Paros Family Hotels – Tips and Recommendations

  • Naoussa and Parikia are the two liveliest towns on Paros. Naoussa is trendier and has better restaurants, Parikia is busier and has more shopping (and it’s where the ferries arrive and depart).
  • A day trip to Antiparos is an absolute must. Great beaches and very good local restaurants. Small boats leave from the Parikia every hour and it takes about 20 minutes to get there.
  • Kolymbithres Beach – Rock formations which remind some people of the moon dot this cove protected beach.  Don’t visit to swim, get here early and adventure among the rocks.

10 Questions and Comments

If you have a hotel or travel question sign up for my newsletter and I'll give you directions on sending me questions.
  1. Itinerary for Greek Islands

    Hi Dave. Would love your help and comments on this itinerary.

    We are a couple (active) in our 60s traveling to Greece in mid-May 2019 from London. We are from California.

    2 nights at Perissa Beach – Anastasia Princess?
    3 nights other side of the island (deciding between Aria Suites and Tsitouras Collection).
    Ferry to Paros. Thinking about the Astrid Suites Villas. Will have car. 3 nights.
    Ferry to Mykonos. One night at Petasos Beach Resort.

    My questions: would a 3 night Santorini : 3 night Paros : 3 night Mykonos be better?
    Are these hotels good selections?

    1. Santorini Dave The Hotel Expert

      This looks like a great itinerary. Could you change it to 3/3/3? Yes, but be sure to drop Perissa if you do and only stay on the caldera side of Santorini. You’ll get plenty of beach time in Paros and Mykonos. Aria Suites has more to see and do within an easy walk. Tsitouras has a little more charm though. (Unless you’re staying at the villas at Aria in which case these are a little nicer.) Petasos is a great hotel in a wonderful location for the beach, restaurants, and bus to Mykonos Town. Unfortunately, I have not heard of Astrid Suites.

  2. 2 Weeks in Europe with Kids

    Hi David,
    Planning a trip to Europe from Australia this May – June, we will have our 2.5 and near 4yr old with us. Was thinking of going to Split for for 6 nights and then onto Paros for 9nights, or alternatively choosing Crete instead of Split, Croatia to keep things simple.
    What are your thoughts? Are there more suitable Islands we should be looking at?
    Many thanks,
    Prudence

    1. Santorini Dave The Hotel Expert

      Crete and Paros are both great islands. Sticking to Greece would certainly keep things simpler and save you some travel time (there’s a direct ferry from Crete to Paros) but Split is also beautiful.

  3. Mykonos, Naxos, Paros for Family of 4

    Hi David,
    Thank you so much for sharing all your valuable knowledge and experience. We (family with 2 kids, age 8 and 6) are planning our first holiday in Greece for 3 weeks this August and I was hoping I could run past our itinerary so far and ask for some advice along the way.

    easyjet flight to Mykonos (most likely around Platis Gialos)
    2 days stay in Mykonos and catch ferry to Paros
    6-7 day stay in Paros, either at Santa Maria Windsurf Centre or The Golden Beach
    ferry to Naxos with a 6 – 7 day stay around Naxos town
    ferry back to Mykonos with a 1 – 2 day stay before fling home to London

    – we are hoping to stay in self catering resorts (Paros) and apartments in (Mykonos and Naxos)

    Now my questions-
    * do you know of any advantage why to do our trip the other way round (i.e. Mykonos – Naxos – Paros – Mykonos)?
    * would you recommend either Santa Maria resort or The Golden beach for some windsurfing, snorkling, etc
    * do you know of any (reasonably priced) all inclusive companies that fly us to Paros into a windsurfing resort (we could then continue to journey independently without taking the homebound flight). I couldn’t find anything on the net?!
    * Santorini seems a lot more expensive (flights to Gatwick and accommodation) therefore we consider flying out of Mykonos. Is this a big mistake to miss out on Santorini?

    … very sorry, there are more questions that first intended.

    Kind regards,
    Daniela

    1. Santorini Dave The Hotel Expert

      Everyone’s budget is different but I would strongly recommend putting Santorini on your itinerary. As is, you’ll be buying a ferry ticket (Paros to Mykonos) to see an island you’ve already been to. Much better to start and finish in different islands and not to double-back. And you get to see one of the most amazing islands for just a little more money (and not the thousands that it would take to make a trip to only Santorini). Golden Beach is best for windsurfing. Sorry, no idea about an all-inclusive for windsurfing (though can’t imagine how that would be a wise way to save money even if it did exist). If you did Mykonos and Santorini then go Mykonos, Paros, Naxos, Santorini (or backwards) as that’s the way the ferry goes. But if you return to Mykonos then the order doesn’t matter. Good luck.

  4. Naoussa or Naxos Town with Kids

    Hi,
    We’re going to the Greek Islands this year. My husband and 2 young children (1 and 3yrs) , my sister and her 2 young children (6 and 7 years) and our parents (in their 60’s).

    We like beaches but would prefer to be right in town as we like the liveliness at night. The restaurants, shops, bars. We have been to Oia in Santorini before and we are after that lively and villagey feel again. As we have young children we want to be about to easily walk to tavernas at night.

    We are tossing up between Naoussa, Paros (staying at Stelia Mare or Kanales?) or staying in Naxos Town on Saint George Beach. Knowing what we are after, which would you recommend? We can’t do both as we are already going to Hydra before.

    1. Santorini Dave The Hotel Expert

      These are both wonderful towns (two of my favorites on the Greek islands). Both have a fun lively vibe with lots of restaurants. Naoussa is trendier with more nightlife and fewer kids (though still plenty). Naxos Town has a more family-friendly feel and kids are everywhere. Naoussa has some nice beaches nearby but nothing like the super kid-friendly beach at St George that will likely be a 30 second to 3 minute walk from your hotel. Not sure if you’re looking for any nightlife but Naxos Town does not have much. Naxos Town has a wider variety of really great Greek restaurants. Naoussa has a wider variety of good non-Greek restaurants.

  5. Cyclades with Baby

    Hi David

    Love the Blog. I am going to be travelling with our 6 month old baby to Greece in September next year – we will have 11 nights in the Cycledes – starting with 3 night in Santorini (already booked) with the remaining 8 slights undecided. We are pretty sure we are going to Naxos for 4-5 nights, then wasn’t sure what to do with the remaining days. Are Paros and Naxos too similar to visit in the same trip? We were going to Milos, but with our baby so young we would like to stick to closer islands to cut down on ferry time. Is there anywhere else you would recommend that is good for a baby.

      Paros and Naxos do have many similarities but I would still do a few nights on Paros – great island.
