Paros and Antiparos
Start the virtual stroll at the place of your choice by selecting a key location...
Agios Ioannis Detis, a former monastery
Located at the entrance of the Environmental and Cultural Park of Paros facing Naoussa, this former monastery is the setting for a permanent exhibition dedicated to the cartography of Paros drawn during the Russian occupation, from 1770 to 1775.
Ambelas, a nice sandy beach on the east coast of Paros
A tiny beach nestled in the harbor, with a few taverns and parking places nearby. Be careful not to park anywhere, it is also the place where buses from Naoussa turn around.
The beach of Monastiri and the Detis peninsula
The Environmental and Cultural Park of Paros, in front of Naoussa, is located at Detis Peninsula. Easy and picturesque trails, beach of Monastiri (sheltered from the wind), small open-air theatre, former monastery with museum, and tavern. A great place, managed by volunteers.
The nice little beach of Drios and its mysterious rock formations
These strange rock formations do not look natural and some say these are prehistoric docks. In fact, the memory of their story has been lost over the millennia...
Aghii Anargyri, the monastery perched above Parikia
The monastery is still in operation and is not permanently open. You can visit it from 10 am to 1 pm and from 5.30 pm to 8.30 pm. Please note: we do not guarantee these schedules, which are subject to change according to the season!
The picturesque fishing port of Naoussa
The picturesque fishing port is the great attraction of Naoussa. You will find bars and restaurants all around, for a drink or to eat while admiring the view.
Golden Beach, one of the most famous and lively beaches in Paros
A few decades ago, travelers were still camping on this beautiful beach. Times have changed and nowadays you can have modern comforts in studios just a few steps from the sea.
The beach of Kalogheros and, on the other side of Cape Kratzi, the beach of Molos.
Unorganized and sheltered from the north wind by multicoloured cliffs, this beautiful sandy beach is one of the jewels of Paros. Don't be surprised to see nudists and strange grey creatures. The clay of the cliffs makes it possible to concoct mud masks with healing properties!
Kolybithres, the famous beach with a lunar landscape in Naoussa Bay
One of the most famous beaches of Paros, in an absolutely extraordinary rocky chaos. If the rocks were not plunging into crystal clear water, you could really think you're walking on the moon! A magical place that will amaze you!
Lefkes, the traditional village in the mountains
The most visited village in the hinterland, on the slopes of Aghii Pantes (Profitis Ilias), highest mountain of Paros. Beautiful churches, picturesque alleys, amazing sights.
The old marble quarries of Marathi
The ancient marble quarries near Marathi. The marble of Paros is the most translucent in the world and it was used to carve the Venus de Milo, among others. A nice hike, but do not venture into the galleries, it's a very dangerous place, without any security!
Piso Livadi, a small fishing port on the east coast
A small fishing village on the east coast, facing Naxos. It's a nice seaside destination, with a small beach, taverns and bars, which extends south to the beautiful beaches of Logaras and Pounda.
Parikia, port and capital of Paros
From here, the virtual stroll goes either to the Archaeological Museum and around the basilica through the pine tree forest, or to the old town along Market Street, the most lively alley of Parikia.
The village of Antiparos, port of the little sister island of Paros
Our stroll continues along the waterfront heading north and goes past a small pier where fishermen lay their nets to dry.
Alyki, a popular seaside destination south-west of Paros
Lined with cafes and taverns, the seafront promenade stretches south from the beach to the large jetty that protects the fishing port and the marina.
Agios Fokas, the beautiful church that welcomes you in the bay of Parikia
From the ferry, the blue dome of the church of Agios Fokas is the first thing you see as you round the eponymous cape to enter the bay of Parikia. A beautiful church, small beaches, an extraordinary panoramic view of the capital of Paros and absolute tranquillity (no bars or taverns in the immediate vicinity).
Kostos, a small village that has remained authentic, away from mass tourism
On the left stands the church of Agia Marina, built in the 17th century and later enriched by an impressive stone bell tower. On the right, Agios Panteleimonas and its blue dome were built in 1780.
