Discover the island of Antiparos on an exciting Greek holiday

The stunning island of Antiparos is part of the Cyclades islands in the Aegean Sea. Antiparos is located just west of Paros and just east of Despotiko. The island is sparsely populated and is thus ideal for tourist travel year-round. Both the cave of Antiparos and the castle of Antiparos are sights worth seeing. A visit to the nearby islands is also an absolute must.

HomeAway provides a wide variety of holiday rentals on Antiparos that can accommodate groups of any size. While properties are concentrated in the towns on Antiparos, more secluded properties are also available. Houses are available to sleep as many as 12 people, with amenities such as full kitchens and swimming pools. HomeAway's properties are concentrated in the port town of Agios Georgios. Those searching for an apartment on Antiparos can choose from several properties on HomeAway. These properties include both studios made for a few people and family-friendly apartments with a view. Those who prefer to island hop should also consider HomeAway’s selection of holiday homes on Santorini or holiday rentals on Mykonos.

Things to do

Cave of Antiparos:

Since ancient times visitors have left inscriptions on the walls of the multi-tiered Cave of Antiparos. Though it was partially damaged during the German occupation in World War II, the cave has since been restored and adjusted for tourism with steps and adequate lighting. The cave is the most popular tourist destination on the entire island.

Castle of Antiparos:

This Venetian castle is the result of a political marriage between Venetian Giovanni Loredano and Mary Sommaripa of Paros. This castle is typical of the period in which it was built, though it was used as a church for a time, and the upper floors collapsed at some point.

Museum of Antiparos:

Many great archaeological finds have been made on Antiparos and are on view at the local museum. Some of these pieces date back as far as the Neolithic period. The pieces include arrowheads, pottery, and a figure called the Fat Lady of Saliagos.

Glifa Beach:

Visit Glifa Beach, located on the southern tip of Antiparos. This pristine beach is located about four miles from the main town of Chora. Glifa Beach is somewhat secluded and less crowded than other beaches. The beach is shaded by trees, particularly in the late afternoon.

Blue Island Divers:

Take a class or tour with Blue Island Divers. This diving school brings both beginners and pro divers to diving locations along the coast of Antiparos. Classes on underwater photography and open-water diving are also available. The Blue Island Divers office is located in Korali.

Ios:

Travel to the nearby island of Ios. Ios is located directly south of Antiparos and has a population of just over 2,000 people. The excavation sites at Skarkos Hill are particularly interesting. This island was a favourite location of hippies travelling in the 1970s. The beaches that hippies camped on have now been turned into tourist developments.

Weather on Antiparos

Greece enjoys a Mediterranean climate. Summer temperatures reach the mid-30s in July and August and dip to around 10°C in colder months. Yearly winds called the Etesians (or Meltemi in Turkish) blow from mid-May to mid-September. These winds are most active in the late afternoon and die down in the evening. The Etesians are most dangerous for sailors.

Travel to Antiparos

The easiest way to reach Antiparos is by ferry. Fly into the Athens Airport (ATH) and take the bus or a taxi to either the Piraeus Port or Rafina Port. Both ports offer ferry service to Antiparos. The high-speed ferries take about three hours but cost about twice as much as the normal ferries, which take about five hours to arrive at their destination.

The studio has shutters, helicopter fan and a/c to keep it lovely and cool. The water supply is the only downside, it struggles to cope when 2 showers are in use, but with patience it returns.

We stayed in the bigger apartment with our 5 year old daughter and there was plenty of space for all of us. We loved the outdoor terraces of which there were 2 with this apartment. The location was great, 2 minutes from the main street with lovely shops and restaurants and only a few minutes longer walking distance to several nice beaches. Nikos was a super friendly host and it was a nice treat to have the apartment cleaned half way through our stay not something we have ever had in other places we have stayed.
