Pristine beaches covered in golden sand, evocative mansions designed with flawless Cycladic architecture, a traditional windmill which acts as the crowning jewel of the bustling harbour… Paros achieves the marriage of authenticity and sophistication at a level that’s nothing short of impeccable. Whether you choose to stay in Parikia, the main port, visit Naousa, the Old Harbour, or tour its many coastal and inner villages, this incredible island is certain to draw you in with its high-end delights.
Its winding, cobblestoned alleyways are dotted with Mediterranean fine-dining restaurants, luxury boutiques and exclusive bars. This is no ordinary Cycladic island; here, the traditional carries a cosmopolitan touch of elegance and never lacks in the element of surprise.
It’s also not short of sleepy fishing villages, where myriads of picturesque beaches are always just a moment away and family tavernas serve up the catch of the day grilled and drizzled in lemon and olive oil, just like it’s been done for hundreds of years. Take a dip in the Kolymbithres cove, where fascinating formations of milky-white granite will be certain to pique your attention. Or follow the footpaths of Paros Park to take in even more unbelievable natural and geological scenery before diving into the refreshing crystalline waters of Monastiri Beach.
Though there’s no shortage of exciting activities on Paros, the neighbouring island of Antiparos is only a 10-minute ferry ride from Pounta and definitely warrants a visit. Its nightlife carries a special dose of style, with bespoke cocktails and compelling decor stealing the show. The tiny shops that stud its narrow streets are also teeming with diversions which could keep the attention of guests captive for hours on end.
Parikia is the best of both worlds, a place to enjoy every aspect of this idyllic island. All that remains to truly elevate your getaway is to stay at Acqua Vatos Paros, an Aqua Vista Hotel.
