A picture perfect small Aegean retreat, Antiparos

As the name suggests, Antiparos is quite the opposite of its larger sibling, Paros: small, compact and relaxed, it is the perfect spot for a low-key yet fun-filled vacation. Its lovely Hora, closed to the traffic, charms visitors with its colorful bougainvillea, narrow alleys and laid-back atmosphere: on its streets you will come across small tavernas, little family-owned stores, and tourists and locals alike hanging out at Antiparos’ many cafés. Its beaches, too, are famous for their beauty and rightly so: some are quiet and remote, others have a more party-like feel to them, but crystal-clear waters and stunning landscapes are common to all. After the sun goes down, the island offers a good selection of dining options, along with the chance to have fun until the wee hours of the morning, making it a great choice for those who enjoy both sunning themselves at the beach but also some night-time entertainment. Although simple in nature, Antiparos has a certain distinctive style which
makes it popular with some celebrities.
