It’s also a draw for celebrities. Who knows, you may just bump into Hollywood actor Tom Hanks who has a home on the island!
You absolutely must visit the Antiparos Cave - one of the oldest and most beautiful caves in Greece. Visitors can get up close to the seriously impressive stalactites and stalagmites and marvel at the underground lakes and rivers that are mystically lit.
Back out in the open, Antiparos is a popular destination for water sports, such as kiteboarding and windsurfing. The island's crystal-clear waters and gusty breezes make it an ideal location for these activities.
Heading underwater is a must too! The clear turquoise water provides some fantastic snorkelling opportunities, or go deeper on a scuba excursion and explore reefs and wrecks and the colourful fish that call them home.
What’s more, the proximity to other Greek islands is a great bonus. It’s just a short sail to neighbouring Paros and Naxos which are both well worth stopping over to see. Antiparos’ location is ideal for island hopping and exploring all around the beautiful Cyclades islands and spending time on the water.
Antiparos is a great destination for those looking to relax, explore, and experience the best of idyllic Greek island life. Whether you're looking for stunning beaches, rich culture, beautiful vistas or exciting water sports, Antiparos has something for everyone.
Antiparos is home to a fabulous array of restaurants and tavernas where you can try delicious local dishes. Be sure to try some of the island's specialities, such as chickpea balls, sun-dried octopus, and kopanisti cheese.
Naturally, seafood plays a big part in the food culture here, and fresh fish and seafood dishes, such as fried red mullet, sardines, and calamari are staple dishes on menus around the island.
Revithada is a traditional chickpea stew that is cooked slowly in a clay pot with onions, garlic, and herbs. It is a hearty and flavorful dish that is often served with beautifully fresh bread.
You can’t fully appreciate Greek cuisine without indulging in local wine too. Antiparos has a small but thriving wine industry, and you can find locally produced wines in many of the island's restaurants and tavernas. It would be criminal to leave without sampling a local wine!
