But, as with any tropical destination, it can be challenging to find the best area to stay to capture all that Paros has to offer. But don’t worry — we’ve rounded up our favorite parts of the island. Let us be your guide!

The 4 Best Parts of Paros

Paros is a definitive magnet for tourists and much more developed than its immediate neighbor — Naxos. Simply put, there are nice places to stay on every side of the island.

Our favorites include:

  1. Naoussa: A charming and very beautiful fishing village with a lovely old port and striking beaches, it’s the most obvious choice for every first-time visitor to Paros.
  2. Parikia: A typical island capital, it’s the richest place in Paros in terms of culture and history, boasting one of the most beautiful churches in Greece and numerous accommodation options and restaurants.
  3. Piso Livadi: The obvious choice for a family-oriented vacation, Piso Livadi has plenty of shallow and clean beaches, numerous boat cruises and activities, and a generally calm and relaxed atmosphere.
  4. Chrissi Akti (Golden Beach): A paradise for water sports enthusiasts, especially for wind-surfers, Chrissi Akti also has one of the most beautiful beaches on the island, along with plenty of restaurants and cafes.

The Best Areas & Hotels in Paros

As a major tourist destination, Paros is packed with hotels, apartments, and all the other accommodation options under the sun.

Whether you’re looking for a one- or two-star budget hotel, a mid-range hotel or apartment, or a super luxurious and expensive five-star accommodation — you’re sure to find them all. But there are still some things you have to know.

The accommodation options, for example, are not equally distributed along the island. The inland is — obviously — practically without any. Almost all the hotels are located in the coastal villages.

There’s practically no place along the coast of Paros where you can’t find accommodation. That being said, you’ll only find a true variety of options in the four places on our list: Naoussa, Parikia, Piso Livadi, and Chrissi Akti. Let’s start with Naoussa.

1. Naoussa

We are starting our adventure through Paros with Naoussa, a small but charming fishing village that has attracted tourists from all around the world for ages.

Located just six miles from the capital, Parikia, it looks precisely like a postcard representing this part of Greece: plenty of shiny white houses, a charming harbor, scattered boats and yachts, and a sea as clean as a mirror.

Although a former fishing village, today, Naoussa is a major tourist destination. If you love the sun, the beach, and the sea, Naoussa is definitely the right place for you.

There are plenty of sandy beaches in the area — some of them you can reach by foot, but for others, you’ll need a car or some other form of transport. Piperi Beach and Agioi Anargyroi Beach are within the limits of the city.

The second of the two is basically one of the largest attractions in the village. Aside from the beaches, make sure to check out the Old Port of Naoussa.

All clad in white and blue (chairs and tables in the restaurants included), with the recognizable white-washed cottages, it’s the unofficial center of the city. There are plenty of boats anchored in the harbor at all times, as well as the best seafood restaurants and taverns in the city.

Although Parikia is the place where you should look for culture and history, there are some interesting landmarks in Naoussa as well.

First, there’s the once mighty Venetian fortress on the shores of the village that’s definitely worth your time. Second, the lovely Chapel of Agios Nikolaos, also located by the sea, is the central religious building in the city.

The accommodation options in Naoussa are simply fabulous, and that’s one of the reasons why it’s the first location on our list. There are plenty of hotels suitable for everybody’s pocket. The restaurants — as is usual on the islands in Greece — mostly serve seafood and are great.

Things to Do

  • The first thing you should do in Naoussa — even before visiting the beaches — is spend as much time as you can relaxing and strolling along the Old Port. It’s basically thanks to the port that this village is so picturesque, and trust us — there are few places like it. Some of the best restaurants are located here, too, offering both great food and an unforgettable view of the sea. We recommend:
  • The majestic ruins of the Venetian castle are basically in the palm of your hand and are part of the Old Port. There are also two churches in the village that are worth visiting: the Chapel of Agios Nikolaos and Saint Panteleimonas.
  • We don’t even have to mention that the largest and most important attractions in Naoussa are neither the castle nor the churches but the fantastic sandy beaches. Your most obvious choices are the two city beaches: Piperi Beach and Agioi Anargyroi Beach. You should know that the second is significantly better and more popular. But there’s also Lageri Beach, around five miles from the village, and Stefano Beach, which is just as far.
  • Finally, Naoussa has one more surprise in store for you — the Moraitis Winery. A 2022 Travelers’ Choice selection, and located near the waterfront, it’s both very nice and very old. It started working more than 100 years ago, in the year 1910. Today, the fourth generation of the family still owns its 100 acres of vineyard and continues to create their product on a high level.

Where to Eat

  • Archipelagos is a traditional Greek and Mediterranean restaurant that’s great for traditional island dishes and fresh and tasty seafood. A 2022 Travelers’ Choice selection, we recommend that you try the moussaka, the lamb, the shrimp, the sea bass, and the Caesar salad.
  • Almond in Paros is the perfect place for you if you want to have a strong and nourishing breakfast before you hit the beaches of Naoussa. Mostly suitable for either breakfast or brunch but great for the other meals of the day as well, its whole menu is based on healthy ingredients.
  • Safran is one of the best Mediterranean seafood restaurants in Naoussa. A little bit on the upscale side, it’s the right place for having a business meeting, celebrating an anniversary, or another special occasion. The tuna steak, the linguine shrimp, and the watermelon salad are its most ordered dishes.

Naoussa Budget Hotels

  • Minoa Hotel is a two-star hotel with a great balanced location: just 150 meters from the beautiful center of Naoussa and very close to Agioi Anargyroi Beach. The hotel also offers a view of the Aegean Sea and the lush garden on the premises, and the tavern on the premises serves exquisite traditional Greek food. Also, there’s a bus stop very close to the hotel.
  • Atlantis Hotel is another very cheap two-star hotel, mostly booked because of its beautiful courtyard that’s perfect for a nourishing breakfast before you hit the beaches of Paros. The hotel also provides free Wi-Fi and free parking, has a lovely outdoor swimming pool, and a charming bar on the premises.

Naoussa Mid-Range Hotels

  • Hotel Bilia is a decently priced three-star hotel built in Cycladic style — all clad in white and blue. The hotel is strategically located between the city center of Naoussa (just a two-minute stroll) and the Piperi Beach. It offers an outdoor swimming pool, free Wi-Fi, and parking, as well as an airport shuttle.
  • Hotel Naoussa is another decently priced three-star hotel, but it’s located further away from the center of the city. It’s still close to the sea, though, and there’s a bus stop nearby to take you to the center. There’s an outdoor swimming pool, a bar on the premises, and a lovely breakfast in the morning.

Naoussa Luxury Hotels

  • Lilly Residence-All Sea View Suites, Adults Only is a perfect choice if you want to spend a lot of money and get treated like a celebrity. This luxurious and amazing five-star hotel has no less than six swimming pools, rooms furnished with chic furniture, extra silent air conditioning, original paintings, and plenty of other services. The hotel, by the way, is located on the beachfront.
  • Parilio, a Member of Design Hotels is a less expensive and luxurious five-star hotel that’ll still provide the experience of your life. The list of things that the hotel offers are the following: a seasonal outdoor swimming pool, a bar and a restaurant on the premises, a fitness center, and a spa and wellness center. The hotel offers an airport shuttle as well.

2. Parikia

The second place in our guide belongs to Parikia, the capital city (or better village) of Paros and the largest settlement on the island, with a population of around 4,500 people.

It’s a quintessential Cycladic town, with a beautiful old port, a maze of narrow cobbled streets, and plenty of houses and cottages clad in the recognizable blue and white. It’s also the commercial and cultural center of Paros, with numerous shops and historical landmarks.

You can do most of the shopping on the main commercial street of the city, located in the Old Town, called Lohagou Fokianou Street. Here you can buy everything from food and clothes to souvenirs and memorabilia.

The harbor, on the other hand, is not only charming and beautiful but also full of restaurants, cafes, and nightclubs — a great place to have a late stroll, lunch, or a night out.

But the real fun starts when you turn your attention to the history of the city, as Parikia is the best option for history lovers. One of the most beautiful churches in Greece, for example, is located precisely here.

Panagia Ekatondapiliani (literally translated as “the church with 100 doors”) is extremely old and very striking. It was built in the early fourth century by the legendary Saint Helen (the mother of Roman Emperor Constantine the Great) and later improved by Justinian the Great.

The second most important landmark is the post-Byzantine or Venetian Frankish Castle Parikia, built to fortify the Venetian rule on Naxos and Paros.

There’s not much left of the castle today, but the parts that stand are truly formidable. The accommodation and restaurant options in the capital are simply great.

Much like Naoussa, there are plenty of hotels, apartments, and holiday homes in almost all price ranges. One thing is different, though: there are not many luxurious options as in Naoussa, but there are plenty more budget hotels.

Things to Do

  • History buffs, explorers, and museum heads are going to have the time of their life in the capital of Paros. The best way to start is, obviously, the Frankish Castle Parikia. But, inside the half-preserved walls, there’s a small surprise: namely, the ruins of the ancient Archaic Temple Of Athena. Then, make sure you visit Archaeological Museum Parou located very close to the Panagia Ekatontapiliani. Finally, for the extra enthusiastic, we recommend visiting the charming Paros Ancient Cemetery.
  • Devout Christians and lovers of Christianity are also going to have their hands full amidst the cobbled streets of Parikia because one of the largest, oldest, and most beautiful churches in Greece is located here. The Panagia Ekatondapiliani is not literally a church with 100 doors, but it’s closely connected both to the beginnings of Christianity and the most famous emperors (and their mothers) of the Byzantine Empire. Apart from that, we also recommend two other beauties: the Church of the Virgin of September (Septemvriani) and the Church of Saint Helen (Agia Eleni).
  • Like most places in Paros, Parikia has a lot of fantastic sandy beaches to offer to potential visitors. Here’s a short list of the best ones in the closer area around the capital of the island (listed in no particular order since all of them are quite nice):
    • Souvlia Beach
    • Krios Beach
    • Livadia Beach
    • Martselo Beach
    • Parikia Beach

Where to Eat

  • Cuore Rosso is a traditional Mediterranean restaurant located in the heart of the Old Town of Parikia. It’s probably the best place in the city if you’re interested in having an authentic Italian pizza, some lasagna, or one of its fantastic pasta dishes. There are plenty of great desserts too.
  • Parea Cuisine Paros offers an interesting combination between traditional Greek, Mediterranean, and European cuisine and specializes in healthy yet very tasty dishes. Moreover, they only use the freshest of local ingredients. The meat, fish, and seafood, as well as the salads, are perfect.  
  • Little Green Rocket is a rare Mediterranean and Asian fusion restaurant that offers the best of both worlds. A 2022 Travelers Choice selection and located very close to the Post Office of Parikia (good for orientation), we recommend the sushi, prawns, and shrimp, as well as the daily specials, which are always great.

Parikia Budget Hotels

  • Hotel Livadia is a very cheap one-star accommodation with a great location on the waterfront. All the rooms are equipped with modern amenities and have private bathrooms. The views of the Aegean Sea from the terraces are also marvelous. Finally, there’s free parking and free Wi-Fi, and the premises of the hotel are completely pet-friendly.
  • Hotel Cyclades is a gorgeous and relatively cheap two-star hotel, which, as the name suggests, is a perfect visual representation of the white-clad Cycladic culture. Its rooms have air conditioning, plenty of modern amenities, and simple but charming wooden furniture. There’s no pool, but the location is great, and the breakfast is superb.

Parikia Mid-Range Hotels

  • Panorama Paros is a great three-star hotel with a great location on a small street opposite the bay of Parikia. It’s decorated in a traditional Cycladic style, it boasts an outdoor swimming pool, and it has a restaurant and bar on the premises. Rich breakfast is served in the morning, and the bar offers a wide range of cocktails.  
  • Hotel Aegeon is another very nice and relatively cheap three-star hotel located ten minutes both from the beach of Parikia and its harbor. The hotel’s minimalist decorations make for a more than relaxing vibe. More importantly, though, it’s very clean and boasts an outdoor swimming pool and a lush garden. Traditional breakfast is served at the beautiful sun terrace.

Parikia Luxury Hotels

  • Paros Agnanti Hotel is by far the most luxurious and expensive hotel in the capital of Paros. It’s famous for its calm atmosphere and stylishly furnished rooms, equipped with all the amenities. The hotel has a swimming pool and plenty of sporting facilities (even a tennis court). As you’d expect, there’s also a restaurant and bar on the premises.
  • La Vue is a four-star holiday home that’s very expensive, but when you see what it has to offer, you’ll realize that it’s worth every penny. We are talking about a huge place that boasts a gorgeous outdoor swimming pool, a lush garden, and a fine terrace with a view. The accommodation also offers free parking, a bar, and free Wi-Fi.

3. Piso Livadi

There’s no better place to have a relaxing vacation with your family in Paros than the small village of Piso Livadi.

Formerly inhabited only by locals, bit by bit, new hotels and apartments, as well as some attractive restaurants, have transformed this place into a family-friendly paradise. Located in the eastern part of Paros, it’s literally on the opposite side of Parikia.

But why is Piso Livadi more suitable for families and small children than the numerous other similar villages on Paros?

First, Piso Livadi is comparatively cheaper than Parikia or Naoussa since it’s neither an important cultural center with plenty of landmarks nor a well-known tourist hub.

In comparison to other not-so-popular villages on the island, it has significantly more accommodation options and restaurants. Simply put, it offers the best of both worlds.

Second, the beaches in the area — especially Piso Livadi Beach — are very warm, shallow, clean, and more than suitable for smaller children. Piso Livadi Beach also boasts plenty of amenities, a great restaurant, and a very calm and relaxing atmosphere.

Third, there are plenty of organized activities — like walking tours and boat tours — that may give a sense of structure and organization to your trip. In that way, the vacation might not get boring for your children since they’ll be constantly occupied by interesting adventures and activities.

Then, the restaurant options overall are simply great. There are plenty of taverns, steakhouses, and seafood places that offer prime quality at a significantly more reasonable price than the more popular places in Paros.

Finally, Piso Livadi is close to some interesting places on the mainland of Paros, like Lefkes, that can be pretty educational and interesting, given the important landmarks and museums.

Things to Do

  • The beaches in the wider area around Piso Livadi are great — much like in the other parts of Paros. Most of them are sandy and clean, offer plenty of amenities, have restaurants and cafes in close proximity (if not on the beaches themselves), and are quite shallow and warm. Aside from the one that is closest to the village (Piso Livadi Beach), we recommend that you check the other beaches in the area:
    • Punda Beach
    • Kalogeros Beach
    • Molos Beach
    • Logaras Beach
    • Nea Chrisi Akti Beach
    • Golden Beach Paros
  • Join one of the tours — either on land or by sea — that Piso Livadi has to offer. They offer a great chance for you and your family to get to know Paros and to explore the natural beauty of one of the most charming places in Greece.
  • If you’re up for an interesting adventure to the not-so-frequented mainland of Paros, only four miles from Piso Livadi, you’ll find the interesting village called Lefkes. Surrounded by beautiful pines and olive gardens, it’s one of the most beautiful places in Paros and a perfect choice for nature lovers.There are some interesting landmarks either in the village or nearby, like the Folk Art Museum, the Museum of Aegean Folk Culture, the Byzantine Church of the Holy Trinity (Agia Triada), and the archeological site called Ancient Marble Quarries.
  • Although we only talked about Piso Livadi as a suitable place for a family vacation, the place can also be quite suitable for young people since it offers shopping and nightlife as well. Segno – Clothes & Accessories is a great find for easy-on-your-wallet shopping. Then, among the bars, clubs, and cafes that offer a decent night out, three stand out:

Where to Eat

  • Mango Restaurant is a traditional Italian and Mediterranean restaurant that offers a beautiful view of the Aegean Sea. The food is usually cooked to perfection and made with local fresh ingredients. We recommend pizza or pasta and then the best dessert in the world — gelato.
  • Markakis Restaurant is a Mediterranean seafood restaurant located on the waterfront of Piso Livadi. A 2022 Travelers’ Choice selection, it offers a variety of seafood options prepared in butter and capers and served with a scrumptious potato salad. The dessert after dinner is usually free.
  • Anna & Giorgos Restaurant is definitely the best place to eat in Piso Livadi if you’re passionate about meat. A Greek steakhouse, it’s quite suitable for lunch or dinner (but not breakfast) and for a late-night drink. The lamb in this family-owned restaurant is simply exquisite.

Piso Livadi Budget Hotels

  • Hotel Fisilanis is a charming and cheap two-star hotel with a great location right on the beachfront of Piso Livadi. Located in one of the favorite places in the village, it’s mostly famous for its bright and airy atmosphere, decent on-site bar and restaurant, and superb breakfast in the morning. The hotel also offers facilities for disabled guests.
  • Klironomos Apartments Logaras is a really cheap three-star complex of apartments located just 200 meters from the beach of Logaras. All clad in white, with a lush garden and a pretty view, it also offers free parking and free Wi-Fi, as well as rooms equipped with kitchenettes, TVs, and private bathrooms.

Piso Livadi Mid-Range Hotels

  • Albatross Hotel is a decent and fairly priced three-star hotel with a charming outdoor pool. What distinguishes this accommodation from the numerous others in Piso Livadi is its great location, very close to both Logaras Beach and Punda Beach. It also boasts a fitness center and a bar on the premises, a very good breakfast in the morning, and an airport shuttle.
  • ParosCarmel studio-apartment is one of the most charming apartments you’ll find in Liso Livadi. A three-star, pet-friendly accommodation, it’s in a building all clad in white and following the principles of classic Cycladic architecture. It also offers free Wi-Fi, free parking, close proximity to the beach (20 meters), and family rooms furnished with all the amenities.

Piso Livadi Luxury Hotels

  • Summer Senses Luxury Resort is one of those five-star hotels that you have to visit at least once in your life. A super luxurious accommodation, it offers a large quantity of everything: three outdoor swimming pools, two bars, and two restaurants. The breakfast is exceptional, and one of the restaurants on the premises (Hytra Athens and Gaia) is Michelin-starred.
  • Villa Nausithoe is another very expensive and beautiful four-star accommodation located very close to Logaras Beach. This beautiful holiday home offers practically everything you can think of: a beautiful garden, a large swimming pool, barbeque facilities on the premises, and a small fitness center. There’s even a bike rental on the premises if you want to cycle the area.

4. Chrissi Akti (Golden Beach)

Sun setting over the rocky coast of Chrissi Akti near Chania, one of the best areas to stay in Paros


If you adore water sports and plan on spending all your vacation in an adrenaline rush, Chrissi Akti — also known as the Golden Beach — is the right place for you.

We are talking about golden sand as far as meets the eye and perfectly clear blue water. It’s located around 10 miles from the airport, 12 miles from the capital Porokia, almost 10 miles from Naoussa, and two and a half miles from Piso Livadi.

As you can see, even if you aren’t staying precisely in Chrissi Akti, you can still visit it from anywhere in Paros. The beach is practically the center of the whole area.

A mix of sand and garden grass, with a lot of sunbeds and umbrellas, and all the other amenities nearby — including a lot of cafes and restaurants — you can stay here for hours without needing a break. There’s even a shop if you want to spend the extra buck.

The central thing on the beach is the legendary Golden Beach Surf Club, where you can learn everything about windsurfing. The place is quite suitable for both experienced windsurfers, as well as for rookies and beginners.

There are also numerous opportunities for scuba diving and snorkeling. We said that Golden Beach is mostly popular for windsurfers, but that doesn’t mean that it isn’t interesting and attractive for everybody else.

Plainly speaking, we are talking about one of the best places in Paros, no matter your interests.

The amount of accommodation is quite decent, and so is the variety. You can find a hotel in every price range here, from a budget apartment to a super luxurious five-star hotel.

Things to Do

  • There aren’t many better places on Paros if you are a hardcore watersports fan than Chrissi Akti (Golden Beach). Right on the beach itself, you’ll find the already cult Golden Beach Surf Club, where many professional windsurfers come by. If it’s perfect for watersport professionals, it’s even better for amateurs and rookies because you can get guidance from seasoned veterans and professionals. You can also try scuba diving or snorkeling.
  • Luckily for everybody, Golden Beach is not only a barren heap of sand; it’s particularly rich in cafes and restaurants. We recommend the Punda Coast and the Viva Punda if you’re up for a fun night out. If you prefer a calmer and classier lunch or dinner, then: BuonVento, Kima Restaurant Paros, The Beach Project, or Blue Restaurant Bar.
  • If you’re in the mood for discovering and learning something new, almost 12 miles from Chrissi Akti, you’ll find the Butterflies Nature Reserve, where you can spend a couple of hours in an Eden-like forest surrounded full of butterflies.
  • Significantly closer to Golden Beach — around eight and a half miles — you can also find the Museum of Cycladic Folklore, where you can learn more about the particularities of the island and the general culture it belongs to.
  • Finally, as we mentioned earlier, Chrissi Akti is very close to every other place that we talked about in this guide. If you get bored but still want to have Chrissi Akti as your home base, you can rent a car or board a bus and visit Parikia. Extremely popular Naoussa is another option, however, you certainly must at least go to Piso Livadi, which is only half a mile away.

Where to Eat

  • Kima Seaside Restaurant is another Greek seafood restaurant deserves its 2022 Travelers’ Choice selection. The restaurant is all clad in white and offers a fantastic view of the sea. It’s mostly suitable for business dinners, anniversaries, or romantic dates.
  • Restaurant Anna is another Mediterranean restaurant located in Drios, very close to Chrissi Akti. The place is suitable for every meal of the day, and it’s not very expensive. It also boasts a lot of healthy dishes and many vegetarian, vegan, and gluten-free options. Well worth the trip!
  • BuonVento is an Italian restaurant located to the north of Chrissi Akti, very close to the sea. Aside from the beautiful view, the restaurant boasts a relaxing atmosphere, as well as very professional and friendly staff. It offers a taste of Napoli in the middle of the Aegean Sea — if you love wine, this is the right place for you, given its extensive wine list.

Chrissi Akti (Golden Beach) Budget Hotels

  • Silver Rocks Hotel is a very cheap two-star hotel located between two beautiful beaches. Aside from the swimming pool with sunbeds, the hotel also offers free parking and free Wi-Fi, family rooms equipped with all the amenities, a bar on the premises, an airport shuttle, and facilities for disabled guests.
  • Captain’s Rocks Hotel is a very cheap but very beautiful three-star hotel, decorated all in white and blue, like a quintessentially Paros’ hotel. The rooms are air-conditioned, have private bathrooms, and some of them boast a terrace with a view of the sea. Aside from that, the hotel also has an outdoor swimming pool and a bar on the premises.

Chrissi Akti (Golden Beach) Mid-Range Hotels

  • Golden Beach Hotel is a slightly more expensive three-star hotel. It doesn’t have a swimming pool, but you won’t need it since the hotel is located directly on the beachfront. Aside from the usual amenities, as well as the bar, restaurant, and room service, it also has a shared lounge, a gift shop, and babysitting services.  
  • Seample studios is a three-star accommodation located a stone’s throw away from the famous and gorgeous Golden Beach. Located on the beachfront with direct access to the sea, it also boasts rooms with air conditioning, private bathrooms, and a view of the sea. Finally, it offers free Wi-Fi, free parking, and a car rental agency.

Chrissi Akti (Golden Beach) Luxury Hotels

  • Poseidon of Paros Hotel & Spa is a super luxurious five-star hotel and the best and most expensive accommodation option in Chrissi Akti. it has an outdoor swimming pool, a fitness center, a bar, and a restaurant on the premises. An airport shuttle and great breakfast are also available upon request.
