In Paros you have the island for every man. Rich and poor. Dozens of writers, painters, sculptors, musicians and poets consider Paros to be the cultural hub of the Cyclades. Instead of a contrived aesthetic, an authentic flair dominates the scene. There are plenty of beautiful beaches of all different sizes and shapes. There are all sorts of water activities from kayaking to windsurfing and sailing. There are yoga classes, Zen Meditation, dancing lessons and horseback riding on the beaches and hills.The Wind and Kite surfing centers are popular and highly recommended: winds of four Beaufort or higher turn the 700m long Golden Beach on the east coast into a pro-ground swarming with kites and sails where many championships are hosted. Behind the bay, one can glimpse a white mound under the mountain of Kefalos. This is Marpissa, said to be the most beautiful village in Greece. From here for 2km, a byzantine trail stretches up to the flowery mountain village of Lefkes. There are great restaurants and plenty of nightlife including bars that may make you feel like you never left Daytona Beach.
