  • First, I think it's important to make a clarification: a distance of 1/2 km from each other there are two Beach, the most famous FIRST called "SANTA MARIA GREAT" characterized by a long sandy beach unfortunately in high season very chaotic, the second thankfully less known is called "SANTA MARIA" and is a wonderful conch with a SEA nothing short of gorgeous (Beach always sand) a single bar/plant (umbrella + 2 Sun beds EURO 15.00). Personally I chose the smallest and I reached by bus from Naoussa (1.80 Euros ticket bus stops before the beach where generally all descend then to small). Only thing to watch out for is the fact that being small like beach umbrellas available can end easily so you don't have to go too late (to August it is better to arrive before 10 am). HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

  • Beach umbrella and 2 Sun beds price very crowded, €15, a little above average. Always service on the beach like other places. The local bar is suitable for young people because very often there are concerts from 20.00, from 15 dj who put music to start apetizer. A recommended place for young people to make an outing rather than sea

  • Beach crowded almost can't breathe, uncomfortable beds, greasy and all different, staff unfriendly and unhelpful neo against foreign nationals (especially Italians). I could go back I'd stay away light years

  • Wide open, well organized beach with water sports options. One of the most famous of the island.

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.
