Overview of Paros
Located at the heart of the Cyclades complex, Paros is one of the most popular Greek islands. From the seaside plots with their stark white Cycladic houses to the picturesque villages that hide in the mountains, Paros offers a variety in landscape. Its exceptional natural beauty, vast sandy beaches and impressive landscapes are combined with a well-developed tourist infrastructure.
The capital, Paroikia, welcomes the visitors with a pleasant buzz of travelers and locals that crowd the harbor. A few steps away, the white-washed alleys of the old town wind up all the way to the Venetian castle. The cosmopolitan town of Naoussa is a picturesque former fishermen village, with a nightlife that rivals the one of Mykonos. Paros is also one of the most famous windsurfing destinations of Europe, hosting windsurfing competitions every summer.
