Paros

Paros
The holiday island of Paros is the place for chilling out and napping on the beach, soaking up the relaxed Aegean vibe.

Away from the beaches, terraced hills climb up to the mountainous interior, where the island’s famous pure white marble is quarried. The Paros marble has been famous for millennia, used by the ancient Greek genius who carved the beautiful Venus de Milo and by the sculptors who adorned Napoleon’s tomb.

Your main base on the island is the port of Parikia, at the head of the bay on the northwest coast. There’s a labyrinthine old town to explore, a 13th-century Venetian fort and taverna-thronged waterfront for sunset drinks and seafood meals.

The Panagia Ekatontapyliani church is a highlight of the entire Cyclades, with an ornate interior dating from the year 326. Make sure to visit the Byzantine Museum while you’re in the church grounds, filled with icons and other artifacts from the early Christian era.

The roads are sealed on Paros, making getting around by scooter an easy option. Rent two wheels and you can circuit the island to east-coast beaches like Logaras and Golden Beach. Head north, and you can visit the little fishing village of Naoussa on Plastira Bay, and the nearby mini acropolis of ruins. There are scores of other villages to visit, with their lovely old churches and quiet leafy squares.

The neighboring island of Antiparos is even more laidback than Paros, and its beaches are a huge hit with divers and sun worshippers. Its awe-inspiring cave thrills avid spelunkers, its stalagmites and stalactites considered amongst the best in Europe.

Practical Info

Ferries sail to the port of Parikia from Mykonos Town, around 60km (37 miles) away to the north.

Buses run around the island, and in summer you can catch a ferry to Antiparos off the island’s west coast.

Lazy Dash - 7 Dages Afslappet Sejlads i Cyclades

Denne uge er en ode til friheden til glat cruising under sejl. De små Cyclades er en fantastisk sejlads med flad hav at sejle og krystalklare turkise farvande til at udforske i et afslappende tempo.I denne uge begynder vi vores rejse fra havnen i Paros og løber sydpå til de små Cyclades. Rejsen vil først tage os til den fjerne ø Despotiko for at opleve den cykladiske natthimmel i en af vores yndlings fjernstrande.De næste dage er helt dedikeret til det turkise vand i Schoinousa, Ano Koufonisi, Keros og Kato Koufonisi. Svømme og dykke blandt i nogle af de mest ekstraordinære strande i Det Ægæiske Hav. Vi fortsætter med et nordgående upwind sejl til Donousa, inden vi går mod vest mod øerne Macheres og havnen i Naxos.I Naxos kommer du til at gå mellem de smalle gyder i den gamle bydel, blande med de lokale og opleve det cykladiske natteliv.Endelig vil vi gå tilbage til Paros for vores afsked.
