The Best Hostels in Parikia on Paros
Paros is a Greek island in the Aegean Sea best known for its beaches and traditional villages. Parikia, the bayside capital, is a boating and transportation hub for the Cyclades region. It's also home to the Panagia Ekatontapiliani, a landmark Byzantine church from the 4th century A.D. The north coast's Kolimbithres is a beach where naturally sculpted rocks form swimming coves. Paros rests nonchalantly in the shadows of the limelight. Long tagged as primarily a ferry hub, its stylish capital, fashionable resort towns and sweet rural villages are all the more charming for their relative lack of crowds and tourists. For holidaymakers looking for Mykonos without the hype and price tag, this might be the spot. But word is spreading. There's plenty to do, with good walks, plus excellent windsurfing, kite-surfing and diving. Geologically speaking, Paros has long been a Greek star; white marble drawn from the island's interior made the island prosperous from the Early Cycladic period onwards. Most famously, the Venus de Milo was carved from Parian marble, as was Napoleon's tomb. With all of these fabulous attributes, Paros is a great place to visit, and, luckily, there are some great, budget-friendly accommodations to use as a base for exploring.
