Paros Island in Greece - Parikia beach

Paros Greece - getting around on the Island and photos of Places to Visit.

Apart from excellent walking opportunities there are a variety of ways to go off sightseeing on the Island ie buses, taxis, car-hire, scooters and so on.


Buses. The bus services on Paros are excellent value with many fares just costing a few Euros - and the buses do cover nearly all of the island. They are not however that frequent to some destinations during the early the early part of the holiday season (i.e. May and into early June) however the probability is that they increase services as things get busier.
Taxis. Plenty of taxis available at Parikia and several always around at Naoussa - elsewhere on the island you only have to get a tavern or shop owner to ring one up for you if you do not have your mobile with you. For being dropped off at a particular location to start a walk remember to take a map so you can show the driver where you want to go and then as always remember to agree the price. There are meant to be fixed rates for certain specific destinations for instance Parikia to Naoussa.
Hire Cars/bikes/scooters etc. Fortunately we did not need a hire car - the bus and taxi services were much better value and got us where we want to go. Scooter hire was allegedly only a few Euros a day but we think this could not have given you any worthwhile insurance cover. A popular hire seemed to be getting a Quad bikes - there were lots of people whizzing around on them so this must be the next "in" thing.
The Roads on Paros. The roads generally seemed to be well surfaced - in fact you might consider having a hire car just to have the pleasure of driving on a non-potholed road - something which you often cannot do at home in England due to the often appalling road-surfaces. The tracks vary enormously on drivability (using a car) - generally speaking if it looks pretty rough at the start of a track it will probably get much worse further in. Paros does have an extensive network of tracks many of which are not on any of the maps and some tracks just stop in the middle of nowhere after a few kms.

Paros Flora. Even by late May the sun was taking it's toll and plants were drying up - nevertheless there were still some splendid flowers and shrubs to be seen especially high up in the hills. The hillsides must have been fantastic earlier.
