BOHEMIAN TRENDY

Laid-back vibe, beach life and youthful crowds are the defining elements of Antiparos, a beautiful small island located at the heart of the Cycladic complex and very close to the known island of Paros.

LAID-BACK HOLIDAY

Location: Cyclades
Capital: Antiparos
Size: 35,09 km2
Accessibility: By local ferry from Paros island

Antiparos is a very popular day trip destination. Yet the visitors were captivated by the serene landscapes and easy-going atmosphere and, overtime, the island gained a reputation as an alternative vacation haven. The main village is a charming, friendly place, built around an imposing Enetic castle. Attracting more sophisticated crowds, Antiparos is the ideal destination for those who wish to escape from the mainstream but still enjoy the peaceful landscapes and mellow lifestyle of the islands.
