Paros visit: Noussa or Parika for homebase

Hello- staying three days on Paros during the last week in April. Having trouble deciding where to stay in order to best experience the island in such a short time. We’re flying in/out of Paros It will be me and my sister and we are looking for relaxation and exploring the island. Not planning on renting a car but happy use bus system and/or Water ferry to Antiparos/ other beaches. Could be convinced of scooter rentals too. We’re at an impasse, she says Noussa and I say Parika. Any thoughts on the better location in regards to seeing the rest of island and things being open late April. It will be the week after orthodox easter and hoping most things will be open. Thank you.

I've only been to Paros once and we stayed in Parika and took the bus to Noussa for part of a day. That worked out best for us. Parika is definitely larger (though not 'big' by any means) and had more to see/do choices of places to eat. Noussa is lovely as well but I liked Parika better as a base.

I only labeled some of the photos but the Paros ones start at #46, that's Parika, Noussa is # 69-90
