About Paros

Ferry hub of the Cyclades, Paros is a great base to explore the whole island group. But it's also a great place to stay. The beaches vary from watersports friendly to pristine and secluded, there's fascinating history and mythology to discover, and it's also quite colourful after dark. Paros's sugar cube villages vary from big and bustle-y, to quiet fishing village, to low-key resort, so there's plenty of variety when it comes to choosing the best places to stay on Paros as well.

One of the great things about being tagged as a transport hub is that people assume it's not worth choosing Paros as a base - but it is! And you'll find it much less touristy than some of the other islands in the group, despite the excellent infrastructure.

The best places to stay on Paros are near the beach, and on the south side of Paros are the windsurfing and water sports beaches. The rest of the island alternates rocky cliffs and sandy stretches, which will be a pleasure for those wanting to explore the island on foot. The white marble walkers will come across has long been famous for its quality - this is where the milkily perfect marble for the Venus de Milo came from, and also the marble for Napoleon's tomb.

  • The capital, Parikia, is one of the best places to stay on Paros because of its colour and energy! It's the main port AND home to the castle and many culturally important churches. It's also where you'll find the liveliest nightlife, and it runs beside a stretch of golden sand. Lined with tavernas. Yria Resort is just outside Parikia in Parasporos. And is one of the best places to stay in Paros because it benefits from all the town's appeals, but is really in its own friendly village.

  • Naoussa is a picturesque fishing village with plenty of traditional charm. Only 10kms from Parikia, its narrow streets between whitewashed architecture, make it feel 50 years away.
  • If you like a mountain breeze, stay in the beautiful, untouched village of Lefkes Olive and pine trees grow on the slopes below.

The Best Places to Stay on Paros (or Paros Adjacent)

  • Some of the best places to stay on Paros aren't actually on Paros. Naxos Town is only 25mins delightful sail away. And it can be much cheaper. Tucked into the maze of white alleys, Château Zevgoli is homely, welcoming and inexpensive - starting from just £37 a night.
  • Antiparos is a tiny, adjacent island, and though people usually visit on a day trip from Paros, if you're looking for a quiet beach holiday, or you like camping, it's a good choice.
