Perfect your trip to Paros with a stay on one of the island's many beaches—and there are plenty to choose from. No matter which fishing village or sweep of sand you choose, enjoy spas, sea views, and pools amid Cycladic architecture and sea breezes that will have you floating away in no time.

The Agnanti Resort Hotel appeals to travelers of all stripes with its location in Marcello beach, close to the main Parikia town. Its pleasant cove is protected from the wind, keeping it smooth for sunning and swimming, and the five Cycladic buildings look out over the water and across to Parikia, set amidst landscaped gardens and elegant common spaces.

Take advantage of the playground and playroom for families, basketball court, outdoor gym, or tennis court, then lounge on the expansive terraces. Follow the outdoor pool into its miniature cave, or visit the hotel restaurant for any meal of the day to enjoy the catch of the day and dishes made with ingredients from the hotel gardens. When you want to explore, a free daily minibus runs between the hotel and Parikia.

Ostria Studios & Apartments

In the Aliki harbor in southern Paros, you'll find the Ostria Studios & Apartments. With rooms that can sleep up to five people and sandy beaches nearby, the Ostria is ideal for families.

Spend the day on the shore, then the evening strolling the promenade in the fishing village of Aliki. The location is also convenient for boat trip departures, so you can minimize your need for transfers around the island. Enjoy ocean views from your room or head to the seaside to relax on the sunbeds or at the all-day bar.

Senia Hotel

The studios, apartments, and suites that comprise the Senia Hotel sit in the fishing town of Naoussa. The white and blue-accented Cycladic-style lodgings can sleep up to six people, making it a convenient stop for families.

For those who aren't looking for family time, one of the pools is adults-only. Start off with the breakfast buffet, then lounge on a sunbed savoring one of the international cocktails from the pool bar. Come dinnertime, the restaurant serves creative Mediterranean cuisine using products from local farms.

Three-star Iris Boutique Hotel is also in Naoussa, just a two-minute walk from Pepper beach and five minutes from the center of town with its tavernas and shops. There are a total of 15 rooms decorated in the Cycladic style, seven of which offer a sea view.

There's space for parties of all sizes here, with rooms ranging from double to quadruple sizes. The patio offers a breakfast buffet in the morning, featuring Greek classics like puff pastry, cheese, honey, and yogurt. It transforms into a comfortable spot to read or socialize with a drink or ice cream later in the day. If you're feeling more adventurous, book a boat trip, horseback ride, or other excursions with the help of the hotel staff.

Yades Suites & Spa

Find seaside serenity in Naoussa at the Yades Suites & Spa, a five-minute walk from the harbor. Each of the 12 rooms has a private sea-view veranda and its own decorating style, with some including hot tubs. Meanwhile, the onsite spa offers time in the hydrotherapy and steam rooms along with massages and holistic treatments.

Breakfast is served in your room at a time of your choosing. Then set out to explore the rest of the island, whether it's into town, out to the beach, or onto a sea excursion with the help of the hotel staff, who can book car or motorcycle rentals, day cruises, and restaurant reservations.

Saint Andrea Resort

The Saint Andrea Resort, also in Naoussa, is a haven for travelers searching for a contemporary stay close to the nightlife. The area is more rocky than sandy, so sea views won't necessarily pair with beach time here, but it's close to Naoussa, Kolymbithres Beach, and boutique shops and restaurants.

The 56 rooms include distinctive modern decor, art, and amenities in soothing seagrass tones amid stone paths. Hop in the pool, then relax in the sun or shade at the poolside or lobby bars. Stop in the Anastasia restaurant for innovative cuisine, or schedule a massage or bike tour depending on your energy level for the day.

Parilio Hotel

Find a luxury retreat at the Parilio Hotel. The self-described "33-suite retreat" is filled with the characteristic Cycladic lines and geometry, with rooms in a soothing neutral palette accented by natural materials, funky textiles, and contemporary Greek design pieces.

Its position in the northwest corner of the island puts it a bit farther from the main town of Parikia, about a 15-minute drive away, and also inspired the architecture and design elements of the hotel, creating a unique experience. Suites include amenities such as a private jacuzzi, terrace, or pool. Head to the Elios Spa for a holistic treatment using natural island resources, then take a gastronomic journey alongside the native landscaping at the hotel restaurant.

Poseidon Hotel

Resort-style five-star Poseidon Hotel sits on a sandy beach ideal for families in search of sea, sun, and sports or couples who want a beach enclave of their own. Its spot along Chrissi Akti, "Golden Beach," is roughly 16 miles (25 km) from the port.

Spacious rooms with views of the sea and beach are decorated in muted colors and traditional furniture and all offer private verandas. Take a dip in one of the two swimming pools, each equipped with its own pool bar, or go for a meal at the all-day Poseidon restaurant. Relax in the hammam and jacuzzi in the spa or get sporty at the fitness center and tennis court. Heading to the beach doesn't mean missing out on amenities, as there's also the Tzitziki Beach Bar truck.
