They invest in development, while holding their history, traditions and culture in the highest esteem. The older generations offered and created. The younger ones worked, maintained, studied and returned to support their island with their knowledge and experience.
Paros is located in the heart of the 24 inhabited islands of the Cyclades and because of its central location, it is an ideal starting point for the exploration of Aegean. The island, which is west of Naxos and east of Antiparos, is elliptically shaped, with 168 kilometers of coastline. Ferries arrive at our island in just a few short hours, and it is well connected to multiple destinations. The island infrastructure comprises a port, airport, marinas, public services, banks, post offices, local transportation, etc. The main port and anchorage are situated in Parikia, the capital of the island. Naoussa and Piso Livadi both operate marinas from which excursions to Naxos and neighboring islands depart. The port of Pounta connects Paros and Antiparos.
Both private and public health services are offered. Private doctors and pharmacies can be found in almost every village. Paros has an aircraft dedicated to health care for free emergency air transport. The network of roads is among the best in the Cyclades. There are several regular bus routes, as well as many taxis and automobile and motorcycle rental agencies. Although the entire island can be toured in a few hours, there is always something new to discover.
