Antiparos. A narrow strait separates the island of Antiparos from Paros. Archaeologists claim that these two islands were once joined together. Antiparos is famous for its golden sandy beaches and unspoiled natural beauty. Near Antiparos are dozens of small uninhabited islands, full of wild rabbits and wild pigeons.
The only village on the island is the capital, called Kastro or Antiparos. Beaches are only found on the eastern coast. Psaraliki, Fanari, Aghios Ioannis, Aghios Georgios and Glifa are the best of the beaches. The main attraction on Antiparos is the caves of Aghios Ioannis. Antiparos occupies a land area of 38 square kilometers (47 mi2) with a coastline of 37.5 kilomters (23 mi) and a population of 850 people. Antiparos exudes pure tranquility. The island has beautiful sandy edges and many quaint chapels.
Antiparos has daily ferry connections with the ports of Parikia and Pounda on Paros.
