The tiny, rocky island at the heart of the Cyclades, is less than 1 nautical mile away from Paros. The island was inhabited since the Neolithic period but next to Antiparos there are two very small islands, called Saliagos and Despotiko that are of great archeological interest, as in the first one archeologists found the oldest establishment in the Cyclades. 

The island was first inhabited in the Neolithic period and along with the other Cyclades was occupied by the Venetians and the Ottomans.  

Antiparos is 34,2 km2 and nowadays has a population of approx. 1.200. The main settlement of the island is across Pounta of Paros.

Activities and Events

Antiparos, unlike its next famous and touristic Paros, is a place for relaxation. The beautiful landscape, the golden sandy beaches, and the clear waters are ideal for those who wish to enjoy pure nature away from loud noise and overcrowded streets. 

During summertime, many cultural events take place along with religious festivals.
