Paros

It’s easy to see why many people regard Paros as the quintessential Greek Island.

Located in the heart of the Cyclades Islands in Greece there are over 120kms of coastline and 10,000 inhabitants. Beautiful beaches, medieval villages, wineries, harbours and easy access to neighbouring islands, they say Paros is like Mykonos was 20 years ago. It has all the charm and atmosphere but without the crowds and the steep prices particularly in summer.

There are two large towns, the Port town of Parikia and the more cosmopolitan and lively town of Naoussa in the north. Both are lovely and offer something for everyone. There is also the magical inland village of Lefkas in the hills and numerous beachside villages dotted around the island. The island is a good size that allows a full loop as a day trip but not so small you run out of things to do or places to explore.

There a good reason why Paros is a perennial favourite for so many visitors.
