Marina of Paroikia is the central marina of Paros island. It is located 9 kilometers northeast of Paros International Airport (IATA: PAS). Parikia is also the main commercial harbor of the island and is considered the central gate to the Cyclades sailing area.
The port provides mooring lines inside. It is a fairly busy and noisy harbor but it is an excellent shelter form the meltemi winds and from the south winds. Mooring stern-to at the quay in Parikia you should pay particular attention to the boulders near the quay, 3 metres depth on the outside of the west end and even less further east.
