Antiparos Island (near Paros) in Greece.

Visiting Antiparos Island in Greece.

About taking a trip from Paros out to the tiny Greek Island of AntiParos and looking round The Cave of Antiparos.

The small island of Antiparos lies just off the coast from Paros Island and is easily reached by small boat either from Parikia or by the normal ferry service which runs out of Pounta. Apart from the fact that it's actually there so why not, there are two main reasons to go to Antiparos - firstly to visit the fantastic colourful old cave and secondly go to the beach (including a nice naturist beach).

A bus is meant to run to and from the famous caves on Antiparos however when we went over apparently the bus was broken - (we did see an Antiparos bus parked in Parikia on Paros...) so maybe the service does not start until July/August. Anyway it's easy enough just to simply hire bicycles - the trip from the ferry is only a 7km or so bike ride - however there is a very steep climb over the last km. The entrance to the caves is guarded by a lovely and typical small Greek Church called Agios Ioannis Spiliotis (photo above right). Antiparos Cave was used for habitiation as far back as Neolithic times - the cave is very colourful and full of stalactites and stalagmites. The cave is spread over several levels but the walkways and steps are generally fine for going along and it is all mostly well lit.
