Paros is one of our favourite Greek islands, as it is ideal for a different group of visitors, from younger that is looking for fun and nightlife to families but also adventure seekers!
- Personally, I book all my hotels in Paros through Booking.com, as nowadays it includes many apartments, just like Airbnb and it easier and more reliable.
- Paros is very well connected with Piraeus and with some other islands, like Naxos (you can find our travel guide here!), but also Santorini and Mykonos. With Ferryhopper you can check and book all the possible itineraries!
- Naoussa has many restaurants and great bars and nightlife. Parikia has more shopping, but Naoussa is more picturesque!
- Best Beach Resorts in Paros: Golden Beach Hotel
- Best Boutique Hotels in Paros: Hotel Senia
- Best Luxurious Hotels: Summer Senses Luxury Resort (5* star)
- Best Budget Hotel: Akteon Hotel
- Best value for money: Apollon Boutique Hotel
- The best beaches are Kolymbithres, Golden Beach, Santa Maria, and Faraga Beach. Most beaches are easy to get to by bus but renting a car does allow you to see more of the island in a short amount of time.
- Antiparos is a nice daily trip from Paros. You can get the boat from Parikia or Punta beach. The island is very small with beautiful beaches and great food.

We gathered the best hotels in Paros, but firstly let’s point out what are the best areas that you should look for.
Where to Stay in Paros
Parikia: It is the capital of the island and the main harbour. On one side of the road, there are many restaurants, cafes, bars and on the other a long beach. You will also find narrow alleys with great shops and energy! It’s a good place to stay if you want to be in the centre of it all or you want to be close to the port (you can catch the ferry to Antiparos from there). But it is not so picturesque and quiet as other parts of the island.
Naoussa: If Parikia is the capital of the island, Naoussa is the heart! With many bars and taverns, Naoussa is also a fishing village with many fishing boats on its picturesque small harbour. We totally recommend going there during the sunset. Totally amazing!
Lefkes: It is a mountainous village with great character. If you don’t mind to be a little bit far away from the sea, then its beauty will reward you! A tiny little town situated in between mountains that shows you the real side to the Greek islands.
Piso Livadi: This is another small fishing port with nice taverns and quite calm. In case that you won’t stay eventually there, you have to visit it for the food!
Drios: This also another relatively quiet fishing village with delicious food and nice surroundings! Don’t forget to check also the Aspro Chorio is very close to Drios.

The hotel is very beautiful and clean and the whole architecture of the rooms and the lobby is great. Very good location, as it is a walking distance from Paroikia centre.

I like this hotel! It is so close to the beach that you can listen to the waves of the sea from your balcony. It is also close to Golden Beach (5-10′ minute walk). But the strong point of this hotel is the host Petros who will help you with anything! Check the prices here!

The location is very close to the port, the waterfront, the bus station and all the services a traveller would want.

An excellent hotel with a wonderful pool and a delicious breakfast. It is around 15-20 minute walk to the centre of Naousa, so it would be better if you had transport. The view of the sea from the rooms are really marvellous! Check the prices here!
The view from the room over the port is pretty amazing. The breakfast is very delicious with a variety of foods, like spinach pies, greek yoghurt and many more local products.
It is located on the other side of the port and it was very quiet and peaceful, as it is away from the main shopping area, which means that it is about a 20min walk into the main town. Check the prices here!
This is probably the best budget hotel that I recommend. It is located, right on the Logaras beach and it offers great sea views. Good cleaning service. There is also a bus station is a few minutes walk, which always is a plus if you don’t have any transport. Check the prices here!
