Paros attractions


Paros is noted for its soft-sand beaches and clear turquoise waters. They come in dozens of flavors. Chryssi Akti ("Golden Beach") is ideal for windsurfers, Kolimbithres for families preferring shallow depths, Pounda for youths craving all-night DJ beach parties, and Agia Irini for sun worshipers seeking a quiet setting.


This ancient quarry provided pristine translucent marble for celebrated statues including Venus de Milo that has become a cultural icon far beyond the borders of Greece.


It's a delightful mountain-hugging Greek Island village.
