Paros has beautiful countryside for Walks - Greece

Paros Greece and a walk from Prodhromos to Dhrios.

Beautiful houses at Prodhromos, Paros Island, Greece.

Prodhromos to Dhrios one way or there and back walk via some beaches on Paros Island in Greece.

This 12km (20km) walk starts inland at Prodhromos - we started here so that we could have a look round the village which is extremely pretty with narrow marbled streets plus flowers and shrubs on display. This also meant we could then walk on and have a decent look in Marpisa for exactly the same reason. The no.1 bus from Parikia gets you to Prodhromos inexpensively. The walk is quite flat apart from a short climb up to Marpisa - once you get to the coast it's particularly refreshing because of the sea breezes. Note - we walked on another 4km from Dhrios via Dhrios Bay, Cape Pirghos and Lolandonis along the coastal path but if you do this then you have to return to Dhrios for the bus home adding 8km to the walk.
From the bus stop in Prodhromos head right into the village - it's really worthwhile looking round the narrow village streets before continuing the walk. Make your way back to the main road and turn right - walk out of the village soon passing an old well with it's machinery and then a small church on the left.

Continue up the hill towards Marpisa then take a path on the left which heads up into the village. Once in Marpisa it's well worth while having a look round the village - taking note of the location of a large church with a red tiled dome located in the village square. From the church take the road which goes downhill to a junction, turn right and follow the road soon passing derelict windmills. Continue along to the main road junction and turn left - you have to walk a short distance on the main road then at the next junction keep straight ahead but you can now use a footpath on the right hand side of the road.

Simply continue along to walk into the small fishing village of Piso Livadhi with it's beach and tavernas.

From here continue along the main road which goes alongside the beach then when it bends right take steps down to Logharas beach. Continue along the beach and now the walk is simply a question of following the shoreline - the coastal path goes round Cape Pounta and the beaches at Pounda and Mesadha.

The coastal path eventually becomes a track near Tserdhakia and then becomes a road just by New Golden Beach. Follow the road still along the coast - it climbs slightly then when it veers right carry straight ahead on a dirt track - there is a huge holiday complex built up to the sea edge ahead of you. Keep to the left of the buildings and continue along the coast now on a path again - this path passes a small church and rounds the headland of Cape Chone before arriving at Golden Beach. There are tavernas at both ends of Golden Beach - plus the usual sun beds and stuff.

Continue along the beach and at the far end take a narrow path which goes to the left of fields and with tall canes on the left - follow this path via Boudari to finally walk into the small harbour at Dhrios. From Dhrios the coastal path has collapsed so you need to take the small road on the right which heads up via houses - also on the left there is a picturesque taverna and what we think is meant to be a duck pond but there were no ducks..

Once at the main road, turn left and soon arrive at a church and bus stop. Our walk continued since we wanted to go further along the coast but you can of course simply finish the walk here and get the bus back to either Parikia or Naoussa (check which bus is going where).

To continue the walk turn left just past the church and walk back down to the coast, turn right and the coastal path then continues along the shoreline. The path changes into a small sandy track and there are lots of small sandy and shingle tiny coves along here where you can easily stop on for a while. Quite unexpectedly you come across a tiny fishing harbour just before reaching Cape Pirghos - continue along and climb on up to the small church at Cape Pirghos.

The shoreline is really collapsed around here and the path seemed to go through the bottoms of the gardens of various villas instead - nobody yelled at us as we did this so presumably it was ok. From Lolandonis again just follow the coast over a quite rocky but open area to finally arrive at a quite pretty little rocky beach with a large villa perched above it on the far side.
Clearly the cliff had collapsed on the far side of the beach and destroyed the coastal path so we decided that this was as far as we could reasonably go. Therefore we simply retraced our steps back to Dhrios and caught the bus back to Parikia.
