Antiparos is a tiny island and therefore it is suitable for inexperienced hikers. The island's surface area is only 35 km2 and the highest mountain Profitis Elias is only measuring 310 meters above sea level.

But I think that most people who travels to Antiparos are content with walks to the beaches near Chora. We have made a few hikes on Antiparos. The nicest was the one between Chora and the dripstone cave.

If you are going to hike on Antiparos, I can recommend Anavasi's Blue Map (1:40,000) describing hiking routes on Antiparos and Paros, easy and difficult. Terrain maps is another Greek cartographic company specialized in hiking maps. They have a map of Paros and Antiparos with the scale 1:40,000 which also describes many hiking routes. Both maps are available for purchase on Antiparos.

I recommend you to buy the hiking book Amorgos, Naxos, Paros, Eastern and Northern Cyclades by Dieter Graf. The book describes two hiking routes on Antiparos and six hiking routes on Paros in detail.

The book can be purchased on Antiparos, you can also buy it on internet if you want to plan your routes in advance.
