By this time wind is perfect for some sailing, the temperature is great and the last bit of sunlight for the day makes the bay and Naoussa at the background look even more magical!

NOTES

Naoussa Sailing Team offers classes for children and adults at the beach of Kolimpithres in the bay of Naoussa, from March to December.

Hiking around the lighthouse

The monumental rock formations together with the low vegetation of wildflowers, herbs and bushes form a magical setting for an afternoon walk.

Sea kayaking around Antiparos

The sea was calm, so paddling was easy and relaxing, while the proximity to the surface of the sea gave us a unique perspective of the wonderfully blue waters of the Aegean.

Greek Design on the Island – Clothing

Today we are going shopping in Naoussa. We are after some contemporary greek creations.

Pruning vines

February is the month of pruning the vines, so even though the landscape seems a little bit dry, there is a lot of activity going on at Moraitico winery.

Paros on a motorbike

Getting around Paros by bike is easy, since its morphology and roads make it one of the most accesible and bike friendly islands.

Coffee & Snack in Naoussa

After finishing off what has to be done, it ‘s time for a coffee and a quick snack, before leaving the village.

Hiking & Herbs

The mountains of Paros are full of nature’s pharmacy’s pure products.

A Relaxing Day at Glyfa

After a couple of hours under the sun and a bit of swimming, we moved to the restaurant of the area, only meters away from the beach.

Walking around Ampelas

… a little fishermen village, on the eastern coast of Paros.

Climbing up to Agios Antonios

On such a clear day, the views are stunning!
