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 (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.
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).
