Paros vs. Naxos, Greece

Hi there,

I will be traveling to Greece next July and will be seeing Mykonos, Ios and Santorini, however, I'll have an additional 3 nights to spend in either Paros or Naxos. I'm in my early twenties and I'm looking for adventure, a great night life, beach and a hostel to meet new people.

I'm leaning towards Paros because I've read it has a variety of water sports and I would be able to take a day trip out to Antiparos (would anyone recommend a night in Antiparos?)

However, every forum I've been on recommends Naxos over Paros, but the people asking have been older than I and traveling with either family or on honeymoon.

Any information helps!

Hello Nat9298.................I see you and I both hail from the same town, yet different continents...I didn't know there was a Toronto in Australia, so I've learned something new today...............

I wish I could give you a personal recommend, and though I've been to many Greek Islands, those are not two of them.......my suggestion is to try the TripAdvisor forums for both Paros and Naxos to see what you can find out....you could also try a general forum for Greece.......explain what you've outlined in your post here, and see if that makes a difference..........in the end, after you've done your research, you will choose what's right for you...................enjoy Greece, it's great fun...
