“he Paros Park deserves a ‘top 10’ article by itself, as there are innumerable reasons why you should visit. The natural, unspoiled rock formations that are a great sample of Cycladic beauty are one. The walking paths that introduce you to the beautiful nature on the island all year round are another. If you visit during the summer you should definitely have a swim at the gorgeous beach of Monastiri (AiYannis), or watch a film for free under the stars at the open movie theater Cine Enastron. During the yearly festival of the Park (June-October) a number of jazz, classical music and traditional Greek concerts and fascinating cultural events also take place. The Cycladic monastery of Ai Yiannis Detis and the Museum of the Park with the permanent historic exhibition ‘The Island of Paros through the Russian cartography 1770-1774’ are also well worth a visit.”

“Kolybithres is probably the most famous beach on the island because of their million year old granite rock formations that are part of a unique geology. Even though they can be reached by car or public transport, it is worth taking one of the retired fishing boats from the port of Naoussa that transfer people across daily, and enjoy the great views. Once you are there pick a spot on your favourite rock and enjoy the crystal clear waters.”

Beach
“A little further south from Piso Livadi is Golden Beach, considered by many to be one of the best beaches in Greece for water sports, if not the world. As well as some tavernas, you will also find a number of places to rent windsurfers, kayaks, stand up paddle boards and wakeboards, as well as some lovely and rather funky little beach inspired shops and boutiques. It can be very windy when the Meltemi is blowing but for many people that is part of its appeal. If you’re into watersports, a trip to Golden Beach should be on your list of things to do in Paros.”

“The Archeological Museum of Paros can be found behind Panagia Ekatontapyliani in Parikia. Its collections date from the Neolithic period to early Christianity. Even though this is not a big museum it includes some important exhibits, like the 6th century BC marble statue of Gorgon, the 490BC colossal worship statue of Artemis, and a neolithic figurine of a woman sitting with crossed legs with her hands under her chest. Housed in the Church of Ekatontapiliani, the Byzantine Museum of Parikia exhibits a collection of rare and valuable icons, various religious relics and other ecclesiastical items dating from the post-Byzantine period.”

“Located 5km south of Parikia, near the Monastery of Jesus of Woods, this valley is referred to as Petaloudes, which means Butterfly in Greek. Every year during the summer months, the valley is verdant and the Jersey Tiger Moths seem to wrap the entire valley which creates a truly breathtaking natural phenomenon.”

Ristorante
“A very good restaurant on the beach of Livadia. You can enjoy your meal (great food) by the sea watching the sunset and the lighted Parikia in the evening. Value for money! ”

Beach Bar
“The quiet south coast of Paros is windy and heavily indented, with small coves in between the rugged headlands. At the head of one cove is Faragas, a small but beautifully formed stretch of sand set far in from coast and out of the wind. The beach has a single bar, which provides sun lounger rental and full waiter service, so you won’t even have to get up for a drink or meal. The bar also plays music depending on the time of day, with gentle classical music first thing in the morning and more upbeat stuff later in the day. The water is as calm and transparent as you’d hope, and for a bit more seclusion you can head along to one of the tiny coves on either side of the beach.”

“After a day at the beach, there's nothing we enjoy more than seafood and fish, next to the water. Thalami is in Ampelas and one of our favorite places”
