This beach is beautifully embedded in small bays surrounded by beautiful rocks as seen in pictures from Seychelles. Very gentle waves, also ideal for children. And because boats are constantly bringing visitors, it quickly gets crowded.

3. Old Port of Naoussa

A nice wine tasting accompanied by good food. The winery is definitely worth a visit. And if you had previously enjoyed local wine on Paros, it is often from this winery. The explanations are in different languages including English.

7. Panagia Ekatondapiliani

Incredibly impressive cathedral built around a small, very well preserved 4th century Byzantine church. Probably one of the oldest churches in Greece. This is particularly beautifully built with the gray and white Parian marble. The cathedral itself also has an impressive interior with other icons. A candle is lit and a small donation is left. Observe proper clothing when you go here.

8. Martselo beach

Martselo Beach is very close to the capital of the island and the port, with easy access either by road or by boat. It is a large sandy beach with some tamarisk trees, sunbeds with umbrellas in some places, and clear blue waters. Nice beach for the windy days of the island.

If you like it quiet and natural, this is the place for you. However, the way to the beach is not for the disabled as it is not so easily accessible. Since the beach is very long, it is great for a walk on the shore. No infrastructure, therefore fewer visitors.
