Discover Paros - Stylish resorts and cultural villages

By Amy Adejokun Amy Adejokun Section editor

Our Editorial team's advice

From mountains to fishing villages and seaside resorts in deserted coves, Paros offers great diversity. This diversity can also be found in the island's hotel facilities. With the choice between a large seaside hotel, a charming little hotel, a facility which offers studios, apartments and bungalow rooms and a small family-run hotel in the village, there is something for all tastes. Bear in mind, though, that hotels are generally open from April to October. A bus sevice runs from morning until the evening on the island, but it is preferable to rent a car or a bike so that you don't lose too much time. The port for boarding the ferries (a 5-hour trip to Piraeus) is located in Parikia and the airport is about 6 miles south of the main city.

To do

Naoussa is, without doubt, one of the most charming villages on the island. It is a small fishing port, with a unique setting and it is worth visiting even if you only spend a night there.

pros

  • +  Its authenticity
  • +  A wide range of hotels
  • +  A relaxing destination which is ideal for the family

cons

  • -  The increasing number of tourists

To avoid

Greece is a country which is far more pleasant off season. Everything is easier and more enjoyable and the local population is more relaxed when it is not invaded by tourists.

To try

Good quality fish is the island's main asset, but there is also Greek salad, tsatsiki, etc. Parikia is overflowing with small restaurants where these dishes can be found at reasonable prices.
