It has an area of 194.46 square kilometers and the coastline is 118.5 km. The central location of Paros in the central Aegean, the crossroads of maritime routes connecting mainland Greece with the islands of the Archipelago, Asia Minor and beyond the Mediterranean, was the historical basis for the development of the island.

All these set the stage for very good and unforgettable vacation.
The access to the island is very easy by ship from Piraeus.There are regular schedules with all kinds of ships.

Ambelas is a small coastal village in the north east coast of Paros. It lies approximately 5 km east of Naoussa in the district which is currently owned and administered. In the 2001 census it counted 147 residents. Previously Ampelas was a small fishing village, known to fishermen but the cycle for the rich catch "haul" made in the sea area. But more was known Ampelas by his reference to the insular Song of Peace Konitopoulou Legakis "I'll have a fishing boat," the lyrics: I'm going to find Ventouri who has the trehantiri to go to Ampelas where the festival takes place. Today Ampelas presents significant touristic development with enough hotel facilities and restaurants and the beautiful beach which is characterized as one of the cleanest,most carefree and peaceful holidays. The fishing shelter that exists is small with very limited services.
