Cultural Park of Paros
The Cultural Park of Paros is located on a peninsula north of Monastiri Beach. The park - opened in 2010 - offers several easy hiking routes suitable for all who wants to try to hike without effort.
The hiking trails are well marked and short.

During the short hike one will pass two beaches (Perikopetra and Tourkou Ammos), a very beautiful lighthouse, an amphitheatre (where concerts are held during the summer) and a large area with beautiful rock formations.
The amphitheater above Monastiri beach.
The beautiful lighthouse in the Cultural Park of Paros was erected in 1847.
Tourkou Ammos beach is one of two beaches in the Cultural Park of Paros.
It takes an hour or two to walk around the whole park, including a swim at any of the beaches. There are not many who know of this beautiful and interesting place. When we have been here we have not met a single person.
One of the many strange rock formations. The same as at Kolymbithres.
The strange geological rock formations.
It is so beautiful!
The information signs at Monastiri looked a little worn on my last visit, and I'm not sure if the park is still maintained. But it does not matter much because everything in the park is still there, and the paths can still be followed.

Lots of Drimia Maritima line the hiking trails.
If you stay in Naoussa and will swim, you will surely visit the beaches of Kolymbithres and Monastiri. Take time to visit the park as well.
