Information On Antiparos


Antiparos is part of Cyclades complex and it is right next to the southwest edge of Paros.

Antiparos only has one settlement with a main stone-paved alley that connects the harbor with the Castle. The scenic capital has a nice view to the neighboring Paros, as well as whitewashed houses, quaint churches, flowered balconies and cute little shops.

Antiparos, like most Cycladic islands, has no real vegetation, but what set it apart from most islands is that it is almost entirely flat instead of mountainous.

Antiparos is a destination where you can find both tranquility and fun, but not the frenetic nightlife.

Antiparos has two gas stations and banks with ATM machines.
