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!

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!

Wandering in the Aegean Sea – part 1

No words for how I appreciated this sun after months of darkness in Scandinavia.

Leaving trails in the water.

Approaching Paros.

In Paros’ port.

And leaving Paros again for the next stop.

Goodbye Paros! Actually, we came back to Paros later, it was our 3rd destination!

Time to get inside the ship and have some coffee!

When we started our holiday last year for a small greek islands tour, we flew to Athens and took a ship from there to our first island Naxos. This is a photo album of our 4 hour route (if I remember correctly), enjoying both sea and sun!

Majestic view at Naxos, Greece

Arriving at Naxos, here is the view that I had from our breakfast room in our hotel. I was overwhelmed by the view and the beauty of this island, I was not expecting it!

We stayed west of the Chora (Naxos capital). The centre was just 10 min walk from the hotel, which has a view of the sea and the main town.

A better view of the walking distance, picture without zoom here.

On the right of the main town you see Portara, this is an unfinished ancient temple, that gathers many tourists during the day. I could not believe the beautiful view. I mean I love Santorini for its majestic view, but this island has nothing to be jealous for! Amazing landscape, beautiful sunsets, great sea!

Greek island emerging through clouds –> Travelling, Photography

In one of my latest flights around Greece, that was a weird picture for me! The small Greek island-mountain emerging out of the clouds on a sunny perfect spring day! Flights should have perfect view like the ones I had on this trip…
