Heraklion is the capital city in Crete with a population in excess of 120,000. It is the centre of commerce on the island and is also the main port of entry to Crete for the majority of visitors. Crossings are available to Piraeus on the mainland of Greece, as well as to several Greek Islands.
Paros is one of the smaller islands in the Cyclades but has long been a tourist favourite. Why? Because Paros is neither too busy like neigbouring Mykonos or too crowded like neighbouring Santorini. Here you'll find crystal clear water and an unspoled landscape including Paros park one of the few completely protected nature reserves in the Cyclades islands.
The main town (Chora) is Parikia and here you'll find charming small shops and white-washed streets. However, in recent years the nearby fishing village of Nauossa has become a more popular hot spot and especially in July and August it resembles a mini-Mkyonos.
Paros has many fine tavernas and bars with mezze and you'll never be stuck for choice. But if it's clubs and dancing you want, stay clear. And in addition to the main settlements you'll find some charming villanges in the middle of the island like Lefkes - the old capita in times when pirates were a real threat and so the inland was much safer. Here you'll see how life used to be before tourism.
If you're island hopping in the Cyclades, Paros should definitely be on your itinerary.
13 May 2018Fast, punctual service
Impressed by the efficient running of the boat and fast turnaround at the calling ports
Review by ADRIENNE ORPHANOUDAKIS
25 Jun 2014Nice crossing with restrictions
The crossing is lovely but you cannot go outside unless arriving at a port as the boat is fast. The crossing is quick which is great but found it long as one is stuck inside. Nonetheless it is a pleasant trip.
