Paros Luxury Vacations
The “quintessential Greek island” as Paros is often referred to, its diverse and impressive landscapes include everything from serene valleys and rolling hills dotted with ancient monasteries and lovely little churches to endless powdery sand beaches framed by crystal-clear aquamarine waters. There are medieval ruins and monuments, postcard-perfect whitewashed towns and no shortage of enticing bars and cafes. Some say this island is like Mykonos as it was two decades ago, with all the atmosphere without the crowds or high prices, which is why those in the know tend to return again and again.
The strong wind known as the “meltemi” blows through Paros in the summer providing ideal conditions for sports like kitesurfing and windsurfing, drawing many to enjoy the waves, but even if you come during this popular time, it’s almost always easy to find a protected bay with waters calm enough for swimming. There are beaches for everyone here, like Golden Beach, well-organized and catering to water sports enthusiasts, while Pounds Beach is known for its music and beach parties and Kalogeros offers wonderful clay mud baths. Faragas provides a bit more seclusion with stunning surroundings practically untouched by humans that make it one of the most beautiful of all Cyclades beaches.
