Windsurfing Heaven on Golden Beaches
Paros has a deserved reputation for being a friendly island, and the main port of Parikia seems to welcome guests with open arms. Beyond the port the island rises through gentle slopes to Mt Profitis Ilias (770m). White marble made Paros prosperous from the Early Cycladic period onwards – most famously, the Venus de Milo was carved from Parian marble, as was Napoleon’s tomb. The other major settlement, Naousa, on the north coast, is a charming resort with a colourful fishing harbour and a developing waterside lounge scene that may one day rival that of Mykonos. On the east coast is the charming low-key resort of Piso Livadi. Deep at the heart of Paros is the peaceful mountain village of Lefkes.
Neighbouring is the smaller and charming island of Antiparos with its spellbinding stalagmite filled cave.
