Paros Monastiri beach
Monastiri Paros: Monastiri Beach (the beach of the monastery of Agios Ioannis) is located a couple of kilometres after the beach of Kolimbithres, in a small rocky bay surrounded by huge rocky hills.
This beach lies in the Agios Ioannis Bay and if you look up to your right you can see the Monastery (hence the two names for the beach). To your left lie some imposing rocks. This beach is teeming with sun loungers and busy.
The water stays at waist level for a good 100 metres and there is good opportunity for snorkeling. The sand is surprisingly deep and very sludgy. This beautiful sandy beach has crystalline waters and is very popular for its beauty, so it can get really crowded during July and August. It is also known to be a famous spot where yachts come to moor.
Sun beds and umbrellas can be rent from the huge tavern overlooking the beach and water sports facilities are also available. In summer, various events are organized on Monastiri Beach such as concerts, beach parties, various contests, etc. This beach is reachable from the asphalted road passing nearby or by boats, leaving regularly from the harbour of Naoussa.
