Once the boho alternative to the cosmopolitan lifestyle of Paros, the tiny island of Antiparos has become over the last few years the best kept secret of the world’s rich and famous. And understandably so, with sophisticated bars, chic restaurants and uber-stylish boutiques seamlessly blending in with the established pretty shops and authentic tavernas.
Small, but perfectly formed, low-key, offering the perfect summer-vibe, yet cheerfully lively – this unassuming yet stunning island offers a hip interpretation of the traditional Cycladic style, and a truly lovely holiday experience, with a hint of the exclusive, but with a welcoming smile.
The slightly more touristy waterfront and main street give way to a winding maze of white-washed alleys decorated beautifully by the stunning colours of the bougainvillea. The ambience is easy-going and intimate, the beaches are beautiful and unspoilt, and the shopping surprisingly good for an island of this size.
The island is ideal for those who value privacy, an authentically Greek experience and beautiful unspoilt surroundings, but don’t want to give up on the comfort, luxury and convenience usually offered by an established destination. The island boasts beautiful sandy beaches, a fascinating cave with stalactites and stalagmites and three nearby uninhabited islets that are perfect for daily excursions.
