Antiparos is a wild island with only one village, but its beaches and natural wonders will definitely seduce you!
Aghios Georgios
South of Antiparos, facing the desert island of Despotiko, it's a great place to escape the crowds and rest in quietness. A few scattered houses, taverns at the edge of the water. Far from everything, but served by a bus line.
Aghios Ioannis
The cave of St. John is a renowned attraction of Antiparos. Perfectly equipped and well-lit, this magnificent cave is a must-see and an unforgettable visit. In summer, it's a cool haven.
Antiparos Village
Port and capital of Antiparos, it is the most lively place on the island, especially in July-August. Beautiful beaches nearby, ancient kastro, restaurants, bars and shops.
Despotiko Sanctuary
The archaeological sites of the island have not yet been fully excavated. Many buildings have been identified, including a sanctuary of Apollo. The site is not equipped for visitors but a project exists and Despotiko could one day become an open-air museum like Delos.
Livadi Beach
South of Despotiko, this beautiful sandy beach is a stopover for boat cruises organized from Antiparos. It's thus not always a deserted beach, but you'll feel at the end of the world anyway!
If you really want to feel like standing at the end of the world, hike to Faneromeni Chapel, at the end of Petalidha Peninsula (also accessible with a 4WD). It's a really magical place!
On the west coast of Paros, 8 km southwest of Parikia, the Pounta pier is the starting point of the small ferry shuttle to Antiparos. You can also go to Antiparos with a "karavaki" (small passenger boat) from Parikia.
Soros Beach
A beautiful sandy beach in the south of the island, where you can go by bus from the village of Antiparos. It is very popular in high season and there is a tavern in summer.
Spyridon Rocks
North of Antiparos, a few picturesque islets and reefs are a stopover for boat cruises. (Even when the sea is quiet, this is a dangerous swimming place, be very careful!) A steep but secure trail leads to the chapel of Aghios Spyridon, standing on top of the largest islet.
