Day Trip to Antiparos from Paros

Day trip to Antiparos

Antiparos is a small island that’s about a 10 minute ferry ride from Paros. You can catch the people ferry in Parikia, which has about 5 crossings per day and is about 30 minutes long. Or, you can catch the ferry to Antiparos from Paros at the Pounda Paros port where there are car ferries every 15 minutes or so and you can bring your ATV with you for a nominal fee. This ferry is about 7 minutes long, and you buy your ticket on the ferry. Make sure to bring cash though, as they do not accept credit cards. It was less than 20 Euros round trip for 2 people and an ATV. If you have some time during your vacation to Paros, it is very easy to spend a half day or day in Antiparos. Here are recommendations for things to do, see and eat when you only have a day in Antiparos.

Hike Down Antiparos Cave

If you bring an ATV with you to Antiparos, the Antiparos Cave is a quick 15 minute drive – up a little bit of a hill – and is a unique experience to hike down and marvel at the view from right outside the cave. Since the cave is on a hill, you get to see a gorgeous view up above on Antiparos and then you get to explore a cool cave. The hike down the cave is approximately 400 steps so it’s not too difficult although with the humidity we were sweating by the end. If you didn’t bring a ATV, you can rent one on the island or there are buses that go from the town to the cave.
