Beaches in Antiparos

Description and information on the beaches of Antiparos

Organized, with water toys, quiet and secluded beaches in Paros

Beach with golden sand at Antiparos

The beaches of Antiparos stretch along the coastline to satisfy a wide range of preferences: from lovers of quiet beaches to those of entertainment near the sea or fans of water sports. Everyone gets what they look for. Sandy or with fine pebble, really shallow and ideal for children, accessible by car or recluse, only by boat... then, all have one thing in common: Crystal clear waters to swim or dive in and explore the emerald tinged seabed.

The following beaches are very close to the settlement, a mere 5 minute walk
