Ferry/plane Athens to Paros
Hi, I'll be arriving at Lavrion port (south of Athens) mid morning (a Friday in August) and need to get to Paros. Anyone know if I can get a ferry/plane that same day or need to spend a night in Athens and go the next morning? Are there ferries in the afternoon? Do I need to reserve in advance? Thanks!

The big news is that AirSea Lines is starting daily flights from Lavrio to Paros and other islands.
Also during high season there will be daily high speed ferries from this port to several of the Cyclades islands.
Search around and you will find up-dated schedules.

Travel Tips for Paros
See what it was like a long time ago
See my travelogues about my trip to the islands in 1972 and compare it to today.
As a matter of interest, we tended to eat breakfast and lunch on the beach using fruit, bread, cheese etc that we bought in the local stores. In the evening we would go into town and eat a pretty good meal and then drink local wines and spirits well into the night. All this used to cost us about £0.50p per day.
Monastiri beach take its name from the church that is situated between the two beaches. One is small and quiet, the other one is quite large with a nice beach club that remains open until night. The music is a little bit too loud, but the yogurt with honey and fruits salad is super!!!
the sea is of a light green colour, there is sand and rocks so you can choose if staying between a lot of people or staying alone on a warm rock.
Nice island. Took the overnight boat from athens. A ship had just sunk the day or two before so there were still some press and other stuff when I got there. Was sunny for the first few days, then non-stop rain. Stayed about three blocks from the port and was about 50 feet from a nude beach, for about $7 a night. Rented a scooter and cruised around the island with this girl I met that was also staying around there. Tourist season was more or less done with so it wasn't very crowded.
