Paros' attractive inland offers pleasant and easygoing hikes in a beautiful and peaceful landscape. There are not many who know that Paros is a perfect hiking island and one do hardly ever encounter other hikers.

Two of the best hiking routes starts from Lefkes, one follows the old Byzantine path down to Piso Livadi, from there you can continue along the coast until you reach the Golden Beach where a refreshing swim is waiting. Hiking route number two from Lefkes ends in Aliki where a cold beer is waiting.

A third hiking route takes you from Naoussa to Parikia, along the route you will pass the marble quarries of Marathi and the nunnery Moni Thapsana that women only get to visit. The nunnery is young, it was built as late as 1935.

I can also recommend the easy hiking routes in the Cultural Park of Paros.

If you are going to hike on Paros, I recommend Anavasi's blue map (1: 40,000) which describes a variety of hikes on Paros, easy as difficult. Terrain Maps is another Greek cartographic company specialized in hiking maps. They have a map of Paros, the scale is 1:40,000 and do also describe many hiking routes. Both maps are available for purchase on Paros.
