South of Laggeri beach, one of the most exotic and well-hidden beaches of the island with impressive dunes, tufted salt cedars, and crystal clear waters, there is an amazing sandy "corridor" that joins the mainland with a small hill. From the north side of the thin strip of sand you can kitesurf in a small paradise with amazing shallow turquoise waters!
Bathers Period: July, August
Kid Friendly: Yes
This beautiful "beach" of white sand is probably not the best option for a family day out. It is totally undeveloped so go prepared with food and drinks etc. North of the beach there is great Lagkeri beach, which is popular with nudists, but not exclusively so. Also not undeveloped area.
Access to Laggeri:
The spot is accessible by car or bus to Santa Maria and then a sort walk. Also you can go by boat from Naousa to Laggeri.
Access to Paros:
Arrival by Airplane: Paros Island features its own airport with daily flights to “Eleftherios Venizelos” Athens International Airport and all major International Airports. Paros Airport is located at 10 km from Parikia. From Athens airport, there are daily flights to Paros (half an hour flight). The number of flights and their time-table depend on the time of the year (2 or 3 daily flights in summertime).
Arrival by Ferry/Boat: Paros is also connected to most Greece’s ports by Ferry Boats. It features one port, Parikia port. There are two types of ferries; the high-speed ferry which takes approximately 3 hours and the normal ferry which takes approximately 4 to 6 hours.
The main port to take you to Paros from Athens is in Piraeus. Ferries leave every day, starting at 7 in the morning. From the airport, you can get to Piraeus by taxi or by bus (about 1 hour, depending on the traffic). From Athens, you can get to the harbor by subway (25 minutes from the city center). There are also ferry departures, especially high-speed ferries, from the port of Rafina, which is closest to the Eleftherios Venizelos International Airport, but not so many. If you fly to Athens, you can go to Rafina port by bus or taxi. You can also travel to Paros by ferry from/to main Cyclades Islands.
Local Transportation: When you arrive in Paros, you can either use the public transportation (local bus) or taxis or, even better, rent a car (or a motorbike in the summer). If you land to Paros airport, you can take a taxi or ask the rental agency that your car will wait for you at the airport. If you come by ferry, you can rent a car at the car rental agencies that surround the port.
Arrival by Car: Renting a car or a motorbike to get around is common in Paros and there are many such agencies operating at the airport, the harbor, Parikia and Naoussa.
Arrival by Bus: Travelling by bus within Paros is safe, but it can be tricky as sometimes the timetables change without prior notice. During summer, the buses depart approximately every 1 hour from several towns all over the island. Departure points: Buses leave from Parikia, Lefkes, Dryos, Naoussa, Alyki, Pounta and Kolimbithres, going to several locations around the island and back. During the summer period buses also leave from and to Santa Maria and Ampelas.
Arrival by Taxi: You can also get around Paros by taxis; you will find the main taxi stand in Parikia central square and in Naoussa. Taxis in Paros are pretty expensive. You are advised to ask for the fare before getting in the taxi in order to avoid bad surprises. They can be hailed on the street or arrive by appointment.
