Santa Maria, Paros Island, Greece

by - 1/09/2016

So I just escaped from committing a sin...beef! After filling our stomachs with grilled octopus and chicken souvlaki, we bade goodbye to Naoussa.  We proceeded towards the Santa Maria beach. The way to the beach was nothing short of spectacular.

I could stare at this view forever!

The road was winding. Sometimes it was so windy that our scooty swayed. After stopping at various stops to ask for directions, we reached a deserted stretch of road which read Santa Maria. No one could be seen around. Paros is a sparsely populated island anyways. It was around eight in the evening. Just half an hour of daylight left. So we took the risk and proceeded.

The Aegean Sea on one side and deserted land on the other...winding road in between.. me trying to hold my hat from flying off!!

It was a very windy evening. The Aegean Sea was on one side and stretches of land with tall grasses on another. The road seemed to have come out of a fairytale. Then we spotted a big house facing the sea. Tall golden grasses were swaying in the wind at the front. We had to stop here for pictures.

It was almost sunset hour. Just about fifteen minutes of natural light was left. I hate taking pictures during dusk. Either broad daylight or pitch dark! It was time we hurried.

We sped for a good fifteen minutes to reach Santa Maria. It was almost dark. There were just a couple of girls there apart from us.They were all the way from Brazil. God knows where all others were at such a famous beach. A beautiful resort led to the beach. I don't know whether the deserted ambiance or the impeding darkness, I felt a chill run down my spine. It was actually creepy. It was time to scoot. By the time we left, it was pitch dark.

Saying goodbye to Nauossa...

Beautiful stone houses on the way...
