If we ask what the red rings of fun and entertainment, where it beats to modern rhythms of the youth crowd, who visits every year religiously Paros, we will reply without hesitation, in Punda Beach, on the southeastern side of Paros. The Punda Beach Club could be described as the temple of pleasure and entertainment.
On the eastern side of Paros is the sandy and pebbly beach of Molos, which is rather isolated and ideal for those who wish to spend their day at a quiet beach that is edged with trees for shade. Molos Beach is also great for windsurfing, as the wind conditions in the area are perfect for the sport.
The exquisite sandy beach of Glyfades is situated some 15-16 kilometers eastern to the town of Paros (Paroikia) and 5 kilometers southern to Naoussa. No facilities at all are available at the beach, as it is remote enough, far from the public road and access is possible only via a dirt road.
