I 'm living in Paros island, which is located on the Cyclades complex. From Athens is 4 hours with the normal boat and from here you have the chance to visit plenty of islands around as Paros is the main connection route to most of them
You can find all you need here in Paros, from quite sandy beaches to ‘fun at the beach’ with water sports and beach-bars to enjoy all day long at more than one locations on the island! A big variety of accommodation will give you the chance to get what you want and enjoy the Greek hospitality! I don't need to mention about food or going night out!! You can visit also historical ruins, temples from the ancient era, castles from the pirates age, picturesque villages and many more!
