Paros is the 3rd biggest island of Cyclades in Greece. It has around 40 beaches and below I’ll present you the 12 I visited around a month ago.
- Agia Irini beach
Agia Irini is a small beach full of palm trees and pebbles. It’s not organized with sunbeds and umbrellas but there is a nice beach bar and a tavern-restaurant with local Greek food next to the beach.
- Parasporos beach
This is a big sandy beach well-equipped with sunbeds and umbrellas. You should definitely have a drink in the beach bar and why not to play table tennis with your friends…
- Livadia beach
Livadia is Parikia’s main beach, and it’s near the harbor. It has lots of tavernas, restaurants and cafés with Greek and International dishes.
- Martselo beach
Martselo is also very close to Parikia. You will enjoy the crystal waters with a glass of wine or a cocktail from the luxury beach bar.
- Kolimbithres beach
It’s one of the most popular beaches due to the unusual rock formations. The rocks separate the beach to smaller pieces and the view of Naoussa is impressive!
- Santa Maria beach
Santa Maria has a long coastline and is divided in smaller parts. Sports lovers can enjoy wind surfing, diving and beach volley.
- Chrisi Akti (Golden Beach)
The sand has a golden color and the sea water is crystal! The suitable-for-windsurfing weather condition give Paros the opportunity to host the Wind Surfing World Cup for 6 consecutive years!
- Tserdakia beach
This is a small part of Chrisi Akti beach. It’s not organized but there is a small beach bar-taverna. I believe that it’s the perfect place to practice your wind surfing skills!
- Lolantonis beach
The name of the beach was inspired from the taverna which is located on the top of a small hill. It’s surrounded by rocks that give a sense of isolation. Not surprisingly, the waters are crystal.
- Pounda beach
Pounda is synonym of PARTY! Young people go there to party with loud music and swim either in the beach or in the swimming pool. There are also shops to buy souvenirs from Pounda beach such as t-shirts, top crops, hats, bracelets, lighters etc.
- Aliki beach
Aliki is a small village in the seaside where you can find two beaches, the Mprosta Aliki and the Piso Aliki. Mprosta Aliki is a well-organized beach with umbrellas, sunbeds, and cafés. Piso Aliki is a quiet seashore with big trees that form nice shadows. Moreover, you can enjoy your meal in one of the various tavernas and restaurants of the village.
- Faragas beach
Faragas beach is near Aliki and it’s a really nice organized beach. The beach bar-taverna serves food and beverages, that to be honest is quite expensive. The sea water is very clear and the rocks form 2 extra small shores.
The next time you go to Paros, you know which beaches to visit 🙂
At this point I have to say a special thanks to my aunt who hosted me at her home and showed me all these places in Paros.
