Paros island is situated west to the island of Naxos, almost in the centre of Cyclades and it has about 10000 inhabitants and 120km coastline. The island of Paros is known for its white marbles that have been excavated since the ancient times. Paros is also known for the perfect weather conditions it offers to windsurfers.
Paros has numerous beaches including Chrissí Aktí (Golden Beach, Greece – famous for its windsurfing conditions) near Drios on the east coast, at Pounda, Logaras, Piso Livadi, Naousa Bay, Parikia and Agia Irini. The constant strong wind in the strait between Paros and Naxos makes it a favored windsurfing location.
