Q2: Paros in May  (2 Answers)

thinking of travelling to Paros for 7-10 days next may. Will be the last 4 or 5 days of May and then the same in June.

Will probably be Nouassa or maybe Pariaki. How busy will these towns be.....will it be a little empty that early in the season? Nouassa harbour looks like a lovely place to go for a meal for example but will we be the only ones there?

I guess the same applies for the respective shopping districts. Will they be open/will people be about. Ive been to places before that early and they have felt a little ghost towny.

Sorry if stupid questions!!

Thanks

Paros questions  (11 Answers)

Hi,
I am struggling a bit with researching Paros for an upcoming trip beginning of July. Any help to clarify the following questions would be highly appreciated!

Public transport: I know bus transport in Paros is quite good. I have also read about a 'round the island' type coach / bus trip, but cannot find anything online. Any info on this? What about water taxis or small rental boats to circumnavigate the island?

Car / ATV rental: Considering renting a car or ATV to give us more freedom (stopping off at beaches we like, etc). Have been referred to ParosEuropeanRent cars & motorbikes... Any feedback on them? Any other recommendations on trustworthy operators? Opinions on public transport versus vehicle to visit various beaches / locations around the island?

Bicycles: I believe the island (particularly along the coast) is relatively flat. Is the island suitable for cycling? Are there dedicated cycling paths? Have safety concerns - narrow roads, heavy traffic etc.

Food: Paros appears to be highly praised as a foody destination, but most of the tips on VT seems to be pretty outdated. Any recent restaurant / taverna recommendations for good authentic Greek / Paros food?

Thank you very much!

BEST PAROS BEACHES & ACCOMMODATION  (9 Answers)

Hey guys,

Hubby and I are currently lapping up the beautiful Syros Island and due to leave for Paros tomorrow. We managed to just hop off the ferry from Athens, and pick up accommodation from the vendors on the street by the port.

I want to know .. does the same thing apply in Paros where you can just sort out accommodation at the port on arrival? That's the way we prefer to travel but I'd check. If so, does that also apply to most of the other islands in the Cyclades group?

We've loved the beaches of Vari and Galissos in Syros .. any recommendations for beaches in Paros that we should aim for?

Appreciate your help ... LOVE this site!!

Cheers
Dee :)

General question regarding budgeting for meals  (5 Answers)

Hi, I have been reading the reviews for restaurants in Paros and now my mouth is watering! But I need to get an idea of how much money (USD) to budget for food. I will be in Athens 2 days, Paros 4 days and Santorini 4 days in October. My breakfast is included at the hotels I am staying at so I will be eating lunch and dinner out. I am not a big eater, quantity-wise, but do appreciate fine food. Other times I am also perfectly happy with a good burger and beer. Prefer to stay away from the crowded touristy spots so perhaps I will pay more or less for doing this? Any suggestions?

Paros Nudist beaches.  (1 Answer)

My wife & I will be staying in Naoussa this August and are looking for nudist beaches in the area.

Or others on the island that it would be worth getting a car/bike to get to. Can anyone help us out with any ideas? (GPS coordinates would be great)
