Paralio Astros possesses beaches and a harbour which can accommodate small ships. A medieval Frankish fortress commands the heights of a peninsula called "The Island" which juts out to form the harbour. The main square is at the foot of the castle mount. The town is also home to the Archaeological Museum of Astros, founded in 1985.

Today, Astros's principal industry is tourism. It is a popular vacation spot for inhabitants of Tripoli and other parts of Greece. As of 2001, the port had 874 permanent inhabitants.
