Paros Island is among the most popular of the Cyclades islands in the Aegean Sea known for its traditional villages and beaches. It is ideal for the younger generations, romantic couples and families. Parikia, is the bayside capital. It is one of the boating and transportation hubs of the Cycladic region. The Parian villages are mainly traditional, particularly Parikia, Lefkes and Naoussa. They are all excellent samples of Cycladic architecture.

What to see & do in Paros
Panagia Ekatontapiliani, in Parikia is a landmark Byzantine church from the 4th century A.D. Kolimbithres on the northern coast is a beach where swimming coves have been sculpted from rocks. The beaches are famous for the clean waters and the golden sands. The Golden Beach and New Golden Beach on the south eastern edge of the island are great for windsurfing. A short but relaxing day trip from the island to the small neighbouring island of Antiparos is a good excursion also.
