Paros is Renowned since antiquity for its fine Parian marble. Some of the most famous statues have been made of the Parian marble like the Marble of Winged Victory of Samothrace (located in the Museum Louvre, Paris), the statue of Aphrodite of Milos (located in the Museum Louvre, Paris), Hermes of Praxiteles (located in the Museum ancient Olympia, Greece) etc. Paros is considered to be one of the most beautiful islands of the Aegean. Unfortunately, it is often skipped on the shorter cruises in favor of the bigger-name islands in the Cyclades, like Mykonos and Santorini.
Just five miles away across the Aegean sea lies Naxos, an island which is often thought of in the same mental sigh as Paros.
Lawrence Durrell, in his book “The Greek Islands,” sums them up like this: “(Naxos and Paros) seem to coexist in the mind as being of comparable charm and magnitude”.
There is good dining to be had on Paros, along with a friendly, active nightlife that is not quite as glittery as Mykonos or Santorini, but more than enough for the party-bound traveler.
Seaside beaches to visit are: HRISSI AKTI BEACH, KOLIMBITHRES BEACH, LAGGERI BEACH, MEGALO PIPERI BEACH, PISSO LIVADI BEACH, SANTA MARIA BEACH
All of Paros and Antiparos beaches have been given the Blue Flag award by the EU.
