There are several places to choose from on this beach if you are looking for umbrellas-sunbeds-bar... we chose one that wasn't all that great but worked. The umbrella was straw, the sunbeds comfy and the sand soft. The water was crystal clean, warm and transparent. The only problem, which turns out to be common in Paros are the little fish... More

Santa maria is an an organized beach where you can enjoy the swim in the clear water and lovely cocktails and drinks from the bar. The food there is great although the salads are a bit small in portion. at 4 in the afternoon, you can enjoy the beach party with great music that lasts till late.

The best beach on Paros. If you do not like music on the beach it's not for you. You can get sun beds to the left and right and there is a big difference because left side there is more music and people whereas right side is a bit more quiet. We choose depending of mood. Service is fine and... More

Santa Maria has two beaches which can be reached on the local bus. Big Santa Maria is a surfing beach ideal for young people, little Santa Maria is a beautiful beach with sun beds and umbrellas perfect for families, it has a couple of tavernas with beach service as well, well worth a visit.

We reached the beach around 1 pm so we had to choose two beds far away from the sea. We chosed to order something to avoid the crowd at the restaurant but the portions were really small and we had to wait long time. The water is nice but the beach is too crowded.

A ice organised each with a couple of bats and restaurants. The water is clean and if you are up for water sports this is the best location to be active!

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.
