Paros is one of the major islands in the Greek Cyclades group.

Families, couples and travellers of all backgrounds will enjoy a trip away to this gorgeous island.
Low-cost holidays to Paros are available from most major airports in the UK and since the route is growing in popularity with tourists, there is bound to be a departure time that suits you. The island doesn’t feature a major airport but there is a daily service transferring to this place from Athens.

The most popular period to visit Paros is in the spring to autumn period with temperatures often climbing to the low 30s during these months. However, the island never gets too busy and that is one of its main pro points. The temperatures drop to around the mid-teens in the winter months and while there will still be some things to do in the tourist off-season such as a few hiking routes, Paros doesn’t see the same level of activity as the summer.
There are a number of excellent resorts that you should consider visiting whilst on the island. Parikia features one of the most spectacular sights on the island: the church of Panagia Ekantontapiliani which translates as the church of 100 doors. Naoussa is a village to the north of the island which boasts lovely beaches and a Venetian castle. Lefkes is a village that is situated in the middle of the island and is known for its cosy tavernas and friendly atmosphere. Watersports are popular on the island of Paros, especially wind and kitesurfing. There is also a fun Aqua Park which is just 15-minutes from Naoussa.
Paros is quite a quiet island so doesn’t see the same range of accommodation options as some of the other Greek islands. However, it is not hard to find some great places to stay with each resort mainly consisting of a few affordable hotels and apartments. These places tend to be by the beach if you are travelling to a resort on the coast. There are also some fabulous places to eat all over this island. Restaurants, tavernas, cafes and bars are all available in the most popular resorts and make for a very pleasant holiday.
