Paros, the island of adventure. The ideal place to engage in sports activities. We have the perfect climate, infrastructure, facilities and the best people to inspire you! Adventure awaits!


In Prodromos of Paros island, the last weekend of July a unique two – day gastronomy  festival takes place in Cyclades,  the CHICKPEA festival. The chickpea ‘ revithada’, is the traditional dish of the village and the festival has to do with the way of its cooking in a wood – fired oven. A non stop real revelry  is held in the narrow streets of Prodromos, with the company of the musicians who play throughout the night!


Sailing the Greek islands elevates holidays to an entirely different level. It is synonymous with absolute freedom of movement and exploration of the inaccessible coves and the deep blue waters of the Aegean.


Horseback riding is an unusual way to experience the beauty of the island, on paths to places unreachable by car or easily accessed by conventional means of transport. These amazing proud animals introduce visitors to the beauties of the mountain and sea. In summer, weather permitting, riders can enjoy a dip in the sea with the horse!


The strait between Paros and Antiparos at Pounta Beach is paradise for kitesurfers. The beach on the west of Paros is preferred by kitesurfers because of the favorable winds in the area. The international kitesurfing competition is held there. The sky fills with colorful kites. Kitesurfers from all over the world gather there and demonstrate their racing skills.


Paros. Island of the wind, sea currents and international fans of water sports. It has been one of the most famous destinations for windsurfing worldwide for many years! The sea passages between Paros and Naxos and Paros and Antiparos ensure it is a No. 1 destination. The welcoming, sandy beaches are in high demand! The winds are strong and the waters challenge you to tame them! The summer winds are gladly received by sport lovers.


The magic of the undersea world unfolds around Paros. Many scuba schools are available to guide visitors through a wondrously magical environment. Short trips and educational experiences with the aim to introduce visitors to the majesty of nature are also offered! Impressive caves, unique shipwrecks, and an extraordinary, effervescent world await discovery, under the watchful eye of serious professional instructors who place the utmost importance on safety.


Το Θαλάσσιο Σκι είναι ένα άθλημα που το συναντάμε έντονα στις ελληνικές παραλίες τα καλοκαίρια μιας και αυτές θεωρούνται ιδανικές για τα ήσυχα, χωρίς δυνατούς ανέμους, νερά τους. Το άθλημα έχει αρκετούς οπαδούς γιατί δίνει μια αίσθηση ελευθερίας και γυμνάζει χωρίς να καταπονεί το σώμα. Στην Πάρο υπάρχει σχολή θαλάσσιου σκι στις Κολυμπήθρες με πολλά χρόνια εμπειρίας στο συγκεκριμένο σπορ.


The marine fauna in Paros is extremely rich. Because of the currents, the marine world is bustling. Bays, capes and reefs are a magnet for underwater life. Grouper, white seabream, perch and bass, octopus and bream, mullet and pandora, amberjack, European barracuda, dentex, crabs, starfish, shells and sea urchins. Fishing in Paros, whether by hook, net, line, angling, trawling or snorkeling, is an interesting experience.

It’s no exaggeration to say that the island of Paros offers ideal conditions for cycling enthusiasts. And when we say “ideal conditions”, we mean for the fans of all kinds of bicycles and cycling. Mountain and off road devotees should opt for a mountain bike and follow some of the hiking trails and dirt roads located inland, from Lefkes to Lagada, the monastery of Agion Theodoron and Aspro Chorio, or Christou of Dasous and Kamari.


Paros has a hiking trail network of approximately 35 km. Hikers will encounter houses, small stone sustainable farm houses, lime, clay, reeds, and seaweed – proof that the simple can also be beautiful. More windmills, watermills, wheel wells, wells, cisterns, threshing floors, and pigeon houses (or “virtues with four corners” according to Elytis) than you could count. Some are organized and well marked, others are old and exciting and some are ideal for adventure lovers.
