Lolantonis is a gorgeous stretch of picturesque beach located in the southwest region of Paros. This private yet convenient location is approximately 22km from Parikia and about 19km from Naoussa. Lolantonis beach is one of the few remaining hidden gems that is still unknown to the visitors of Paros, but is an extremely popular destination for the locals of Paros who know the region best, especially among those who live in the southern region of the island. Tradition holds that the beach's name originated from the local Lolantonis tavern that is still next to this beach today. The beach is located inside a small bay that faces to the south, which means that it is generally protected from the strong northern winds of the summer season. The nearby sea is usually calm with no waves, and the thin local sand makes it ideal for children. The water is a crystal-clear turquoise, and the perfect location for water sports.
