Hidden paradise beach at Kolimpithres in Paros

One of the best beaches you will want to swim in is the tiny little beach called Kolimpithres (or Kolimvithres) in Paros. I’ve been there again and again and again and every time I admire the crystal clear water, the remoteness of the location and the moonlike landscape, rock formations which look like the moon, weirdly shaped and scarved. The beach is close to Naousa; either drive or take a bus but if I remember correctly there is also a boat from Naousa that can take you there in days when it is not too windy.

The water is crystalclear; I stress that and I push my friends (especially the foreign ones) to look for that remote tropical beach when they visit Greece (and not just dive in the first beach the see). Needless to say, the earlier you are there the better for you! It is a tiny beach and can very quickly become crowded! You are going to need to rent an umbrella and seats there unless of course you carry your own. That was the only downside I found last time I visited; the beach bar is quite expensive with slow service and old equipment but..if you go there with your own equipment, just forget about it.

Hope you like the photos! It’s first time I didn’t split the photos and I decided to post all of them, just to devote a whole post to this beauty!

Getting the summer feeling at Naousa-Paros

Not a bad view, however this was the windy side of the island.

Ignoring electronic timetables and going instead for the traditional handwritten one 🙂

This windmill is in Paroikia, not Naousa, at the port, if I recall correclty.

When we visited Paros, we once again stayed in Paroikia , however most of our time we spend it in Naousa. Naousa is full of cafes, bars and beautiful small alleys where you can hide, have a coffee and cool down. Above you can see pictures of both while we were wandering on a hot day, and I will slowly post more pictures of both places!

That sunset…

I cannot hide that I love silhouette photos, even the landscape ones.

Busy sea…so many tourists, so many ships..

Right after sunset this windmill turns into a lively cocktail bar!

Ain’t timing great?

Santorini may be the top greek island to watch the famous sunset but personally I experienced majestic sunsets in Naxos and Paros. In Paros specifically, we revisited the local old windmill that is placed on a hill and has view of the whole town and is also converted into a lively cocktail bar. No need to say more, watching the sunset was pure magic as the sun went down slowly, turned all shades of yellow-orange-red and dived into the sea, right when a ship was in front of it. Finishing touch was the cocktails on the bar with the view of the town’s lights. What a wonderful way to end a holiday day!

Summer mood in Koufonisia

In the past years, I often heard that many of my friends aimed to visit the small island Koufonisi (there are 2, one of which uninhabited), and I decided after all these years to see for myself. It is amazing how such a tiny island can leave such a great impression on you. Of course, Santorini is extraordinary, of course Naxos is one of the best islands I have visited and I can go on for hours…but this tiny gem was something else. I have to warn you though..do not go if you are looking for parties and fancy lifestyle. You choose this island for the isolation, for the calmness, for the ‘pool’ like turquoise water and ‘hard to find’ internet connection. Yes, for some reason, being away from civilization just for a day was the highlight of our holidays. And we promised to ourselves to go there again.

I start with just 4 pictures and will go on posting more! I hope you like the colour of the water, it was really impressing!
