Whether beaches with funky beach bars or just traditional taverns and cafés - everything is offered. Whether singles, couples or families - whether active or quiet - each of you will find "his" favourite beach on the varied Cycladic island of Paros. Look forward to it!
Paradise for active vacationers
Windsurfing, kite surfing, snorkelling, diving, hiking - all this combined can be found on Paros. From the "Byzantine Way" of Lefkes you will reach the coast "on foot". Make a short stop in one of the villages to enjoy a coffee or a refreshment. Many other hiking routes or just a walk between the small villages is highly recommended. Especially the spring months are a special experience for hikers because of the abundance of flowers and the pleasant temperatures at this time of the year and let you feel "the resting pulse" of Paros Island.
For the water sports enthusiasts among you, the beach of Santa Maria as well as the Golden Beach are particularly suitable. Due to the close location of the island to Naxos, the wind tunnel there makes the island a paradise for surfers and kite surfers. But also snorkelers and divers do not miss out on the Cyclades island. The beach of Kolymbithres with its rock formations is for example also a dream for snorkelers.
Cyclades island with original charm
The capital Parikia, located in a bay, is with its large port an important landing place for shipping and thus allows its visitors short trips to one of the neighboring islands. The port city radiates Mediterranean flair and originality, which is particularly noticeable in the winding alleys and romantic squares of its old town. But also the pretty promenade with restaurants and cafés will surely not leave you wanting to miss it.
If you feel like a bit of nightlife afterwards, you will find it in Paros' capital, too, in cozy bars overlooking the sea. Many of the sights are suburban here, like z. For example the church Katapiliani with its baptismal font made of white marble, which is very famous and worth seeing for its beauty. The extraction of white marble has a long tradition in Paros.
The "market street" in Paros city as well as the windmill are popular meeting places and are not far from the port. Also the Venetian Castro and the famous Ancient Cemetery, some thousand years old, are worth a visit.
The yacht and fishing port in the bay of the small town of Naoussa offers a beautiful backdrop, which is why its visitors like to stop off at the taverns and cafés there. Not only do they enjoy excellent fish and other delicacies or a cup of coffee, but above all they feel and enjoy the charm of this place.
Lefkes is a small and traditional village in the middle of the island, which is "an absolute must" to visit due to its originality. Immerse yourself in the cozy atmosphere, the long history of this village and marvel at the small cottages that look as if they were from a bygone era. Unlike many other parts of the Cycladic island, the area around Lefkes is still green in summer, thanks to the surrounding pine forest and olive groves. Many other villages like Aliki, which is located opposite the nearby island of Antiparos, as well as Marpissa or Prodomos etc. are also worth a visit.
