Best Beaches in Paros

Updated On:

Written By: Pavlos Inglesis

Paros is one of the most hyped greek islands (after Mykonos and Santorini) and I truly believe there are a lot of reasons to be. The best beaches in Paros are some of the best in the Cyclades with golden sand, awesome beach bars and, as always in the Aegean Sea, crystal clear turquoise waters.

Paros beaches are mostly covered with golden sand and are all organized with fun beach bars and clubs, not to mention some of the best water sports in Cyclades

BUT ALSO CHECK:

Most of the main beaches on the island are reachable by the local Paros Buses but I highly recommend renting a car in Paros as the island is pretty big with lots of things to see and do.

Most of the beaches in Paros are well organized and get very busy during the summer high season (July, August and September)

So, the best beaches in Paros are (in no particular order):

VERY IMPORTANT TO KNOW

  • Are there any sandy beaches in Paros?: Paros has many sandy beaches such as Kolymbithres, Krios, Pounda beach that are all covered in beautiful golden sand. In fact, the famous (and windy) Golden Beach is called like this because of the golden sand that is covered with!

  • Best Beach in Paros: many people consider Kolymbithres to be the best and most unique beach in Paros but Monastiri, Marcello and Faragas are equally beautiful but probably less picturesque than Kolympithres

  • Best Beach for Families with kids in Paros: I believe that the best beach for families and kids in Paros is Faragas and Krios with lovely relaxed beach bars and restaurants on the beach

  • When can you actually swim at the beaches of Paros: you can swim in Paros whenever you feel comfortable, to be honest, but all beaches are at their best in June, July, August and September when the waters are very warm and the ambient temperatures are more than 30 degrees Celsius (86 Fahrenheit). Paros is an island that (unfortunately) can get too busy in the summer (not Mykonos and Santorini busy though…)
  • Tickets: there are no tickets on any of the beaches in Paros but in order to use any sunbeds you would have to pay from 10 to 50 euros per pair of sunbeds and an umbrella. You can always bring your own umbrella and sunbeds if you want or just lay your towels on the beach. Nobody will say anything.

CONCLUSION

So, these are the Best Beaches in Paros. I believe that Paros in the next decade will end up being as busy as Mykonos and Santorini is these days, so it’s literally the next best thing when it comes to greek islands. When it comes to its beaches, it is certainly one of the most gifted greek islands as there are tens of beautiful sandy beaches that are very easy to reach all over the island.
