Tropicana Paradise Beach - Mykonos


The Travel Channel voted Tropicana at Paradise Beach the best beach bar in the world.  It is set in a perfect bay with clear calm water (above), and every day in the late afternoon the party starts around 5 with Sasa - the King of Mykonos leading the charge. 

The wheels come off a bit, and I imagine that it would have been a great and horrible place to supplant a 19 year old Justin Delaney.  Should we ever meet via some kind of time travel worm hole, I will be sure not to bring this place up.  Kristin and I people-watched for a few hours and then literally drove our ATV off into the sunset. Check out the pictures.


 Just another afternoon at Paradise

 Way too old for this scene 

 the View 

 This guy, dumping sand from his shoe on a table below 

 The King of Mykonos and someone yelling 

 This girl just dances all night - that is her job 

 It is an idyllic setting 

 My fave patron and his perfect form 

 Lots of Italian bros, make the old Jersey shore cast look like tasteful aristocrats


 Once the dry ice came out, it was time to go

 Lots of Moet
