Antiparos Island

During your holiday on Paros Island, we recommend you set aside a few days to visit Antiparos Island. It is a small Cycladic Island, located opposite Paros that was once a significant center of the Cycladic civilization. Most of the island’s 900 permanent residents live here. In the summer this number is multiplied, but even then, the village retains its feel of peace and quiet. Antiparos is a popular tourist destination for those who want to spend their vacation bonding with nature. In comparison to other Greek Islands, it is relatively untouched by mass tourism, making it ideal for an easy-going and relaxing holiday.

The beaches on Antiparos Island are quite extraordinary, some are long sandy stretches and others are rocky coves, but all have shimmering blue waters. The best beaches on Antiparos Island are: Psaralyki, Ai Giorgis, Agios Spiridonas, Apandima, Glyfa, Livadia, Panagia, Sifneiko, Soros, and Theologos. Throughout Antiparos there are white cubic houses, narrow alleyways and lovely churches that are typical of the Cycladic Islands.

A tour of the sites of Antiparos Island is an amazing experience. In the capital town, you can see the Venetian Castle and stroll through the quaint streets that are decorated with bougainvillea flowers. The most significant site in Antiparos is the Cave on Agios Ioannis Hill, which contains some of the finest stalagmites and stalactites in Europe. The cave also includes a number of inscriptions, the most prominent being that of King Otto in 1840.

You can reach Antiparos by ferry boat from either Parikia Port passengers only or Punta Port passengers and cars or motorbikes.

Other small islets to visit are Pantieronissi, Tigani, Glaropunta, Makronissi, Agia Kali, etc.
