How couples can spend one, two or five days on this Greek Island

Is Paros worth visiting for couples or a honeymoon?

Hey! I’m Jess, and for more than a decade I’ve worked in advertising making commercials for brands like MGM Hotels and Casinos, Southwest Airlines and Expedia. Which, as you can probably (ad)venture a guess, means I love to travel.

This Paros itinerary is for you if you like what I do in a vacation: not-overly-touristy or clubby, affordable activities and a few memorable moments of splurge, really good eating, and taking in the local culture at a leisurely pace. I also love a plan where the key details (i.e., how do I get there?) are sorted out, but leaves from for discovery.

If this sounds like you, then you are in the right place.

I had the pleasure of spending a little over a week on the blue jewel of the Cycladic islands, Paros, in April-May 2023— a second visit there for my husband and I. I’ve put together an audit of Paros, Greece activities, the best beaches in Paros, the best restaurants in Paros, and generally a complete guide to the Greek island for a fabulous couples romantic getaway or honeymoon. If you’re island hopping you can do the highlights (Parikia and Naoussa) in one or two days, or if you have more time, all five days.

Getting there: Athens > Ferry to Paros
