How to get to Antiparos from Paros
- Antiparos is accessible from Paros via two ferry ports: the smaller Pounta port and the main ferry port at Parikia.
- The Pounta ferry operates daily, year-round; departing every 30-45 minutes from 7am to around midnight. Crossing the narrow strait between Pounta and Antiparos takes only 7 minutes. You can get to Pounta by taxi, or by bus from Parikia. The bus station at Parikia is about 200 yards south of the ferry port, to the left as you are facing the water. The #4 Pounta/Antiparos bus runs about every hour; tickets are sold at the terminal kiosk. (Bus timetable and fare information)
- Renting a car on Paros is recommended for travelers staying on Antiparos. Bus service on Antiparos is very limited; with a car you can get outside of Antiparos Town to access the beautiful southern end of the island, as beaches that are off the bus route.
- The passenger-only Parikia ferry to Antiparos operates only during the summer, running multiple times each day. Sailings are timed to coincide with main ferry arrivals, weather permitting; as these are very small boats, they are sometimes canceled even when the main ferries are operating.
