Santa Maria beach is located at the northwestern end of Paros, in a picturesque cape, in a large bay. Santa Maria is considered as the beach of Naoussa, from which it is only 4 km. Parikia, the capital of Paros, is 15 km from this beach.
The central beach of Santa Maria is long in length and consists of fine sand, which resembles powder with golden colour. Santa Maria’s waters are impressive and crystal clear, with the sand extending to the bottom, reflecting the sun’s rays making the sea look like it contains diamonds.
Following the beach’s main road, there is a smaller and equally beautiful sandy beach, known as Little Santa. It has golden sand, crystal clear and blue waters, with a seabed that will really conquer you.
South of the great Santa Maria, several dunes hold a rare beauty and opportunities for relaxation. The sea has formed small sandy beaches, just a few meters long, giving an ideal solution for moments of calm and seclusion.
