Paros is one of the most beautiful islands of the Cyclades. The Cyclades are a group of islands in the Aegean Sea between Athens and Crete, famous for its beautyful beaches and spectaculaire architecture. No building is higher than two floors and most of the houses are the typical white houses with blue doors and windows. And lot of beautiful beaches.
Paros is the most central island of the Cyclades and there are several ferries (in summer daily) to many other islands.

Paros is a realtive still unkonwn island, you will enjoy a wonderful vacation without mass tourism. Even in the high season during July and August, it has nothing to do with the mass tourism of for example the Spanish or Italian coast. On Paros there are no buildings or hotels with more than two floors. You will find no nightlife or discotheques in Aliki. Just a few nice restaurants at the seafront mostly, 2 small bars and the most beautiful beaches only a few minutes walking distance away.
Aliki is a small authentic Greek fishing village at the still quiet south-coast of Paros. In Aliki you can find several nice restaurants; directly at the seafront you can enjoy fresh caught fish and Mediteranean food, made from fresh local products.
In Greece most people eat the main meal around 13:00 - 14:00 lunch time. After that for Greeks it is siesta time..... for non-Greek people time for a nice afternoon swim or a drink at the beachfront, watching the sun and the sea changing coulours.
No nightlife, no discotheques, just calmness and tranquillity.....except for an occasional nice village party.
Aliki is the perfect place to realy unwind from your daily stress, relax and enjoy a nice holiday.
Piso Aliki Beach
Paros is not so big, but there are many nice places to go to on the island. What I like most about Paros is its diversity. Every village, every beach, every area, is very different; has it's own atmosphere, it's own caracter.
