Antiparos is a tiny island very close to Paros. Although Paros offers a cosmopolitan holiday and a vivid nightlife, Antiparos is actually the opposite, with quiet beaches and calm evenings. Sites are few on the island and is actually restricted to the Cave of Antiparos with the nice stalactites and stalagmites. Swimming in nice beaches and soaking the summer sun are pretty much the main things to do in Antiparos. Nice beaches are found all around the island, even a few meters from the fishing port of the Town. Glyfa, Psaralyki and the Camping beach are few of them.
