Paros Yacht Charter

Some would say that the Island of Paros in Greece has not yet attained the same level of popularity of its more “illustrious” siblings that comprise the Islands of Cyclades like Mykonos and Santorini. There are possibly less luxury yachts and superyacht charters that visit these Mediterranean waters. But this can be a good thing. Still, Paros can be popular with Greece yacht charter enthusiasts with discriminating taste and unique preferences.

Indeed, there are still a lot of things to discover and experience in Greece if you go off the mainstream and take the route least travelled to explore the beauty and allure of other holiday destinations such as the Island of Paros. Greek waterways have a wonderful relaxing feel and Paros is no different. In fact, you are missing a lot if you don’t include in your itinerary the Island of Paros, which is considered the heart of Cyclades.

Paros Yacht Charter Possibilities

Among all the islands of Cyclades, Paros Island is the second largest, and its total land area is about 186 sq km. It also features a 120-km stretch of breathtaking coastline. The primary reason why you should explore this Greece yacht holiday destination when you sail to Cyclades is the fact that it is strategically located in the central region of Cyclades, making it a perfect jump-off point when you set sail on board your charter yacht to visit the other island holiday destinations like Syros, Sifnos, Ios and Naxos.

The island is usually accessed by regular tourists through the ferry line that ply the route daily. Yacht charter sailors and tourists onboard their Greece luxury yachts normally visit this island after their holiday jaunts in Heraklion and Piraeus.

Popular Attractions and Important Places

The important places to visit and popular attractions to explore on the Island of Paros are the cities of Marpissa, Lefkes and Naoussa. Old structures and architectural marvels with historical importance could be found in various locations within the Island. Must-see attractions of Paros include the Church of 100 Doors, believed to be the creation of Emperor Constantine and dedicated to St. Helen, St. Constantine’s mother. The architectural orientations and designs are predominantly ancient and give a view akin to the poster picture of Greece. Its rustic villages feature the all too-familiar houses with whitewashed walls and flat roofs.

Yacht charter enthusiasts must also explore the famed marble relics that are scattered in various places in the Island of Paros. This is a strong affirmation of the popularity of the Parian marble during the ancient Greek civilization.

Another favorite gathering place among sailors and tourists traveling to the Island of Paros on board superyachts is the windmill bar in the Pandrossos Hotel. This is the favorite watering hole of sailors, and you should check it out as soon as you arrive in the Island.

Sample the Authentic Greek Flavor

Your Greece yacht vacation around the Island of Paros is not complete if you don’t sample the exquisite and delectable local treats. There are several top restaurants and cafes and bars in various locations on the Island. However, most of the best restaurants and other food venues are located along the waterfront.

Visit the Island of Paros if you want to experience a different brand of yacht charter holiday and discover the other splendors of this popular Mediterranean holiday destination.
