One of the prettiest towns we saw on our island hopping holiday. Hidden restaurants are dotted around the labyrinth of streets. Gorgeous. Friendly service from restaurants and shop owners.

We spent a day there having fun walking through the cobblestones streets and around the port. It’s simply lovely and offers delightful shopping especially when so many things, including clothing, are on sale! Everything was so much fun in this place!

From your choices I would stay in Parikia. There is much more going on and you can easily catch busses to the other towns. The island has a ring road that is 55kms long and most places are easy to reach. We saw lots of... More
