Aliki took its name from the salt marshes near the village and is the ideal destination for family holidays. It is a picturesque fishing village that became a tourist resort because of the natural shelter it offers from winds, and Piso Aliki, the beautiful, long beach with small white pebbles and sea pines.The taverns lining the pier where fishing boats and recreational vessels moor, offer good food (fish plays a starring role on the menus). There are also café-bars, sports fields and a children's play ground for families. The village is ideally situated for nearby excursions to beaches, such as the four small coves of Faragas with calm waters, which are preferred by those seeking a quieter and less crowded location for a swim.
The B. Skiadas Museum of Cycladic Folklore acquaints visitors with the history and traditions of Paros and the Aegean. Visitors are also likely to enjoy one of the three festivals at Aliki: Ai Yiannis Kleidonas in June, Sotiros (6 August) and Stavros (14 September).
