Antiparos Yacht Charter Guide
One of the best-kept secrets of the Cyclades, Antiparos is the smaller sister island to Paros and mostly remains off the radar. In the heart of the Aegean sea, for centuries artists and writers have visited its shores for inspiration and respite – Lord Byron and Truman Capote both spent considerable time here, with the former even inscribing his name on an ancient cave.
As there are no direct ferries from Athens, Antiparos is harder to get to for most visitors and therefore remains quietly untouched by mass tourism. The whitewashed buildings with pops of bright blue paint nestled along cobbled streets are like scenes pulled straight from a movie. A haven for yacht charters, the calm blue waters, and shallow beaches make the island well-suited for families with younger children. And as Antiparos lacks the party scene found on other islands, the crowd here tends to enjoy the tranquil simplicity of life.
