Blue Lagoon Antiparos & Despotiko Islands

 

Only 4,5 nautical miles starting from Pounda Paros or Antiparos island is a complex of 5 little tropic islands, with crystal blue waters and sandy beach named Pantalonisia & Tigani. Swim, snorkel & relax in the blue lagoon water and clear your mind.

Continue cruising west only 8 nautical miles from Pounda and explore Antiparos, a little beautiful island consindered the cosmopolital <NewMykonos> near Despotiko island with caves, cliffs and some magnificent bays where moments last forever. At Despotiko is an amazing little, sandy bay, only 180m width and 240m length, crystal blue waters like a natural swimming pool,where you can always snorkel and enjoy a good tan under the sun.

Antiparians were among the first in the Cyclades to take part in the War of Independence and in 1832 officially became part of the Greek state. During World War II, the southwestern tip of the island near the Agios George, was used as a secret submarine base, but after the war it became once more a tranquil place, though now growing as a tourist village.There are  also significant indications that in prehistoric and ancient times Despotiko island – due to its central position among the Cyclades and the large Despotiko Bay (between the island and Antiparos) providing safe anchorag- played an important role in maritime communication routes.Currently, excavations are taking place in the northwest part of the island and so far the findings are of great importance. The excavations proved the existence of an important late Archaic sanctuary with abundant objects indicating links to mainland Greece, the Eastern Mediterranean and even to Northern Afrika, as well as the continued use of this area in the Classical, Hellenistic, Roman and Frankish periods.

Return to Antiparos Island cruising through a natural shaped tunnel and stop at Despotiko bay for some ouzo drinks and snack overlooking the archeological remains.
Return before sunset to main port of Antiparos for a late afternoon coffee brake & check out at base before sun set.
