Where are the Parties in Mykonos?

So, let’s see the best beach party places in Mykonos:
Mykonos – Best Beach Clubs
Nammos Beach Bar at Psarou Beach
Nammos beach bar is located in Psarou beach and is the
Nammos has a restaurant and also offers sunbeds. This is not a low-key place. This is the place to see and be seen and to pay a lot to party during the day. Keep in mind that parking costs 20 euros and if you want to leave your car on the street that leads to Nammos so that you don’t have to pay for parking, you will leave it up to the hill and will have to walk down (and then up the hill), in the hot summer.
Two sunbeds here will cost you 120 euros and expect to pay at least 60 euros per person in the restaurant. An expensive place that gets overcrowded during August and you may need to wait a long time to get served, seated on your table or to find a sunbed. Be prepared.
Kalua Beach Bar at Paraga Beach
Kalua Beach bar is located in the beautiful sandy beach of Paraga. The sunbed costs 30 euros per person. During July and August you have to be early on the beach (i.e. before 11 am), to find a sunbed without reservation. It has great food and music and a decent, good-looking crowd. Kalua is an expensive place and if you want some more traditional Greek food, you can go to Tasos tavern, which is on the same beach. This place is chill until 17:00 and then the music gets more upbeat and there is a party atmosphere with dancing.
Scorpios Beach Bar at Paraga Beach
Scorpios Beach Bar, is located in Paraga beach. The food, the music and the service are excellent and it is a place you can enjoy as a single, couple or family. Make sure you do a reservation for the sunbeds before going, especially in July and August. Music is usually trance and not the popular chart hits. One of the good points about Scorpios is that it is located in a spot from which you can enjoy some great sunset views.
Beers here start at 9 euros and the bottles of alcohol start at 100 euros. The cocktails are at 19 euros and simple drinks at 15 euros (e.g. for a Vodka). The whole atmosphere is “boho-chic”, like being in a courtyard next to the beach. If you try to make a reservation some weeks before you go, you will most probably be pushed to pay 200 euros for a cabana. The restaurant here is upper class, with great but expensive food.
Tropicana Beach Bar at Paradise Beach
Below you can have a look at the atmosphere in Tropicana (the guy with the red swimming suit is Sasa-The King of Mykonos).
The Tropicana beach bar is at Paradise beach. Keep in mind that Paradise beach is different than the Super Paradise beach. Close, but not the same. This is a place frequented by a younger population compared to Principote and Scorpios and is considerably cheaper. It is not as “chic” as the high luxurious beach bars of the island and it has a more regular partying atmosphere.
One of the big attractions here is the guy who does the MC, under the name Sasa – he is a real character, wearing strange swimming suits and teasing everyone. Everything here is calm until 16:00 and then the party starts and it usually ends at 02:00 during July and August. In all the other months, things are quieter. If you are in your early twenties it’s an ok place to go. There is no particular quality in food and drinks here – usually, the drinks are watered down. Mojitos are at 14 euros.
Super Paradise Beach Bar at Super Paradise Beach
The Super Paradise beach is a long, sandy beach with clear waters and it is far better than Paradise beach, which is close. Here, you will find the Super Paradise Beach bar, which is one of the oldest beach bars on the island. The sunbeds cost 50 euros in the front row, 40 euros in the second row and 30 euros after the third row, for two persons.
If you want extra towels, it will cost an additional 5 euros. To find a sunbed in July and August, you will need to come here early, i.e. before 12 AM. The party here starts at around 17:00 and ends at 01:00 am. There is a self-service restaurant, from where you can get beers for 4-5 euros and food, e.g. pasta for around 12 euros.
Principote Beach Bar at Panormos Beach
Principote is a relatively new beach bar that opened in 2016 and is one of the most expensive ones in Mykonos. It has a restaurant, beach chairs, a bar and you should do a reservation before going, if it is July or August. This is a great place to do people watch while splurging. Keep in mind that the sunbeds here cost 80 to 100 euros (for two sunbeds and an umbrella set). The sunbeds in the back rows are at 60 euros.
The music here is usually a chill mix and the atmosphere is mostly lounge and not a “hard party” atmosphere until 17:30. Then it gets more upbeat and you could do some dancing. The food, the service,
