The Kolymbithres beach is located on the northwest coast of the Peloponnese, in the area of Messinia. The length of the beach is approximately two kilometers. The beach is sandy, shallow, and narrow.
Paros Island is located in the Aegean Sea and is part of the Cyclades Islands. The famous Parian marble is mined in the mountains of the island, from which great buildings were built and many antiquity monuments were carved. For example, it was used for the sculpture of Aphrodite (Venus) of Milo, the temples of Apollo on Tilos, Hermes at Olympia, for some parts of the Temple of Solomon. Mountains make up a small part of the landscape, but the island is mostly flat, with palm and olive groves, endless vineyards, and kilometers of beautiful beaches with the purest golden sand. Recently, the romantic island of Paros has been wildly popular with tourists.
The fastest way to get to the island is by plane from Athens, the flight will take only about 30 minutes.
You can also use a passenger ferry. You will spend about 5 hours on the way. It is twice as fast to sail on a small speedboat – only 2 hours, but it also costs more.
There are usually quite a few people on the Kolymbia Beach from November to April.
Few tourist centers will be able to surprise with bright cloudless skies almost all year round, and Paros pleases with the sun more than 300 days a year. The peculiarities of the weather of the island of Paros help the tourist season to last all year round.
The climate is Mediterranean with dry hot summers, especially in July and August when the temperature during the day is around +30.

Lovers of rain will be disappointed: they are rare here.
