Motor scooter/Electrical plug

by yvr

Are motor scooters plentiful for rent on Paros? Is an international drivers license needed for a scooter rental? Regarding electrical plugs. I have a European, round 2 pin plug, is this valid for use in Greece?

Re: Motor scooter/Electrical plug

Scooters are plentiful on Paros and fairly cheap. I think I paid 8 euro/day in June for the least-powerful one with automatic transmission. Very easy to use. I'm pretty sure you'd have to leave your passport with them if you didn't have an IDL. You can take the scooter to Antiparos by going to the little ferry port of Pounta on the west end of the island. You and the scooter costs 2.5 euro for the 15 minute journey. The local ferry leaves every half-hour all day long.


Your round 2-pin adapter is what you need in Greece.

Thanks for the information, it is greatly appreciated. Might get an Int'l DL however, as I don't relish leaving my passport with anyone.

IDL is not necessary.

Travel Tips for Paros

Paros - a must see in the Cyclades

by jenn5179

If someone had one day to spend in Paros, I would tell them to spend it in Naoussa.

The beaches, the shopping, the fishing boats all around are parts of what made it my favorite island in the Cyclades Paros was gorgeous... Not as touristy as Santorini, but the Naoussa area was beautiful and full of things too do!

Great seafood, and lots of restaurants off the water... Beautiful beaches (rent a scooter and head up to Monestierri Beach, and then one day over to Santa Maria - they are both fantastic

No need to stay in a hotel with a pool, riding the scooter around to the different beaches provided the best site seeing of all. (We stayed at Kanales, with a gorgeous pool, that we did not go in once! Next time we are staying at Leonardo Apartments)

As you enter the main tourist area in Naoussa, there is a shop called Tantanhc - owned by a Paros native who prides himself on carrying home decor and (tasteful) souveniers from all over Greece - hand-blown glass, religious items, I picked up 6 handpainted jewelry boxes as well as a lantern! Plus, the owner will ship anywhere so you do not have to worry about dragging your breakables around with you!

Also, in the main area we went to a restaurant called Romantica, where we ordered a platter of the most incredible lamb chops (pidakia) that I have ever had

We went to a seafood place one night, about 15 minutes from the main area, call Christiana's (not sure of exact spelling!) where the father fishes and the son runs the restaurant where they serve up barbouni, scorpina, lobster, and a host of traditional Greek dishes!

Beaches....Farangas

by kia81

Farangas is situated on the opposite side of Noussa, so when it's too much windy in Noussa or Parikia, in this beach you will find calm seawater.
Farangas is a small town with two beaches, one is easily reachable and it's full of people and beach bars and music...but the one I'm showing in the photo is beautiful and wild. The only negative matter is the temperature of water: too much cool!!!
The wild beach is visible from the main road, but it's reachable only with the scooter for the first 500 m. Then you have to continue on foot for 150 m. You will find the paradise; golden and soft sand, very few people and clear seawater. But remember that here there is no beach bars, so you have to take with you something to drink and to eat.

a step down...

by margaretvn

After our upgrade to the 4 star hotel on Naxos the 2 star hotel where they were rebuilding on Paros was a bump back to earth.

Paros is the third largest island of the Cyclades (Naxos and Andros are larger). Parikia is the islands capital and port and it stands on the site of an ancient city. In the centre is the church of Ekatonapillani. It dates from the 6th century and is one of the most important Byzantine monuments in Greece. It is mentioned in many legends and is dedicated to the Dormition of Our lady. In the town are the remains of a Venetian castle. A lovely place to visit is Naoussa, which is a lovely little seaside port with shops along narrow alleys. Naoussa is considered to be a “hot spot” on the island…. The place to be seen. There are several nice places for coffee or lunch
