Antiparos the island of tranquility in Cyclades

Antiparos the island of tranquility that is sometimes forgotten in the light of Paros. That is why we loved it; me and my sister. We arrived in Paros and went straight on the ferry to Antiparos for 5 EUR. After 20 minutes in a delightful boat ride surrounded with fresh saltwater air, we arrived at the port of Antiparos.

 

We stepped out and started walking in the main street, and our pulse slowed down. Antiparos is the island we need, and we are taking it slow and enjoying the tranquility. Even on the main street, there is no rush. After 48 hours in Santorini, we needed Antiparos and the relaxed atmosphere that comes with the island.

We entered our hotel room, and it was nothing fancy, but it was enough. A nice clean bad, a small shower and a balcony with a sea view. The great Greek family atmosphere is making you feel at home away from home. Antiparos Island becomes our vacation spot for our 10 days Itinerary in Greece.

 A low key but fashionable island & Celebrities favorite.

 

In Antiparos, we didn’t do much, or we did some eating and beaching, but not more. Antiparos is the island to not stress about anything. The only decisions needed to be taken: Where to eat and when are we going to the beach.

We are not the only ones to have discovered Antiparos – the island of tranquility in the Cyclades. Tom Hanks a lover of Greece has found this pearl and had a mansion on the island. On our boat cruise, we did see the palace; we are renting it next summer;) Tom Hanks is often enjoying his summer holiday on Antiparos, we did not see him this time.

 

All the people from Athens are also on the island for their summer vacation. Many of the people from Athens have summer houses in Paros and go with the ferry from Punta by night for dinner and drinks in Antiparos.

Klimataria

Our favorite place to eat ended up being in Klimataria Tavern where our favorite dish was fried feta cheese with sesame seeds and honey. A delicious combo that we kept on eating during our stay on the island. Their Greek salad was mouthwatering and just a perfect combination of cucumber and tomato, sometimes there is too little cucumber. That can make you very sad.

Our only activity thing we did was a boat trip with Captain Ben; it was great to see the island from the sea and go swimming in beautiful places around the island.
