Location

Cyclades, Aegean Islands, Greece

Paros is a Greek island in the Aegean Sea best known for its beaches and traditional villages. Paros is among the most popular islands of Cyclades and is ideal for young people, romantic couples and families too. The Parian traditional villages, particularly Naoussa, Parikia and Lefkes, are perfect samples of Cycladic architecture, with whitewashed sugar houses, paved streets and blue-domed churches. The beaches are famous for the tranquil azure waters and the pristine golden sands. The beaches on the south eastern side, such as Golden Beach and New Golden Beach, are particularly popular for windsurfing.

Parikia and Naoussa are the main villages of Paros, where most activities are concentrated, while there are also other seaside tourist settlements around the island. Other lovely beaches in Paros are Santa Maria, Kolymbithres and Parasporos. As it is located in the centre of Cyclades, holidays in Paros can be combined with holidays to other islands, such as Paros, Antiparos or Mykonos.

Accommodation in Paros Greece is spread around the entire island. Many tourist facilities are concentrated in the towns of Naoussa and Parikia. Parikia is the capital and main port of the island, and offers large hotels as well as smaller guesthouses and traditional apartments. Naoussa has numerous rooms and studios, as well as more upscale venues. Romantic resorts, luxury suites, and boutique hotels are found all around the island, particularly in Golden Beach and New Golden Beach.

The fabulous beaches, the picturesque architecture and the lounge nightlife are the things that make Paros island so special and ensure it has something to offer everyone that arrives.

The most common way to get to Paros is to fly to Athens, Santorini or Mykonos & then continue your trip with a ferry. This takes between approx 4 hours with the slowest boat from Athens up to 40 mins with the fastest boat from Mykonos.
