island of Antiparos is located southwest of Paros, from which is divided
by a shallow channel, of approximately 4n.m. wide, and 4,2m deep. The
island covers an area of 35sq.klm, and because of its long shape it
has 57klm of beautiful coasts.
The land to the north is flat and fertile while small hills rise from
the center to the west, with Profitis Helias (300m.) being highest.
The western coasts of the island are smooth and sandy, while the east
ones are rough with small bays. The island is surrounded by numerous
smaller islands. To the north: Kavouras, Diplo and the rocks
Kokkinos Tourlos and Mavros Tourlos.
In the northern entrance of the channel we come upon the Magrines, Rematonisi
(owned by Goulandri) and Saliagas with the lighthouse and the remains
of a prehistoric settlement. Northwest we can find the biggest one,
Despotiko, which together with Antiparos creates a leeward bay, and
a little further more Stroggilo. All these islands except Rematonisi,
are uninhabited and some of them are used as pastureland.
