Naoussa Village in Paros

Information About Naoussa

Naoussa Paros: The beautiful picturesque fishing village of Naoussa is located in a huge bay in the northern part of Paros, 10 kilometres east from the capital, Parikia.

Naoussa is considered to be one of the prettiest villages in the Cyclades and, despite the tourism development, this lovely village has manage to keep its authenticity, its traditional character and its charm, with its whitewashed and flowered little houses and its tiny whitewashed churches and chapels, surrounded by labyrinth-like narrow, stone paved streets.

The lovely village of Naoussa is built amphitheatrically around a tiny picturesque port where little colourful fishing boats called caiques moor and remains of a Venetian castle can still be seen, creating a unique and enchanting atmosphere.

Little taverns and ouzeries are boarding the port, giving a friendly and traditional atmosphere. The main square offers much you will require in terms of buses, cash withdrawal and there is an information booth in the corner of the square. Though Naoussa is much quieter than Parikia, it offers several animated bars and nightclubs, opened until dawn.

Naoussa, Paros is also famous for its numerous beautiful golden beaches, filling the natural bay such as Kolymbithres Beach, Agios Ioannis, Agioi Anargyroi, Monastiri and many more. From the wildest and more secluded beaches to the fully organized ones, those beaches are ideal for everyone, covering all tastes and needs. All of them can be reached by footpaths, asphalted roads or by caiques (small fishing boats) from the port.

Naoussa also has many beautiful churches to visit such as the main church, the Church of the Assumption of the Virgin, which is located on the highest spot of the village or the Church of Agios Nikolaos (Saint Nicholas) which houses an interesting Byzantine Museum exposing fine and valuable 13th century icons.

Every 23rd of August, nine days after the Assumption of the Virgin, a great festivity is celebrated in Naoussa, during which a representation of the pirates raids is performed by the young people of the village, fireworks are thrown while dancing, eating and drinking continues until dawn. Many archaeological sites and monuments can be found in the area which are well worth visiting.

Beautiful villages
You cannot visit Paros and not even pass by Naoussa. Naoussa is a beautiful village, located on a huge bay, in northern Paros. As you can easily understand from the hundreds of boats at the bay, this is a fishing place. Wherever you go in Naoussa, bay, narrow streets, churches, beach, still this is one of the best places in Paros. While there, you can take a look at the Wine Museum, and if you are visiting Paros in summer, ask the locals about the dates of the fish and wine festival! Very close to Naoussa, there is the Paros Aqua Park. The park is very big and it was a nice surprise to see that they are actually using sea water! I don't remember the ticket fare, but I think it was not that expensive. If you like quiet villages, away from the crowded villages, Lefkes is a small village in the center of the island. Away from the sea, provides a very cozy environment, with Greek traditional coffee shops and taverns.

Sophisticated and vivid
Do not have any doubt that Naoussa is the best village on Paros. Parikia, the capital, is also fine but it gets too noisy sometimes. But Naoussa gives another sense: more picturesque, more sophisticated, more vivid with the bars around the small port. I honestly adored this village, it has a secret power to make you feel optimist.

Naoussa was spectacular
Village of Naoussa was spectacular, beaches were lovely on the island, nightlife was quite hard to find, didn't find any nightclubs in fact. Aqualand was fantastic. Taxis were not freely avail and to get back to our hotel was always a hassle. So I recommend that you bring your driving licence as we wanted to rent quad bikes but didn't have our licences with us. There was one italian restaurant in Naoussa -can't remember its name but it had the nicest italian food I've ever tasted; there wasn't enough asian food available though.

Good spot to watch people
One of the many restaurants around the port of Naoussa. Good food, kind of more elegant than the usual taverns, but the best is the spot. A good place to watch the people go up and down.

Great location horrible food
The spot is what attracts people to this restaurant but when the food arrives you are in for a dissapointment. Everything is overpriced but very very average. So is the service. I've had spectacular eats at other more modest places in the Greek islands at a fraction of the price.
