The super cute and minimal Casa Botanica Luxury Villas is the epitome of what Antiparos has to offer: complete tranquility away from the tourist crowds
The Best Hotels in Antiparos are mostly located around Antiparos Town but they are mostly scattered all over the island. Antiparos is a very small island and literally one-fifth of the size of Paros Island so your options in accommodation are fairly limited. However, the island has become famous in the last decades as it’s been widely known as Tom Hanks’s holiday home place and many other Holywood celebrities are now visiting it to enjoy its ideal location away from the crowds but in the centre of Cyclades islands.
BEST HOTEL IN ANTIPAROS: Kouros Village
BUT ALSO CHECK:
Antiparos belongs to the Cyclades group of islands in the middle of Aegean Sea literally next to Paros island. You won’t find large hotel complexes and all-inclusive resorts in Antiparos but mostly small family-run boutique hotels and luxury villas. There is not much to do on the island to be honest other than enjoying its few beautiful sandy beaches and its cute capital town.
Antiparos island is not that far from Athens, but the island is not connected to any other place other than with a 30-minute ferry to Paros. So, if you want to go to Antiparos you have to go from Athens to Paros first and then go to the Paroikia port or Pounta beach to take the ferry to Antiparos that is only run between April and October (always check Ferryhopper for the latest ferry schedules). Also, you cannot take your car to Antiparos as there is no way to bring it there since the only ferry that goes to the island does not carry cars.
I honestly believe you don’t need a car in Antiparos and if you are looking to visit the island you can move in it with the local bus that goes to the the main beaches of the island regularly and safely. You can definitely rent a car though if you want to be more flexible.
