Paros is a civilized and powerful island from the 1st millennium BC, thanks to its rich land of olive groves and vineyards and its white marble of incomparable purity. In the Parian marble were carved, among other masterpieces, the Venus of Milo, the Victory of Samothrace and the Parthenon frieze.
The beauty of its beaches, its landscapes and its villages seduce immediately its visitors. The old town of Paroikia, just behind the port, has all the charms of a small Cycladic town, with its labyrinth of alleyways, arcades, its Venetian Kastro, the white and blue colours that dominates and the bougainvilleas all around.
Countless beaches are scattered on the East and West coasts. Such as Kolimbithres, with its amazing rock sculpures, Chrissi Akti, with turquoise waters, Molos Bay and the bay of Vigla. At the South, we can find the less frequented beaches of Glifa and Tripiti, and on the south-east, facing Antiparos, the beach of Pouda, a renowned spot for water sports. Some excursions in the villages of Lefkes, Marpissa and especially the port of Naoussa in the north, are recommended. Though being very crowded, Naoussa has an undeniable charm where you can enjoy fresh fish and seafood at the port.
You can embark from Paros but the choice of boats is limited.
