We've scoured the globe for spots where the temperatures rarely (if ever) drop below 50 degrees, regardless of the season. One of our personal favorite warm winter vacations, Paros is one of the lesser-known isles in Greece's Cyclades. And while it's not as popular as, say, Santorini or Mykonos, the island has no shortage of beaches, whitewashed hillside towns, and hidden swimming caves to discover and explore.
What is Paros Best Known For?
Lefkes is a picturesque mountain village in Paros that is famous for its traditional character. Lefkes had been the first capital of Paros which was built by immigrants from Crete and locals who were looking for protection against pirate attacks.
When to visit-
Peak travel is summer (Jun–Sep), when the weather is warm and dry. May and Oct are quieter, with occasional rain but weather that's often warm enough for beach activities. The Feast of the Dormition of the Virgin (Aug) is an important religious holiday, drawing pilgrims for Orthodox masses and a colorful procession in the streets of Parikia. The Barbarossa Pirate Festival (Naoussa, Aug) features reenactments of medieval pirate raids, fireworks and an all-night party. Few visit the island in mild, rainy winter (Nov–Feb).
