Discover Paros

 
Paros is the third largest island of Cyclades. It is situated at the center of the island group, making it an ideal island-hopping base. Boasting 105 miles of coastline, Paros is filled with dozens of small and big beaches and bays. The main port is located in the island’s capital, Paroikia, whereas Naousa and Piso Livadi feature marinas that host private boats and sailing excursions. At the center of Paros lies the Marpissa mountain from which water streams find their way to the sea, creating a biotope of immense diversity, one of the richest in the Mediterranean.
The island’s infrastructure is perfectly adequate for every need, featuring a state-of-the-art road network, a plethora of public and private transportation options, and healthcare centers.
