We drove over to Paros Park one evening in hopes of watching the movie under the stars. We were bummed to find out there was going to be no movie that day. They canceled the movie because there was going to be a Jazz Concert at the amphitheater, so we stayed for that instead! It was a great show under the stars!

We loved Paros and Paros Park was one of the highlights of our stay. We spent a great half day here (although it could easily be a full day trip).
The park is a ruggedly beautiful area of rocky landscapes, beaches and little bays spread over about 80 hectares. The area has been preserved and protected since 2009.
The main things to see here are:
i) MONASTIRI BEACH
There are 3 park beaches, the main one being Monastiri which has all the trappings of a popular Greek beach - sun-beds, umbrellas, beach bar. It’s a lovely beach but we didn’t linger here.
ii) PERIKOPETRA BEACH & TOURKOU AMMOS
The other two beaches are both natural and unexploited, without any facilities or commercial paraphernalia. Tiny little Perikopetra Beach is a picturesque bay and Tourkou Ammos is a long, sandy stretch of beach with calm, clear waters. This is where we swam.
iii) HIKING (Trail #3)
Several marked walking trails lead through the park. We followed Trail #3, an easy and very scenic coastline path dotted with wildflowers. It took us past striking rock formations to the more remote beaches where we jumped into the clear water.
iv) AGIOS IOANNIS DETI MONASTERY
An easy thing to do while here is to climb up to the blue-domed monastery which sits high above Monastiri Beach. Although it wasn’t open when we went, it was worth the short climb for the panoramic view back down over Nouassa Bay.
v) OTHERS
Other points of interest along the various walking trails are the Korakas lighthouse, a small museum, and the historic remains of an 18th century Russian Naval Base, although we didn’t have time to see any of these.
ENTRY: Free entry to the park
TIPS: If you’re planning on walking or spending any time at the more secluded beaches and bays, you’ll need to bring your own supplies - water, sunscreen, towels, snacks etc. Apart from Monastiri Beach, there are no facilities throughout the park.
GETTING HERE: We caught the small taxi-boat that departs regularly from Naoussa to Monastiri Beach (€10 return). Apart from driving, this is the easiest and most enjoyable way to get there.

We enjoyed the walk out there. Beautiful authentic natural place. It was windy and it gave even more particularity to the landscape. Many stones all over the place. Great mix between authenticity, nature, wind, sea, past. We loved it !

This park offers a very nice beach, a small museum which was closed in September, a garden/exhibit area, and several hiking trails.

Great day activity is to choose one of the paths that meanders around the park and soak in the nature and the best sights of paros looking back. After your walk cool off by dipping into the crystal clear waters at one of the wilder beaches at the end. Perfect!

There are 3 mains trails which can be easily done within 2 hours, depending how many Instagram pictures you will take. The park is enjoyable all day around but the Lighthouse is favorite at sunset time. The route No.1 is the spectacular cliff viewing along the north western coast of the Park. The lighthouse tower over the cliffs. Under the lighthouse a small cave can be found. From there if the visibility is good you can see nearby islands such as Naxos, Mykonos or Delos. The route path, both them main or connecting ones are well signposted. Nice beach on the route 3 from the Catholico/ Monastri beach to Almyros is nice to put zhe towel and have a nice swimming, just about 10-15 minutes and is called Tourkou Ammos or Turkish beach. Greta stretch of golden sand. There is no public bus to get there you need a car/scooter, from Parika about 20 minutes drive, before Naousa turn to Kolimbithres and go until the end of the road where the parking lot is or from Naousa you can take a boat, but in September there were 5 departure, first starting at 11:00 (around 6 Euro return ticket)

Great walk, very quiet and stunning views all around. Nice secluded beaches within a long walk from Naousa.

We hiked along the suggested paths around the peninsula and were amazed by the nature and the clear blue and turquoise waters. The secluded beaches and rough fauna are so beautiful!! getting to Paros Park was quite challenging by public transport, we came from Parikia and had to change the bus in Naoussa, then get off at Kolympithres and walk around 30 minutes just to get to the entrance of the park. But then it was all worth it. I recommend traveling with an ATV or bike to the park, not by public transport but this did not take away from our experience at Paros Park.

The hiking trails in this park are well-marked and well-designed. Route 1 to the lighthouse has spectacular views all the way. It is rocky in places, and involves some hills, but is suitable for the average hiker who is reasonably sure-footed.

I also enjoyed walking to Tourkou Ammos and swimming there, away from the crowds and umbrellas of Monastiri beach.
