Beaches within walking distance from the Antiparos Village
- The most popular and probably the closest beach to the centre is Psaralyki. A nice, laid-back sandy beach, ideal for families, with crystal clear water and lots of trees providing shade. There is a spot for pedal boat, canoe and windsurf rentals and chaise-longues can be rented for the day. The beach faces Paros, offering view of the ferry boats and kite-surfers crossing the channel from Antiparos to Pounta and back.
- At the end of Psaralyki, a short path leads to 2nd Psaralyki beach. Thin white sand and trees providing niches and clearances for more or less privacy characterize this beach that also faces Paros. There are chaise-longues for hire and 2 beach cafés. Fanari Beach Café (http://www.fanaribeach.gr/) with volleyball court, playground and swimming pool and Time Marine (https://www.facebook.com/pages/Time-Marine-Antiparos/235174743168289) with a playground.
- Agios Spiridonas is at the other side of the port, facing the bay of Antiparos. The beach is nice with white sand, trees along its length and very warm shallow waters, hence its nickname “Baby beach”. The sea there is not suitable for swimming due to the shallow waters, but parents of babies and toddlers will surely appreciate its beauties. Sailing and swimming classes for kids take place there in the summer. There is a restaurant at the end of the beach.
- Sifneikos or Sunset beach is a northwest-facing bay with loyal fans. There is no infrastructure and no shade, so bring your parasol. It is famous for its sunset so best visited in the afternoon. When north winds blow there are waves, very appreciated by local kids who are used to calm waters, and algae can take over the sand and shallow waters. On days with south or no wind, the rough beauty of this beach neighboured by high cliffs of pure rocks is unparalleled. The local kids and teens dive from the cliffs but this isn’t recommended!
- The Camping beach, near the camping of Antiparos (http://www.camping-antiparos.gr/), is a longer walk but worth it. It is an official nudist beach but is also frequented by swimsuit-wearing folk. The sand is thin and white and the water clear turquoise. No shade is available at the beach so bring your own. There is a small uninhabited island, home to a herd of goats opposite the beach and the water in-between is shallow enough to permit crossing on foot. There is a volleyball court on the beach but no amenities.
