  • First week of vacation and am already in love! The residents and merchants are adorable. A beautiful setting and a small beach to cool off. Only downside: we see too many ferry pass offshore, it breaks a little charm. But it's a great starting point to visit this beautiful island.

  • Parikia is a Greek town filled with narrow alley ways of shops and eateries. It is quieter than the Greek towns of Mykonos and santorini and also less expensive.  more »
  • I would describe it as an alternative to the more chaotic and Parikia tour l Naoussa, Center and port of landing looks like a small and typical Greek Centre full of waterfront and beachfront restaurants and bars, alleys are full of little boutiques and bars. Us L we preferred because it's quieter and away from the chaos of the holiday season even though people c is, tourists arrive every day and in the evening the streets are filled more couples and families don't expect an empty seat but compared to Naoussa is getting much better.

Where to stay in Paros

Paros serves as a convenient base for exploring the Cyclades island group, so its best rooms near popular beaches fill up early in the season. Plan ahead and book your stay in Parikia, the island's biggest town, where you can choose from mid-range hotels and self-catering apartments offering modern amenities and quick access to the sea. Alternatively, consider the small fishing settlements scattered along the island's coastline, where locals rent out simply furnished rooms a walk away from secluded coves and Venetian ruins.
