Greece 2012: Exploring Paros V

Date: 25 June 2012

Location: Paros

Travellers: Helen, Dom, Josie & Lloyd

We left lovely Lefkes today, but not before one last stroll into the village...

... and juice, coffee and baklava at our favourite kafeneon under the trees.

We then drove to Naoussa, seaside town on the north coast of Paros, and checked into our little little apartment, our base for the next couple of days.

Naoussa is a popular holiday destination and seemed considerately more built-up than the other villages we'd visited on Paros.

Our accommodation was a ten minute walk away from the harbour and town centre.

We took a drive around the peninsula on the east of Naoussa. The coastline here was quite stark and rocky, the sea a brilliant blue.

Our lunch spot was in Ampelas, at a little taverna right next to the sea.

Delicious watermelon to share for afters.

After lunch we walked down to the beach at Ampelas and swam and sunbathed the rest of the afternoon away.

Later, in the evening, we walked into Naoussa. Very attractive harbour.

It amused me to see the cats waiting on the quayside - as the fishermen cleaned their nets they threw scraps to the hungry kitties.
