Island of Paros

Unrivalled natural beauty with rolling hills and beaches with crystal clear waters make this one of the most popular of the isles of the   Cyclades.

Parikia, the island’s capital is a beautiful Cycladic village with whitewashed cubic houses and impressive neoclassical mansions, overlooked by an imposing Venetian castle. Don’t forget to visit the 6th century church of Panayia Ekatontapyliana, the church of 100 gates and the fascinating Archaeological Museum.

The island is criss-crossed with Byzantine paths, making it perfect for keen ramblers, and great to explore on foot. Perhaps the best known is that which leads through beautiful countryside from Lefkes to Prodromos.

The island is famous for its marble, and the quarries at Marathi, where the famous Parian marble used to be extracted, were in operation from the 3rd millennium BC right up until the 19th century. The mining galleries and 19th century industrial buildings have been preserved and can still be visited today.

One of the most picturesque areas of Paros is that of Krotiri, where the beautiful Krios Beach, is situated with its charming harbour.

Continuing on from the beach of Krios is the beach of Marcello, which are two of the most beautiful, clean, sandy and sheltered beaches of Paros.

Connections  

There are regular ferry and/or catamaran services between Paros and the port of Piraeus (Athens) , Heraklion (Crete), Santorini, Mykonos and Naxos and to Rhodes/ Kos every Sunday and daily domestic flights to Athens.

Transfers  and Distances

Details of all island transfers will be given at the time of booking or on request, since these vary depending on departure details.

"First impressions when we saw the gulet was 'wow!' The crew were so welcoming and the cabin beyond our expectations. Everything was perfect, the food was plentiful and delicious. The gulet was spacious and comfortable and sleeping on deck under the stars and watching the sunrise is something really special. Thank you, thank you. An unforgettable holiday that was so, so special..."  Mr & Mrs Guy

"Our holiday in Turkey exceeded our expectations. Cappadocia was interesting and beautiful. It was exciting staying in cave. Istanbul was amazing. We had very little previous experience of Turkey and Turkish people, so we enjoyed the beauty of the country and friendly hospitality of the people. We felt safe and not at all threatened in the city. The quality of food and service in restaurants was good. Efes beer is very tasty."  Mr David Hyam
