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.
Crete, the southernmost of the Greek islands, is popular with tourists from across the globe for its rugged mountainous scenery inland, its beautiful coastal towns and beaches, and typical Greek culture.
Visitors are drawn to Crete year-round. Because of its southerly position Crete benefits from a warm, temperate climate - you can comfortably lay on Crete's beaches and sunbathe from April until October!
Enjoy the splendid scenery Crete has to offer, explore the tiny traditional villages inland or visit the ancient Minoan palace of Knossos - whatever you decide to do with your stay in Crete, you are sure to have a memorable and enjoyable time!
