The beautiful island of Paros in the Cyclades was once a key mining area for Greece’s famous white marble. While abandoned quarries now dot this Aegean island, its economy now thrives on the visitors who come here to experience the peaceful beaches and sun-bleached views. Whether you’re looking for exploration or relaxation, you’ll find a selection of activities on offer that include beach sports, windsurfing or simply a day on the sands rounded off with a trip to the glimmering lights of Parikia’s cobbled harbourside, where you’ll find an almost endless number of cafes, bars, tavernas and restaurants.
Parikia — The capital and primary port of Paros, Parikia is the busiest town on the island. For party loving beachgoers it boasts an active nightlife, but it is not without its cultural gems either, such as the grand Byzantine church Panagia Ekatontapiliani that was erected here in around 550 AD.
Naousa — The second busiest port on the island, Naousa is also known for its nightlife. However, a visit here offers more than just bars and restaurants. For lovers of the great outdoors, a trip to nearby Paros Park offers a gentle hike ending in unrivalled views across the Aegean, enhanced by the nearby lighthouse and in spring, a splash of wildflowers.
Agkairia — While the heat of the sun and the sandy beaches encourage a gentle pace of life here, more active visitors should head to Agkairia. Here you’ll find some excellent kite and windsurfing opportunities. Each August, the region also hosts an annual festival, which blends modern and traditional music and dance with the village’s gentle taverna culture.
Kolimbithres — This exquisite beach on the island’s north coast is not your average. While it offers the usual sun, sea and sand, it is unique in that natural erosion of the rocks has created gorgeous, secluded swimming coves that you can get lost in for hours.
The traditional windmills of the Cyclades dot Paros Island, particularly around Parikia. If you’re feeling more adventurous, scuba diving is a popular pastime in Paros. There is nothing quite like exploring the unique sub aqua seascapes of the Aegean, and it is not unheard of to spot an octopus or majestic turtle gliding by, so bring your underwater camera too!
If you tire of sand in your shoes, hit the water park near Naousa. Ideal for families, the park is a wonderfully relaxed way to let the kids explore on their own, while you kick back with a refreshing drink. Of course, beyond the beaches and pools, the island has an unsurpassed cultural heritage, which can be explored in the cool of the shade with a trip to the Archaeological Museum in Parikia. Packed with pottery and ancient statuary, here you’ll learn all about the evolution and power of classical Greek antiquity.
