Tips and Recommendations
- Naoussa and Parikia are the two funnest towns on Paros. Naoussa is trendier and has better restaurants, Parikia is busier and has more shopping (and where the ferries arrive and depart).
- A day trip to Antiparos is an absolute must. Great beaches and very good local restaurants. Small boats leave from the Parikia every hour and it takes about 20 minutes to get there.
- Kakou Rding Center
Dany and Ivan have been offering horse rides through Paros for over 20 years now. They have 19 horses, so if you’re with a large group, this makes an excellent way to see the Paros countryside.
- Kolymbithres Beach
Rock formations which remind some people of the moon dot this cove protected beach. Don’t visit to swim, get here early and adventure among the rocks.
