In Antiparos, the visitor should not limit himself to walks only in the country, to the castle and on the route to the cave and Ai George. Getting around the island by boat is of great interest, because you can approach sea caves, see steep beaches and discover enchanting emerald bays. By boat or boat is the only way to go to the surrounding islands, which, in addition to their archaeological interest, hide some of the most beautiful beaches in the Aegean. Antiparos is particularly suitable for sea excursions with an inflatable boat, because its coasts are one of the most beautiful of the Cyclades with sea caves, rocks of various shades and amazing beaches, many of which have only sea access.
The coasts of the small uninhabited islands around Antiparos are also open for exploration, the most important of which is Despotiko, where archaeological research has brought to light remarkable archaeological findings. If your inflatable is relatively small, a quiet place to launch it is the small beach at the back of the campsite, which is only 700 meters from the harbor on the northern shores of the island.
This particular beach is never crowded, because its bottom is muddy with seaweed, while in a very close distance there are much more attractive places to swim. The waters are shallow at first and require some care but deepen quickly. If you want to approach the opposite islets of Dipla and Kavoura, you must attempt it from the west because the sea strait formed between the southern shores of Dipla and the northern coasts of Antiparos has shallow spots and many bathers of the camping beach swim across it.
The eastern coasts of the island are mostly rocky and host beautiful beaches. They start a little north of the port with a view of the opposite green Reumatonisi which is privately owned. After Agios Spyridon, the closest beach to the port, you will find Psaralykes and Panagia, which are the busiest beaches of the island with natural shade from tamarisk trees and taverns. Next is Glyfa which has road access and gathers quite a few people. If you stop here and feel like hiking, you can follow the path that leads to the most important natural attraction of the island, the Cave of Antiparos on the hill of St. John.
In continuation of the eastern coast between impressive red rocks are the beaches of Plaka, Akrotiri, and Apandima which are quiet and deserted and a little further south Soros, which is more crowded with beautiful seaside tavernas. After Soros, the south-eastern coasts of the island are home to many bays with sandy beaches, the most famous of which is Faneromeni, which also has a tavern. Between the south-eastern coasts of Antiparos and the south-western coasts of Paros are the uninhabited islets of Tourlos, Preza, Glaropoula, Tigani and Panteronisi surrounded by wonderful blue-green waters, ideal for diving. The bottom of the area is also very interesting with impressive rocks, pieces of ancient clay objects, etc. On the southwest coast of Antiparos from the southernmost tip to the bay of Despotiko, sea caves are formed that will impress you, while a little further north the beach of Agios Georgios is one of the most popular on the island, with many possibilities for water sports and excellent fish taverns.
Opposite the beach of Agios Georgios are the islets Koimitiri, Despotiko and Strogylos which are of special archaeological interest. The most beautiful beaches of Despotikos are located on the northern coasts, while the surrounding sea area is ideal for fishing. After Agios Georgios you will come across the special Vathi Volos beach, which has road access and gathers a lot of people. In the local tavern, it is worth trying charcoal-grilled octopus and dried fur. The rest of the west coast is quite smooth with many points of interest and deserted beaches that are only accessible by sea. Of these, Monastiri, Livadi and Sifneikos Gialos are the only ones that have road access, so they gather more people. If you have the chance, enjoy the enchanting sunset from Sifneikos Gialos.
