What to do
Where beauty well exceeds its size, Antiparos is a small Greek island located at the heart of the Cyclades. It’s situated just one nautical mile from Paros and it is known for its striking natural beauty.
The island offers stunning shoreline coupled with crystalline emerald waters, golden sandy beaches and hidden swimming caves. Narrow cobbled stone alleys and streets, white-washed houses decorated with pink and purple bougainvilleas and shadowy eucalyptus trees, create an inviting island atmosphere.
