Prospering thanks to its natural supplies of fine white marble in ancient times, nowadays Paros mostly focuses on tourism. Accommodation ranges from hip boutique hotels to basic room rentals, while it offers vast options in dining and lively nightlife. Of course the island’s routine changes totally during wintertime, when most facilities close down and bad weather conditions may keep the population isolated for up to a week.
Sandy beaches and clear blue waters, scenic whitewashed houses with blue doors, fresh seafood and dancing until sunlight will do the trick and make you fall in love with the island. Nearby Antiparos, Paros’ more laid-back baby sister, is easy to reach and is worth a day visit.
