Travel Guide to Antiparos Island- Greece

Antiparos island! An unspoiled countryside on a magical blue canvas, where you can enjoy cheerful times, relaxed moods, friendly people, and pure fun until the morning.

The capital of Antiparos island is a picturesque little town also named Antiparos, or simply Chora.

Chora’ infrastructure includes a small port, two marinas, a post office, and banks and there is also a small medical center and a pharmacy. There are all kinds of elegant shops, cafes, bars and restaurants, many of which boast of their gourmet cuisine.

Interesting activities on the island include boat trips to nearby islets, walking tours, diving, a famous summer rock music festival, paintball, spa services and more. Still a Mecca for artists, who come for peace, inspiration and the light, the island stimulates creativity and encourages reflection and contentment within even the most hardened cynic.

For those staying in the town, there is no need for a car as everything can be reached on foot.  The town is quiet during the day, but in the evening its central stone-paved street bursts with life, with people dining or having a drink all along.

On the other hand, for those who are in a nature discovery mood, the small island has many beautiful isolated sea and countryside areas with surprising scenery.

On Antiparos island one can combine stylish holidays, exciting excursions, solitary times, crowded fun, and carefree living.

Antiparos is located very close to the cosmopolitan Paros island. Every hour from morning till late evening a ferry boat brings people and cars to Paros in only 35min, thus allowing for further explorations and cultural experiences.

There are many charter flights available to the neighbouring islands of Mykonos and Santorini. From there you can continue to Paros by boat. Alternatively you can fly from almost any big European city to Athens and:

a. further fly to Paros using Olympic Air. Early booking is advisable, because of limited availability.

b. go to the port of Piraeus and get a boat to Paros (daily connections). It’s important to know that it takes about 2 hours to reach the port of Piraeus by Bus or Metro after you have landed. From the port of Piraeus you can buy a High-Speed Ferry ticket (the ferry to Paros takes about 3 hours). Collecting you from the port or airport of Paros is included in your holiday package.

Once you have arrived on Paros there are regular boat services connecting Paros and Antiparos throughout the year, mostly from the port of Punda, a 10-minute drive from Parikia with adequate bus connections.
