The waters are shallow so you can have your kids play without much worrying. And the waters are crystal... More

Great beach with a good bar. Quiet and relaxing, good food and service. Chair and umbrella are rented for $4 euros. Boat to Paros port leaves every 30 mins.

On arrival there's a nice but busy sandy beach with a good beach snack bar serving drinks and simple meals. The killer deal is if you spend min €3 each... More
