Nice beach, but definitely not the best in the island

We went to the beach ones. It is ok, but there are much better beaches in Paros. Though this one is worth visiting. Do not ignore it.

We came to this beach after Monastiri which was too shallow and sand in the water was more mud type than sand. the stagnant water behind the beach was smelling bad and was making the stay at the beach displeasing.

The beach is sandy, with many tourists, mostly students. It is too crowded. The coffee was bad. The umbrella costs 9 euro and all were asked to leave at 19:00, because they wanted to finish serving the clients!! This policy drives tourists away, there are several other beaches (and islands) with surely better and more polite service.. Very low value-for-money,... More

A beautiful beach off the beaten path second only to Golden beach. This place rocks, two beach bars one with EDM and the other with no music at all. Make sure to try the fresh squeezed juices and the restaurant will blow your mind!

On our recent 15-day island hopping tour of the Cyclades, we were spoilt for good beaches: Plaka on Naxos, and then Chrissi Atki on Paros (where we went the day before here) set a high standard.

One of the best beaches on the island with golden sand and clear water which is amazing despite the crowds occupying every inch of it. It is pity that so many umbrellas are allowed and there is no free space around.

Sandy beach close to Naousa with beautiful crystal water. It's recommended for young people mostly and families. It gets very busy between 12 and 3.

Although the entrance (parking lot) might make you want to turn around, but the beach itself is really nice and pretty. You can rent snorkeling equipment and book water sports, as well as buy drinks. If you are staying in Naousa, would definitely recommend this beach.
