The waters around Paros are known as a haven for wind sports. Northern winds blow down onto the island, creating conditions that are so ideal for windsurfing and kitesurfing, that international competitions are held on it. Many of the beaches on the northern shore will have equipment that can be rented, and instructors who can help, while Golden Beach, on the southern shore is also popular.
Explore the labyrinth of cobbled streets and take in ancient architecture, historical monuments, and harbour side restaurants that offer stunning views out to the sea. Thanks to the narrow yet airy streets, visitors can enjoy a cool day out while being amazed by the surroundings.
A important church for Greek Orthodox followers who make pilgrimages to the site every year. In August, a religious festival that celebrates the Virgin Mary is held, drawing in visitors from around Greece. According to folklore, the Church has 99 doors, with the 100th door set to reveal itself if the Hagia Sophia becomes an Orthodox church again.
The island has two open air cinemas that screen regularly throughout the summer. Visitors can enjoy the latest releases as well as classics from previous years, all while under the beautiful starry sky.
