Nice beach

2nd beach of Sta Maria is more quiet but would even be better without loud music. You can rent Beach beds Undangerous beach for children with nice sea bottoms.

Santa Maria was my no2 favorite in Paros, with Golden beach being the no 1 ;) Amazing sandy beach, no stones, blue waters and not deep. Suitable for families.

Nice place to visit, but definitely not for a long stay. It is recommended to go for a short brake instead a long day stay. Clean water

My fiancé and I spent a few hours on this beach just chilling, soaking up the sun and atmosphere. The beach, if Im not mistaken sees more locals than tourists which is a plus point. Beach chairs with huts are available for rent 6 euros for two. Drinks are not compulsory. We suggest that you go earlier or as early... More

Perhaps this is one of the best if not the best beach in Paros. If it is a bit windy, or you do not like it very crowded, you can try the "Small Santa Maria" or "Mikri Santa Maria" beach. It has a beach bar and a tavern, so you can sit in their sunbeds/umbrellas, and a few trees. It... More

This beach had it all! The sea was fantastic, with very clear waters, not very deep and not shallow, just perfect! A wide range of water sports offered for those who are interested in those. 2 beach bars; one with the loud music and the other one much quitter and with a great music selection of new and old hits,...
