Distinctive Cycladic beauty
The visitors can reach Antiparos with a boat from Pounta of the west coasts of Paros, but there are also some routes form Parikia. Being a small & more ‘low profile’ island than Paros, yet with many geographic similarities, even though Antiparos is probably the most fertile island of Cyclades. This little island has only 2 villages, Kastro & Kampos, along with some cottages & farmhouses scattered through the island. Kastro, also being the administrative center of the community, has taken its name from the Venetian castle, which defines the limits & fortifies the village, including many narrow alleys & picturesque houses, although inhabitance has been expanded outside the walls.
Famous for its beautiful beaches, the sandy beach Kaloudia & Theologos are the closest to the castle. Moreover, Sifneikos Yalos behind the village & the 3 continuous beaches Psaralykes near the port offer more choices to the visitors. Following the only road, the visitor will find Glyfa, Apanthma & Agios Georgios at the south, while near Kampos there is the not so accessible beach Livadi. Finally, the Cave of Antiparos, a really impressive & worth-visiting natural sight, with its impressive arched entrance at the level if the sea & Agios Ioannis Spiliotis chapel at this point, which lead the visitors inside the cave, at the bottom of the mountain, where stalactites & stalagmites compound an interesting geological pattern.
