The long, sandy beach of Chrysi Akti is situated at a distance of some 25 kilometers southeastern to Paroikia city in Paros. It is one of the best beaches in the Mediterranean Sea for sea sports and especially windsurfing. It is not without reason that the surfers consider this beach ideal for this sport.
Several alternatives for accommodation are available both at the beach itself and in the area around. And of course you will enjoy good food at the sea front taverns; you will find plenty of them at the beach and in the broader area.
You will also enjoy high standard sea sport facilities, not only for windsurfing, but also for other sports. Among others you can find boats for rent, rescue boats and windsurfing lessons, both for beginners and advanced students. This nice beach with the golden sand (to which it owes its name) is more than 700 meters long and attracts thousands of people, numerous of whom have come to Paros just because of this beach. You will sunbathe on one of the sun beds, or you will relax under the shade of an umbrella (you will find plenty of them), enjoying the spectacle of the surfers and the view of the small islets across, Prassonissi and Dryonissi. And, if you feel like a bit …tired of the sun and sea, the beach bars are ready to offer you refreshments and a new mood.
In case of emergence, the corresponding services of the nearby village of Marpissa (some 3-4 kilometers at the North), or of Paroikia (25 kilometers western to Chrysi Akti) are available for you.
Access to the beach is easy from the town of Paros (Paroikia) by public buses, running frequently, as well as by rented or private car and motorbikes.
