Love the wind on your face? Love the excitement of moving at great speeds and skipping over the waves? You’ll surely enjoy kitesurfing, which combines wakeboarding with a powerful kite mechanism, letting you harness the wind and glide effortlessly over the waters.

You can get your fill of the thrill kitesurfing can bring over the waters surrounding the island and come back on land with your thirst for adventure satisfied.
- Water skiing
Want something high-speed that’s different from kitesurfing? Try water skiing! This extreme water sport has you rigged up behind a boat that will pull you as you balance yourself on one or two skis, skipping over the waves at immense speeds that will be sure to get your blood pumping! You will need good upper and lower body strength for this, so it may not be good for beginners. Still, there are places on Antiparos Island which offer water skiing, so if you’ve tried it before, it’s a great idea to come by and do it amid the golden beaches of the island to get your ocean adventure fix!
Into something lower-speed that lets you experience the beauty of the sights around you? Kayaking may be the way to go! Kayaks are man-powered boats that you operate by way of double-ended paddles. They aren’t difficult to use and thus you can go on a kayaking excursion even with little to no kayaking experience. There are plenty of guided kayaking tours that will take you to gorgeous spots you can only reach by paddling out to sea. This is a great way to explore the beauty of Antiparos in a unique way unavailable to any other means of going around the island. Take the time to indulge in the sights around you and you will find your appreciation of something so glorious to go to even greater heights!
- Scuba Diving
If you want to explore the depths of the gorgeous ocean, then you should definitely try scuba diving at Antiparos. There are lots of options available for people who are interested in the majestic sights of the vast underwater world. There are beautiful things to see near Antiparos’ golden shores that you can only take part in if you go diving. However, it’s best to have more experience before coming in on a dive trip. People who hold diving excursions, like Blue Island Divers, offer courses on diving as well as shore and boat dives. They also claim that they can bring you to places which only they go to, so that’s definitely worth checking out! They offer gear rentals also so there’s no need to bring bulky equipment around, just enjoy the splendor of the unseen world underwater!
If you aren’t sure about the difficulty level of diving but still want to see gorgeous underwater sights, then you should look into snorkeling. Snorkeling can be done even by children with the right supervision, making it a fun activity for the whole family! Staying close to the surface of the water ensures safety, without compromising on the beauty of the sights underwater, even near the surface. Lots of foliage and fish will be waiting to greet you as you explore. This is a definite must-try activity which will satisfy those looking for even more adventure, all while keeping a more laid-back atmosphere via the safety of the snorkel.
