Paros Beach Hotels – Tips and Recommendations
- Booking.com – the best website for booking hotels in Paros.
- The coastline of Paros is strewn with beaches, some sandy and some craggy, many with unusual features. The two main villages, Parikia and Naoussa, have rocky seashores interrupted by small sandy beaches. Parikia is mostly flat with easy-to-reach beaches on either side of the ferry port. The area around Naoussa is hillier with a few beaches accessible by a set of stairs leading down from the main road.
- The best beaches in Paros are outside of the villages. Beaches on the west and south coasts tend to be quiet and relaxing, while the beaches on the east coast are popular for windsurfing, kitesurfing, and water sports. The most famous beach in Paros is Kolymbithres, known for its moon-like granite rock formations. Most beaches can be easily reached by water taxi from Naoussa or by bus from Naoussa or Parikia. To reach the more secluded beach, you’ll need to rent a car.
- Most “beachfront” hotels in Paros are not right on the beach but are across the street from a beach or on a hill overlooking a beach, just a short walk away. Still more sit inland a few hundred meters away. The first 6 hotels in this article are listed as beachfront. The following 9 hotels are right above or less than a 5-minute walk from a beach and are listed as “near beach.”
- Best Beachfront Hotels in Paros: Poseidon of Paros (Chrissi Akti Beach) • Kalypso (Naoussa)
