Welcome to Paros


Paros is one of the larger islands of the Cyclades and is becoming a popular holiday spot as a spillover from the busier islands of Mykonos and Santorini. Its main drawcards are good sandy beaches and old world traditional fishing villages, which come with reasonably priced hotels and a vibrant nightlife. Paros claims to be the windsurfing capital of Greece, and kitesurfing and scuba diving are also popular watersports.

Paros island's main port is Parikia, which has a ruined Venetian castle and an impressive Byzantine church among its white-washed buildings, and a couple of lively jazz clubs. The resort town of Naoussa on the north coast is close to the island's best beaches and the majority of its nightlife centred around the waterfront. Lefkes, in the centre of the island, has a number of tavernas along its pretty winding streets. On a separate island section, known as Antiparos and separated from the larger section by a channel, is an interesting chapel cavern and more lovely beaches.
