The charming cycladic island of Paros is located in the west of Naxos, about 40km south of Mykonos in Greece. Paros is best known for its beautiful white-washed towns, great long beaches and an ecstatic nightlife. It is considered to be the best blend of Mykonos and Naxos as the island offers both crazy clubs, restaurants and serene beaches with traditional inland villages.
With beautiful landscapes spread across a 120 km long coastline, Paros has endless cliff-top villages galore and verdant mountains. Two main villages, Parikia and Naoussa, are packed full of traditional taverns and sophisticated restaurants, bars and shops and are visited by young crowds for much-elated party nights full of drinks and music. For a more relaxed and quiet stay, one can choose to stroll around the sublime countryside of Lefkes and Marpissa.
Famous activities include windsurfing, surfing, kayaking, canoeing, jet skiing, and scuba diving which can be enjoyed at the beaches such as Santa Maria, Golden Beach and New Golden Beach. Hiking is also enjoyed well because of the presence of a magnificent network of walking trails in Paros park. A boat trip to nearby smaller Greek islands such as Antiparos and Schinoussa is worthwhile.
