Explore the Cycladic Beauty of Antiparos in Greece

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 in Antiparos town.

Walking through the small town built around a 15th century Venetian castle in a summer afternoon is an experience that will not be forgotten. You also admire the exhibits of the Historical and Folklore Museum of Antiparos.

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.

A visit to Antiparos Cave that has the oldest stalagmite in Europe is strongly advised.

West of Antiparos there are three uninhabited small islands: Despotiko, Tsimintiri (between Antiparos and Despotiko) and Strongylo (west of Despotiko). Despotiko island has a magnificent silver sandy beach and an archaeological site with the temple of Apollo you can easily reach by a boat.

Antiparos island has a wide variety of villas, hotels, rooms to let, apartments and a camping where you can stay on your vacations. You can also find many restaurants for every taste and quite a few bars and clubs. Whatever you need  you will be able to find it in the various shops.

There are many events to attend (music, sports, theater, art, etc.), many of them free, during the summer.

A wedding in Antiparos is something you or your guests will never forget.
