Paros Cycladia Tips

Small tips to make your stay safer and easier

•    Make sure to make your travelling arrangements well in advance. Paros is a very popular destination, especially during the summer season!
•    The weather in Cyclades changes all the time, and sun can give its place to strong winds from one day to next. You should definitely pack a jacket, a long pair of trousers and some long sleeved t-shirts for these chilly evenings.
•    Finding a taxi on Paros in July or August might prove to be a tricky task. A good idea is to book one a few hours earlier.
•    Renting a car (or even getting your own with you) is a good idea on Paros. You’ll have a better chance to explore the island and its wonderful, hidden beaches.

Best Sunset
Don’t miss the incredible sunset in the beach of Agios Konstantinos, where the red evening sun becomes one with the Aegean Sea, coloring the white-washed walls of the pristine village houses.

Ideal for Sailors
It might be windy in Paros, but that’s an asset for some! Sailors can savour the unique scenery of the island’s coast on their boats, and explore the hidden corners of Paros. Unexplored bays and quiet beaches with crystal clear waters are just minutes away and you can also visit some more of the Cyclades islands, as they are only a couple of hours away. You don’t have to know how to sail to have this amazing opportunity, since there are professional skippers who organize daily sailing tours to the nearby islands.

Secret Trekking Paths
The old paths that used until the previous century to connect the villages are now trekking paths that provide adventurers a magnificent tour into the untouched Parian nature, as well as monuments not accessible by car.

The main paths are:
•    From Lefkes to Archilochos and Marpissa
•    From the monastery of Agioi Anargyroi to Lefkes
•    From Naoussa Monastiri to the lighthouse
•    From Drios to Piso Livadi
•    From Koukounaries to Naoussa

Windsurfing in Paros
Windy Paros is not only ideal for sailors. The island’s beaches are famous worldwide among the windsurfing funs, since the Professional Windsurfing Association has been organizing the world cup for several years at Golden Beach and New Golden Beach. Experienced surfers take advantage of the northern summer winds and surf the close distance between Paros West coast and Naxos East coast.
