Where beauty well exceeds its size Antiparos is a small Greek island located at the heart of the Cyclades and the Aegean sea. It’s situated just one nautical mile from Paros island and it is known for its distinctive Cycladic beauty.

The island offers 57 km of stunning shoreline and is blessed with a striking natural beauty, crystalline emerald waters, golden sandy beaches and other extraordinary natural wonders.

Narrow cobbled stone alleys and streets, white-washed houses decorated with thriving pink and purple bougainvilleas and shadowy eucalyptus trees create this enchanting atmosphere.

Walking through the small town built around a 15th century Venetian castle in a summer afternoon is an experience that will not be forgotten.

Organized boat tours, hiking, cycling, scuba diving, snorkeling, windsurfing and kite surfing, are just a few ways you can appreciate and experience the natural beauty of the island and the sea.

West of Antiparos there are three uninhabited small islands: Despotiko, Tsimintiri (between Antíparos and Despotiko) and Strongylo (west of Despotiko).

What people say

about Antiparos
Giannis Triperinas

Antiparos is one of the most beautiful islands I have ever visited. The atmosphere makes it ideal for a relaxing vacation. Even if you are staying at Paros it is well worth a day trip to see Antiparos cave, Despotiko island, eat some local Greek food and fresh ice-cream and grab a cocktail before you get the last ferry boat to Paros.
