Highlights of Paros
Old Town And Port Of Naoussa
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 beach of Kolybithres is one of the most famous beaches of Paros and is located in the huge bay of Naoussa, or Plastira Bay. This beach is particularly impressive because of the huge blocks of granite boarding it, sculpted into strange smooth shapes by the sea and the wind over the centuries. Many consider it as one of the most beautiful greek beaches.
Santa Maria Beach
Another beach that is located close to the harbour of Naoussa is Santa Maria. It’s rather a bay that hides several smaller sandy beaches and magical coves with turquoise water.
