The village of Naoussa op Paros|
On our first visit to Paros, we stayed in the village Naoussa. In itself, this is a very picturesque fishing village with a beautiful harbour with the typical Greek colored boats, nice restaurants and all kinds of things that look good on your holiday snaps. Unfortunately there is no really good beach in the village itself (there is one but it tends to catch some wind) and in the evening it really gets very busy. Apparently, everyone in the village leaves during the daytime in search for the beaches in the area. In the evening everyone comes back and you stumble over the people. Naoussa is located in the north of Paros and is dominated by a large church. In many guides, the village is described as smaller and more beautiful than Parikia, but this is a matter of opinion. If I could choose myself I would prefer to stay in Parikia. The village is overflown and it is very touristic (especially in the evenings as I just said, it is okay in the daytime), not just during the high season. There will, of course, be people who do not agree with me and that will send me an e-mail to tell so, but this is my humble opinion, and there are others. You have to decide for yourself which has your preferance. It is a nice village I agree to go and have a look around because it is indeed colourful and picturesque. In the center of town is the old white chora, there is a nice promenade with tavernas and the harbour with the kaiks and the old Venetian houses in the background will do well in your photo album. Through the centre runs a (in the summer dried out) river. Here you will find the bus station of the village. There are boats and buses to a number of better beaches in the immediate vicinity of Naoussa, including the beach of Santa Maria.
