Paros Yacht Charter Guide
Energetic yet understated elegance with a hint of traditional charm.
Resting at the heart of the Cyclades, Paros envelops an intoxicating fusion of stylish cafe culture and a bustling capital with spectacular scenery and beautifully preserved monuments. It manages to merge the best of the traditional, historically rich Greece with contemporary comforts and atmosphere.
Reasons to Visit
Away from the energetic glamour of Mykonos and the famous white-washed, blue-topped beauty of Santorini is the lively Cycladic island of Paros. Lying serenely out of the limelight surrounded by the glorious blue of the Aegean sea, this Greek gem oozes with charm and understated elegance. This makes it perfect for all kinds of superyacht vacations, whether you are looking for safe family fun or a relaxing romantic escape.
A Paros luxury yacht charter offers a little bit of everything to love about Greece. Its capital Parikía plays host to idyllic white cubed houses and neoclassical mansions alongside Byzantine churches and important museums, all overlooked by a 13th Century Venetian Castle. Amongst the architectural beauty is a buzzing modern Mediterranean atmosphere and a mosaic of chic bars and restaurants spilling out toward the gold sand-fringed coastline. Like many of the Cyclades islands, Paros can become very busy during the high summer moths so is best visited in late-spring and early-autumn when you can appreciate it’s offerings in relative peace.
The surrounding villages indented into the mountainous terrain are also worth a wander when spending a few hours ashore. As you move further into the hills you can appreciate the lush vegetation on the island, filled with all plane trees, laurels, wild olive trees, and carob trees covered in ivy that play host to the butterfly species Panaxia Quadripunstaria. Paros also boasts some great beaches, from trendy tourist strewn sands to renowned water-sports hotspots such as Chrissí Aktí which every year plays host to the Windsurfing World Championship.
