Paros Island: Information about the Island of Paros Greece

Paros is one of the largest islands of the Cyclades Greeca, with approx. 120 km coastline, situated about halfway between Athens and Santorini.

Already in ancient history Paros was famous for its semi-transparent marble, which is still quarried today. Parikia, the capital, is one of the main harbours of the Cyclades with frequent connections to almost all other islands. The island lies within approx. 2,5 hours (with a high-speed boat) or 5 hours (normal ferry) distance from Piraeus.

 

 

Paros Island has a lot to offer its visitors! Whether you prefer a quiet, peaceful holiday enjoying the beautiful nature and traditional Greek atmosphere, an active or educational one, or you would just like to party, you'll definitely find what you are looking for! The infrastructure is very good, the main road around the island being about 72 km long.

Paros has many beautiful sandy beaches for all tastes. Some are hidden, tiny little bays, enclosed by extraordinarily "sculptured" rocks ("Kolimbithres"), others are long and wide. The typical countryside with its gentle, terraced hills and magnificent rock formations, endless vineyards, olive groves and fruit trees is overwhelming. In the spring, the island is completely green, with flowers growing everywhere!
