HET EILAND ANTIPAROS IN DE CYCLADEN IN GRIEKENLAND
Antiparos map Nederlands

The island of Antiparos is located southwest of Paros, from which is divided by a shallow and about 4 metres deep channel. Because it is so undeep the big ferries have to sail around Antiparos instead of in between Paros and Antiparos. The island covers an area of 35 square kilometres, and because of its long shape it has 57 kilometres of beautiful coasts.

When we arrived on Antiparos for the first time we were there for a daytrip, but as soon as we sat down we both had the same feeling of 'we are home'. Eversince that day it has been on our menu when we go islandhopping in Greece. A holiday just wouldn't be complete without it, so I have to go there at least once, but preferably twice a year (or more!). For a while it had become my favourite island of all the Cyclades. We went to Antiparos every year and met with our friends Simon and Clare and their kids, to relax and to eat.

There's a restaurant situated on both sides of the main road, called Taverne Yorgis, that's just fabulous. The food is always tasty and the daughter and son (Garifalia and Bennos) that work outside on the terrace ar super: fast, friendly and funny. We always look forward to seeing them and their parents, but we don't look forward to the extra kilo's we always gain, haha. You will have no problems finding it. There are chairs and tables on both sides of the road and it's always busy. Once you have eaten there you won't find the need to eat anywhere else. At least: we don't.

I review the hotels, villas and apartments that I have visited and give my opinion of beaches and restaurants that I have visited. If it is good I will tell you this and if it is bad I will also tell you that. It is not possible for anybody to pay me to put an advertisement on my website.

In the evening the lamps on Paros and the small ferry that's sailing between Pounta (on Paros) and Antiparos make it feel like something out of a science-fiction movie. The honesty, sincerety and friendliness of the people that live there move me every time I go back. We found an apartment on a spot right on the beach with no road in front (so only the birds, the sea, the beach and the silence) with an extremely nice lady called Lillian, who rents studios, apartments and rooms at a good price (cheap!!). It's called Mike's Place and she has the best views in Antiparos village. If you are on the ground floor you have a terrace in the garden and if you are on the first floor you have a balcony, and a big table where you can have breakfast, or just a drink. You can also go and sit on the pier in front of the house and be in the middle of the sea. It's very likely I'll be your neighbour, because this is a place I return to almost every year. :). Quiet, comfortable and close to everything (the beaches, the restaurants, the supermarkets, te bakery, the ferries). People return to this place year after year (like me, I have been here so many times, but I often meet people that come to Mike's Place every year longer than me - and for a good reason!).

Although Lilian is not paying for advertising, and never has, and I just put her on because she is a friend, she has asked me to put her EOT number on: 11 44 K 13 2K 00975 0 0, just because the Greek government thinks they can enforce booking.com, greeka.com, tripadvisor, expedia and 1000's of foreign travel agents, websites and magazines to put numbers everywhere. They do not make international law. Besides: I write reviews and I don't do paid ads.

Some facts about the island Antiparos
The harbour of Antiparos Fishermans nets The ferry between Antiparos and Paros Harbour of  Antiparos The church at the seaside in Antiparos

The land in the north is flat and fertile while small hills, with Profitis Helias (300m.) being the highest. The western coasts of the island are smooth and sandy, while the east ones are rough with small bays. The island is surrounded by a a lot of smaller islands. In the north there are Kavouras, Diplo and the rocks Kokkinos Tourlos and Mavros Tourlos. In the northern entrance of the channel there is Rematonisi (owned by Goulandri, with a beautiful house, palmtrees and beaches on it) and Saliagas with the lighthouse and the remains of a prehistoric settlement. Southwest we can find the biggest one, Despotiko, and a little further more Strogilo. All these islands except Rematonisi, are uninhabited and some of them are used as pastureland. On Despotiko a number of Early Cycladic tombs were excavated in the 19th and 20th century, and isolated remains of a Doric architecture were found in 1958. Systematic excavations now focus on the site Mantra, where a large building of the Classical period has been partially uncovered.Archaeological work has documented occupation from the Early Bronze Age through Roman times.

tip

See the majestic sea caves of Antiparos, make the walk up the hill to the sanctuary and the rest of the excavations on deserted Despotico island and then be dropped off at your own private beach, wonder around the island and feel like Robinson Cruso렦or a couple of hours. Captain Marianos and his wooden boat the Sargos 1 can be found in the village of Agios Georgios, in the Antiparos, next to the three sea front tavernas. Marianos will take you anywhere you want and he will galantly help you to get off and on the boat. You tell him when you want to be picked up and he is there in time! This excursion is quite different from all the other (commercial) boat excursions you will find, really extra ordinairy, I would say: a must. It will be a day that you will always remember and treasure. Marianos is friendly and strong, his traditional wooden boat is fast, and the sea caves and island of Despotico are unforgettable. In high season he has a time schedule that is fixed (I think) leaving at 10.30 in the morning when the bus from Antiparos Town gets there. On other times you can call him at 0031 6973 794876. Vigdis and I on the Sorgos 1 boat

There is more to Antiparos than the village and the cave. Unfortunately, most tourists never discover this, and so miss out on a great experience. In my opinion no stay in Antiparos is complete without a visit to St Georgios, 12 km from the port, lunch at Captain Pipinos at the water's edge, and a boat trip with Captain SARGOS.

Captain SARGOS with his fast-going boat SARGOS can offer you an unforgettable trip, taking in a visit to the archeological site on Despotico, the cave of the Epitaphios ,which is such a tight fit for the boat you are sure it cannot possibly get through ,where you can swim from the boat, and then the Captain will leave you on a beautiful sandy beach on the deserted island of Despotico and return to get you at an agreed time. The boat trip takes around 2 hours, not counting time spent on the beach. You can call the Captain on +30 9673 79 48 76 or just turn up at St Georgios. You will find him on the boat or in the taverna. You cannot miss him, he is the one with the bandana round his head, looking like a pirate!

During High Season, the boat departs at 11 am and then every 2 hours until quite late. During Low Season, ie April, May, September and October, trips run on demand.

This holiday house is in Soros, about 400m from the beach, with wonderful views towards Paros, Naxos and Ios. It is 100m2 with a garden of 2300 m2. The house is suitable for a family or for a group of friends. There are 3 bedrooms for 5 people and the price is absolutely reasonable compared to some of the outrageous prices you will find if you want to rent a house in the Cyclades (100 euro a day in June and Juli and 150 euro a day in August).

Soros beach is the best beach on Antiparos, with two great tavernas. It is only 1 km to Apantima and the restaurant Still Waters. St Georgios with its wonderful tavernas is 1 km in the other direction. On Soros Beach there is also a part where there is room for the naturists. It is a very quiet place with no noise from bars etcetera. Amenities like supermarkets and an ATM machine you find in Antiparos Town. Although Antiparos is not such a very large island I recommend to rent a car or a bike when you stay in Soros. People stay here to get a piece of the authentic unspoilt island life.

How to get to Antiparos - the trip to Antiparos by ferry

Antiparos can be easily reached from Rafina (near Athens) or from Piraeus, where there are daily ferries going to the Cycladic islands. The journey to Paros takes about four to five hours, depending on the speed of the boat you take and the schedule it follows. After that you hop on the small ferry to Antiparos (30 minutes), or take a taxi to Pounda in the south of Paros, and take the car ferry there (10 minutes). On the airport of Athens there are regulair busses going to Rafina, and you don't have to drive through Athens itself. Off course you can also take a taxi. The ride takes about half an hour. It's also possible to fly to the island of Mykonos. From there it's only one and a half hours by ferry.
