We're a group of five around 25 years old travelling to the Cyclades Islands the last week of August. We are planning on staying two nights in Paros. I've read a lot of forums on Parikia vs. Naoussa but I'm still not sure about which one is better. I've read that Noussa is a resort town and seems a little bit fake so right now I was thinking on staying in Parikia but I want to double-check.
We want to go to nice beaches (not overcrowded if possible) and relax but also go out at night. We are planning on renting a car or scooter (if we rent a car, is it easy to find spots to park?) so there's no problem if the beaches are not walking distance. Would you recommend Parikia or Naoussa?
Also, I've seen some photos of sea caves in Antiparos. Is it possible to rent a boat or join an excursion to do a round-trip of Antiparos?
