With a little bit of everything you'd expect from an island in the Cycladic archipelago, Paros is dusted with sugar-white villages, blue-domed churches, buttermilk-coloured beaches and taverna tables overlooking quaint fishing harbours. The island's nightlife is less flashy than neighbouring Mykonos while the views from the island's ring road, which traces its way around the lace-like coastline, can't be beaten. From its bustling capital, complete with ancient remains, to the pretty fishing village of Naoussa and rural villages such as Lefkes – whose charm is increased by the welcome lack of crowds
– there is plenty to explore on this gorgeous Greek island. The views from the island's ring road are stunning, and the winding streets of the charming village of Lefkes can't be missed, if you are looking to escape the crowds. Wander through the winding, cobbled streets in search of ancient relics, head off for wonderful walks and hit the water for windsurfing, kite-surfing and diving offshore.
