Beaches · Islands · Marinas
Long ignored by tourists because of its reputation as a plain ferry hub, Paros today serves as one of the Aegean's major holiday destinations, luring travelers with its fashionable resort towns and quaint mountain villages. The island's many beaches, favored by ardent windsurfers from around the world, line the coastline for over 120 km (75 mi). Farther away from the sun-drenched beaches, you can trek over ancient footpaths leading to tiny traditional settlements and the ruins of medieval structures left over from Venetian times. When your feet tire of hiking across the island's countryside, tour the coastline by kayak or canoe. Use our Greece online vacation builder to arrange your visit to Paros and other destinations in Greece.

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.
