Getting Around Paros by Bus

When staying on Paros, the easiest and cheapest way to get between the main towns and beaches, and to the Antiparos ferry at Pounta, is by using the island’s excellent public bus system. The coach-style buses are comfortable, air-conditioned, and generally on time. Buses on Paros make a loop around the perimeter of the island, with some routes heading inland to the smaller villages.
