We went on a two week trip to Greece. Our trip started in Athens and we used the ferry system to visit Paros, Mykonos and Santorini. One of our favorite parts of the trip was Paros due to its less touristy vibe, lower prices, and hidden gems like our hotel!

Akrotiri Hotel

akrotiri hotel

Akrotiri was one of the best value hotels we found in Greece. The rates were very reasonable and the rooms were clean, very nice and came with an amazing view. The hotel included homemade breakfast and boasted one of the best staffs around. When we arrived the owner sat down with us, mapped out the entire island, rented us ATV's and gave us ideas what to do on the island.

Distrato Cafe

We stumbled across this restaurant while walking around the town Parikia. We loved the fact that the restaurant was set in the street and shaded under a gigantic tree. We had a couple sandwiches and were introduced to cafe freddos.

Parikia Town

Parikia

Parikia town was about 5 minutes from our hotel and had everything from shopping to eating. The shopping alone in Parikia was best we found in Greece. All the clothing was way more affordable and unique than in other parts of Greece.

Atelier

parikia

Atelier was an authentic sandal company in which we picked each item that was then hand made onto the sandals. We bought 5 pairs for gifts for people back home and everyone still compliments the sandals. This is a must visit. The sandals to make were around 35 euros.

Regaki Live Music Boat Trips

Parikia

Regaki Live Music Boat Tours was the highlight of Paros by far. It was a day boat trip around Paros with stops along the way to go swimming and snorkeling. The food they prepared on the boat was amazing, fresh Greek salads, souvlaki and drinks! We highly recommend this trip in Paros.

Livadia Beach

Parikia

Livadia Beach happened to be one of our favorite beaches in Paros. There are many beaches to choose from however this one stood out to us. Many Paros beaches tend to be windy, this beach is tucked in between two hills and the wind is deflected which leaves this beach calm. The beach chairs were seven euros a piece, this was so cheap for Greece, in islands like Mykonos we paid more than 80 euros. They also had a floating activity park, I am basically a little kid so i loved that.

Siparos

siparos

Siparos was a restaurant I had researched well before our trip. I made reservations ahead of time and I knew it would be amazing. The restaurant had fresh seafood and the perfect sunset. It was a far ride from Parikia on an ATV but well worth it. It was closer to the town Naoussa.

Ragoussis Bakery

Ragoussis bakery

We stopped here for lunch one day. We had no clue what it was but there were tons of people around eating. It was a delicious bakery and we each got sandwiches. This bakery was in Naoussa.

Naoussa Town

Naoussa

Naoussa Town is more well know for the night life and the restaurants. For the top restaurants reservations are a must, we learned the hard way. Every restaurant and bar are geared towards night life and do yourself a favor and go out here at least one night. There arent taxis at all so plan ahead if staying in Parikia.

Agosta

Agosta, Naousa, Greece

Agosta is just an example of the many bars that sit on the ocean. It is a surreal experience and you must visit them either at night or during the day.

Meat Bar

meat bar naoussa

Meat Bar, hilarious name, delicious food. We found this restaurant walking around Naoussa. Nothing fancy but the best souvlaki we had in Greece.

ATV Travel

Paros, greece

We travelled all around Paros on an ATV. It was great because it was cheap, and the island is about 2 hours around. However, at night driving far distances it becomes taxing. Other modes of transport include mopeds and few cars.
