Drios

Drios is a small village that extends along the southeast coast of Paros, nestled among low vegetation and crops. There is a small pier on the shore and a narrow beach, with small pebbles, that widens nearer to the pier. There are a few hotels and rooms, some of which are right on the sand of the beach. Drios was the ancient port of Paros.

Drios is still one of the greenest villages on Paros, with impressive (compared to the Cycladic norm) clusters of trees and large sea pines on both beaches on either side of the port. Sites in the area include the cave of the demons with stalagmites and stalactites, the lakes of Drios and the ancient shipsheds, where ships were housed in ancient times. Aspro Chorio is a small, charming settlement above Drios.

There are several small and large sandy beaches near Drios, to suit every taste. Lolantonis, a lovely, sandy beach with turquoise water and large sea pines is to the south of the village. There are taverns on the hill above the beach with a very nice view.
