he Paros Park deserves a ‘top 10’ article by itself, as there are innumerable reasons why you should visit. The natural, unspoiled rock formations that are a great sample of Cycladic beauty are one. The walking paths that introduce you to the beautiful nature on the island all year round are another. If you visit during the summer you should definitely have a swim at the gorgeous beach of Monastiri (AiYannis), or watch a film for free under the stars at the open movie theater Cine Enastron. During the yearly festival of the Park (June-October) a number of jazz, classical music and traditional Greek concerts and fascinating cultural events also take place. The Cycladic monastery of Ai Yiannis Detis and the Museum of the Park with the permanent historic exhibition ‘The Island of Paros through the Russian cartography 1770-1774’ are also well worth a visit.

Kolybithres is probably the most famous beach on the island because of their million year old granite rock formations that are part of a unique geology. Even though they can be reached by car or public transport, it is worth taking one of the retired fishing boats from the port of Naoussa that transfer people across daily, and enjoy the great views. Once you are there pick a spot on your favourite rock and enjoy the crystal clear waters.

You have not really seen Paros if you haven’t walked the white-washed cobblestone alleys of the Old Town in Naoussa which lead to its picturesque port. A trademark of Paros’ identity and local architecture, these little, narrow maze-like passages may be peaceful and quiet during the hot summer mornings, but as soon as the night comes they team with people and life. Take the opportunity to sit in one of the numerous bars and restaurants that place their tables outside to enjoy the island vibe and indulge into some people-watching. The small Venetian Castle that is found in the old port of Naoussa was originally constructed in the 15th century and served as a watchtower. Today, only part of this fortress survives and constitutes the most characteristic spot of the town.

A little further south from Piso Livadi is Golden Beach, considered by many to be one of the best beaches in Greece for water sports, if not the world. As well as some tavernas, you will also find a number of places to rent windsurfers, kayaks, stand up paddle boards and wakeboards, as well as some lovely and rather funky little beach inspired shops and boutiques. It can be very windy when the Meltemi is blowing but for many people that is part of its appeal. If you’re into watersports, a trip to Golden Beach should be on your list of things to do in Paros.

There are a couple of excellent wineries on Paros. Established in 1910 Moraitis Winery is just at the back of the town of Naousa and has a very good cellar that also sells light meals and cheese platters. The ideal climate conditions of the Cycladic landscape has led to the production of some great reds, whites and rose wines. You may notice as you drive around the island that the vines are left to grow on the ground instead of on a trellis. This is so the wind doesn’t blow the grapes away during the Meltemi (strong winds that blow through the Cyclades from July – September). If you’re into wines, a trip to a winery is one of the top things to do in Paros.

The main port of Paros, Parikia is an enchanting maze of streets and passages paved with marble and fronted by Cycladic cube-shaped houses with blue doors, balconies and shutters. Geraniums, bougainvillea and potted flowers bring added splashes of colour to the city’s white walls. Parikia was port, shipping the island’s marble in ancient times, and its current buildings are constructed over the ancient city. There’s also method to the bewildering tangle of streets, designed by the Venetians to confound pirates and potential invaders. Parikia’s Venetian castle is on a hillock, dating to the 1200s and composed of marble spolia (re-used stone) from a temple that stood here before. On a roundabout at the port is the Parikia’s signature, a lone whitewashed windmill.

Ten minutes around the bay from Parikia is what most people agree is the best beach on the island. With a crescent of white sand, pool-like waters and full waiter service, it’s a mystery why Marcello isn’t busier. The sea is so tranquil that the only thing that musters more than a ripple is the wake caused by ferries entering and leaving Parikia’s harbour in the distance. Children will have the time of their lives playing in these safe waters while parents and couples will be spellbound by the vistas over the glimmering sea, back to Parikia and its mountainous backdrop.

The quiet south coast of Paros is windy and heavily indented, with small coves in between the rugged headlands. At the head of one cove is Faragas, a small but beautifully formed stretch of sand set far in from coast and out of the wind. The beach has a single bar, which provides sun lounger rental and full waiter service, so you won’t even have to get up for a drink or meal. The bar also plays music depending on the time of day, with gentle classical music first thing in the morning and more upbeat stuff later in the day. The water is as calm and transparent as you’d hope, and for a bit more seclusion you can head along to one of the tiny coves on either side of the beach.

This beach on the east coast only ever has a few bathers. Hardly any holidaymakers go this far, even though Molos Beach is only ten kilometres south of Naoussa. There’s no built-up tourism here, just a mushroom-shaped sandy bay with views of Naxos, bookended by the Kefalos and Antikefalos hills. To the south of the bay is a small harbour, hemmed by strange granite rock formations. Kefalos hill is also worth your attention as it’s an extinct volcano. At the top, standing in the crater, is the 16th-century monastery of Agios Antonios, while the vestiges of a 15th-century Venetian castle sit nearby.
