They say that a beautiful and sexy beach is in the eyes of the beholder. However, few will argue that Kolymbithres beach is not one of the most alluring Greek seaside hangouts. Located on the Cycladic island of Paros, this is one of the most unusual beaches you will ever visit. The place to be seen on Paros. Not a beach for the prudish. Anything goes on Kolymbithres, including the consumption of large quantities of the chalky Greek liquor ouzo.
In Greece, all age groups meet at the beach. You will find all walks of life soaking up the sun. Due to its shallow waters, couples, families, young people, old people, local Greeks and travelers, everyone wants to take in a beach with stunning views, filled with beach revelers soaking in the rays.
What makes this beach unique is its rugged rock formations. Large Seychelles-like boulders for sunbathers to put themselves on display. Close to Naoussa town, crystal clear water unique rock formations create a breathtaking scenery. Great swimming, pretty shallow for a ways out. One caution if you do not have your own transport, the bus only comes three times as day, but one can always get a taxi.There are 3-4 taverns located in walking distance of the beach, and during high season there is a very organized watersports center for water ski, kayaking, banana boats, and more. Most of the coves are organized, with sun beds and parasols for hire.
Visiting Greece during September-October guarantees you fewer people, or you just may be the only people on the beach. If you are coming in the heavily traveled summer months and if you enjoy late afternoon swimming, come after 5pm, as the ocean is still “sauna like,” but the crowds tend to die down.
Grab some friends and have a barbecue on the beach.
