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.
Santorini is famous not only for its natural beauty but for its cosmopolitan lifestyle with a vigorous nightlife and various restaurants and cocktail bars along with fantastic accommodation facilities with views over the Caldera.
Santorini was destroyed by a powerful volcanic eruption in 1500 B.C. covering the island completely and destroying a highly advanced and powerful civilization (Akrotiri) that lived in the city at the time. However, this eruption created an unrivalled wild landscape with enchanting views and attractions that now make Santorini a must see place.
Stunning clean beaches with black shining pebbles and rugged landscape in the background coupled with black, white and red sands make Santorini a truly unforgettable experience. Famous for its "Caldera", the collection of cliffs bordering the Aegean Sea that in ancient times was an active volcano, Santorini is the Cyclades' most prized possession.
28 Jun 2018Severe delays
We have purchased 2 tickets from Paros to Santorini for 11.06 and our ferry arrived with a 1h and 25 minutes delay. And on 15.06, we had 3 tickets for the 9.30am direct ferry to Paros which was cancelled without informing us prior to the date. We've been rebooked on a non-direct 10.45am ferry. As we had plans in Paros and will arrive in the middle of the afternoon, our schedule has been completely disrupted. We are now seeking compensation for the inconvenience caused by these severe delays.

22 Oct 2014Chaos
The depositing and collection of luggage at the beginning and end of the trip was chaos. Particularly at the end of the trip there was a stampede of people and hundreds of pieces of baggage thrown on top of one another with people unable to get to them.

18 Sep 2013A mini cruise
Taking a blue star ferries? I was going home (via Santorini airport) and sad to leave Paros but decided to think of the 2hr 50 min trip as a mini cruise. The journey was stunning, brilliant sunshine and coming into Santorini is a gorgeous view. The ferry boarding and unloading is always a bit of a scramble and the staff (mainly male) are a bit surly. If you have a disability take note that it gets very crowded... On disembarkation at Santorini again it is a swarm of people trying to get buses to onward destinations and again, the drivers and conductors are surly, especially if you have luggage. Know where you are going, be assertive or have someone meeting you and make sure you have lots of time, the road out of the harbour is long, twisty not for the faint hearted. Would I use the ferry again, in a heart beat. The Greek islands are paradise on earth, but don't tell everyone, we don't want them to be overcrowded! Best way to island hop is with hand luggage and its very easy. I was there early Sept when there are less ferries but its a very popular time of year to go.
