The hustle and bustle of Paros’ mainland can get a little overwhelming at times. When it all gets too much, take a holiday from your holiday with a boat tour to the tranquil Antiparos Island. It takes half-hour boat ride from the main port of Parikia, or eight minutes with the ferry from Pounta, to get from lively Paros to low-key Antiparos. Sun-drenched beaches where you can enjoy the crystal clear sea, beautiful traditional villages and unrivalled natural beauty await you. Pretty much everything happens on the main street, which leads to Kastro, a 15th-century fortified settlement.
