Milos & Paros in Mid June - Specific Activity/Restaurant Recommendations

Hello fellow travelers!

My friend and I (in our 30s) will be going to Milos (June 13-17) and Paros (June 17-20) and back to Athens on 20th. I am looking for some specific advice as to what to do on the islands. I have been to Milos before so have an idea of what I would like to do - but love getting feedback from other travelers. We are pretty chill and not about party night life - more about excursions and traditional food.

Milos - Staying at Olea Bay in Adadamas - not renting a car (flying in from Athens)

Specific recommended boat island tour operator? We did a full island tour and I am inclined to do a full island tour again AND a half day tour but that is just because I loved it so much last year.

I don't think there are any water taxis to get to other parts of the island/beaches? If anyone knows that this is true?
I know there is a taxi stand in Pollonia and Adadamas but wasn't sure about up in Plaka region and Klima (specifically!). When in town last we had a private transport to the areas.
Recommendations for lunch or dinner in either Adadamas, Plaka, or Klima? Would ideally like to watch sunset (Methismeni Plaka? Astakas Klima?)

Paros - staying in Naoussa - not renting a car (taking ferry from Milos then flying to Athens)

Any thoughts on pros or cons of Senia Hotel vs Paliomylos Suites? We both would prefer to have a pool and be in walking distance to have dinner.

I believe that there are Paros all island boat tours directly from Naoussa - welcome any recommendations?
Are there water taxis in Naoussa to get to different parts of the island to visit beaches?
Lunch/Dinner recommendations in Noaussa, Plaka, other parts of island?

Sunset recommendations?

Much appreciated thanks in advance!

Have not been to Milos.

Spent a week in Paros and loved it. I stayed in Parikia, the capital. Very authentic. Didn't have a car. I strongly advise you to stay in Parikia, rather than Naousa, which is filled with tourists and tourist traps. Alternatively, stay in Anti Paros. BTW, boat trips start from Parikia and I joined Ben's trip. It was fun.

Thank you for recommendation for Parikia! Am happy for accommodation outside of naoussa for less touristy and more traditional.

Enjoy Greece. I fell in love with the country, except it's spotty internet connections. The food in Parikia was amazing.

We spent a week in Paros, in Naoussa and much preferred it to Parisian, each to their own.
Our Greek friends told us to eat at Christos in Naoussa and we were so glad we did!

We also highly recommend Ben’s boat trip from Paros. Look up “A lazy day with Captain Ben” for reviews & details.
