Beautiful Parasporos Beach, just 3 km south of Parikia, is justifiably one the most popular beaches on the island of Paros. Tucked in a sheltered bay, the long, sandy beach offers an ideal swimming, sunbathing and sporting locale prized by both residents and visitors alike. Parasporos Beach offers all the amenities one could desire for an idyllic seaside afternoon: wide golden sands, numerous sun beds and umbrellas, volleyball nets, public showers, two seaside tavernas, two beach bars and plentiful parking – all overlooking the gentle, ink-blue Aegean Sea. The beach is popular enough to always guarantee thriving throngs of devotees on all of Paros’ typical cloudless sunny summer days -- and many Parasporos beach-goers stretch their afternoon out to evening and enjoy the beautiful sunset views afforded from the scenic west-facing location before adjourning to one of the nearby tavernas or larger beach bars for sunset drinks, dinner or dancing that often lasts late into the night. Parasporos Beach is easily accessible from town by car, moped or frequent bus service.
Comprised of two consecutive beaches, Psaraliki I and Psaraliki II, Psaraliki beach is a family friendly sandy beach with shallow waters ideal for family breaks and water sports activities. Pedal boats, windsurfing, swimming, snorkelling and beach tennis are available as well as a number of picturesque taverns and music clubs.
The beach of Agios Fokas is situated at a distance of some 6 kilometers far from Paroikia at the North, very close to the homonymous cape at the entrance of the bay of Paroikia. Very close to the beach it is found the small twin church of Agios Sostis and Analipsi, where on the feast of Analipsi it takes place a local feast (“panighyri”).
