Although Alimos (Kalamaki) marina in Athens is the prime yacht charter base so as to sail the Cyclades sailing area, Galazio Sailing suggests two more bases (Lavrion & Paros port) as an alternative starting point for this area.
Right below, you can see the map and a general description about Paros port in Paros island/ Cyclades islands.

Paroikia port in Paros island/ Cyclades sailing area:

Paroikia (or Parikia) is the capital and the main port of Paros island. Parikia port is a few meters away from the ferry and right in the heart of the town which is full of restaurants, cafes, clubs, supermarkets, groceries and commercial shops. Paroikia port is considered -Galazio Sailing- auxiliary charter base, after Alimos marina and Lavrion port in Athens, for the Cyclades islands.

How to reach in Paros yacht charter base:

Paros (or Parikia) port/ island can be reached either by air or sea.
There is a small airport situated 9km (or 5.5 miles) from the main town which caters domestic flights to and from Athens run by Olympic Airlines on a daily basis. Regular public buses and taxis connect the airport with Paroikia town. As there are NO international flight connections, nor any charter flights to Paros, tourists usually fly to Mykonos or Athens and then choose a ferry to Paros.

During the summer season, there is a frequent connection of ferries/ hydrofoils and catamarans, between Piraeus or Lavrion port in Athens and Paros (about 4-5 hours).

Meeting point & Moorings in Paroikia port/ Aegean Sea:

The Galazio Sailing meeting point, for Paroikia/ Paros port, is directly to your yacht.

Yachts go stern-to or bows-to in the inner harbour or off the outside of the mole in good weather conditions. There are a few mooring lines only inside the dock. Anchors are to be used only on the outer (NW) side of the quay.

Services:

Inside Paros charter base:

  • Water supply
  • Electricity
  • Fuel (oil tanker)

Outside Paros charter base (within walking distance):

  • Local bus terminal
  • Many taxis
  • Banks and ATM cash points

Useful tips:

  • The prevailing wind, in this area, is the Meltemi. It blows from N-NW at force 4-6 Beaufort scale and may reach force 7 or 8 on occasion. The special weather feature is that it is quite difficult to predict for how long the wind will blow. It may blow from 1-3 days or 6 days in a row. In the summer, Paros and the Cyclades are warm places, though rarely too hot
  • Yachtsmen should pay special attention to the rocks of Ag. Spiridhonos, Vouves, Kaki Skala, Peponas on the N-NW side of the Paros port’s entrance. Also, when very strong winds prevail docking in the port is a bit risky and it is advisable to spend the night on the anchor at the North end of Parikia bay and as near the beach as possible
  • No WC showers/ toilets are available in the marina
