Food and Drink

On an island like Paros, food is more than just sustenance—it’s also an integral part of the culture. Savour these unforgettable culinary experiences rooted in local tradition and infused with fresh ingredients.


Succumb to the allure of "skordalia", a mouth-watering garlic dip that accompanies most meals, or indulge in "souvlaki", tender skewers of grilled meat served with warm pita bread. Do try the local wines of the region, a sublime accompaniment to any meal.


Sample "baklava", a sweet pastry layered with filo and chopped nuts, a perfect treat to enjoy with a strong Greek coffee in one of the local, sun-drenched cafes.

Destination Essentials

Although Paros is a fetching destination all year round, the optimum time to visit for an idyllic family holiday is the shoulder season (spring, early summer, or autumn). During these time, the weather condition is just perfect, ranging from a cool 15°C in early spring to a warm 25°C in September.

The summer months of July and August constitute the high season. Hot and dry weather prevails with temperatures fluttering between 25°C and 30°C. Though the island gets crowded, the summer also brings the island's charm to the fore.

Paros unwinds during the low season, from November to March, with fewer accommodations and cooler weather. However, this period provides a unique opportunity to discover Paros' tranquillity and engage more deeply with its local lifestyle.


Crowning Paros is a collection of beaches each boasting its own unique allure. These inviting seaside havens brim with both tranquillity and adventure.

Voutakos Beach

Rarely crowded, Voutakos beach offers a serene escape, while providing stunning vistas of the Aegean. Perfect for those seeking a relaxing experience with an isolated charm.

Plaka Beach
