Photo and description
The picturesque island of Paros is located in the Aegean Sea and is part of the Cyclades archipelago. Paros is famous for its many gorgeous beaches and beautiful coves.
Golden Beach (Chrissi Akti) is considered one of the best beaches on the island and is located on its southeast coast. It got its name from the fine yellow sand covering the beach. Its tiny crystalline particles reflect sunlight to create an interesting shimmering effect. The length of the beach is approximately 700 m. There is a small village of the same name nearby.
Golden Beach, like many Greek beaches, has been awarded an honorary "blue flag". Nice fine sand and crystal clear waters, as well as convenient entry into the water make this place quite popular. Since there is no natural shade, it is better to rent a sun umbrella and sun lounger. There are also bars and restaurants on the beach serving traditional Greek cuisine. There is a fairly good selection of hotels and apartments in this part of the island, so there should be no problems with accommodation, but it is still better to book places in advance. Getting to Golden Beach is quite simple, as there is a regular bus service to the main towns of the island.
Golden Beach is very popular with windsurfing and kitesurfing enthusiasts, as this place is famous for its ideal windy conditions. Every year in August, the World Surfing Championship is held here, which attracts many famous surfers of world renown. For amateur beginners who want to try their hand at this sport, there are surfing schools. There are also clubs for surfers, as well as rental of special equipment.
