by bus or by taxi-boat. At night Paradise Club actually has its own bus service from town.
The beach it’s self is flat, not many rocks and it has crystal clear waters. They also have water sport facilities and a diving centre. The sunbeds to hire are 8 EURO and offer the same deals with an umbrella. They have food and drink services which come to you, as with all the other beaches…I will say they have some funky areas to chill – big bean bags, little restaurants lined along the beach and the music is very trendy, mostly what’s being played in all the nightclubs throughout Europe.
