Picture-Perfect Paros: Greek Island Adventures

With a location in the very heart of the Aegean Sea, an earthy, off-the-beaten-track feel, traditional whitewashed villages, fish-sizzling tavernas, and some of the emptiest, most beautiful bays we've ever seen in the Med, Paros is an easy addition to our LBW YachtLife Greece.

It billows and we're off. I, like the fabled leaves of Homer's image, am blowing in the salty gales that have taken so many across this beautiful corner of the Med.
