Sea kayaking around Antiparos
The weather seemed to be changing after a couple of days with southern wind. We had an early start, in order to take advantage of the sunny day with no wind. We met up with Alexandros from Sea Kayak Paros around 9:00 in Naousa and we left immediately.
After a while we were in Pounda where we got the boat to Antiparos. It only takes about 10 minutes to cross from Paros to Antiparos, so very soon we were on the road again heading south. After a short drive we arrived at Agios Georgios, where we got ready and got in the sea.
The sea was calm, so paddling was easy and relaxing, while the proximity to the surface of the sea gave us a unique perspective of the wonderfully blue waters of the Aegean.
We paddled around for a while off the southern coast of Antiparos and we got to discover littles caves and an astonishing landscape.
After a short break, a swim in the crystal clear waters and a snack we got in our kayaks again and crossed from Antiparos to Despotiko. Despotiko is a small island south west of Antiparos which is not inhabited, however it has an archaeological interest beacause of the sanctuary of Apollo and Artemis.
The waters around Despotiko are pretty impressive as well. Light turquoise and transparent.
At Despotiko we briefly visited the archaeological site and the had a picnic on the beach. We enjoyed the tranquillity of the uninhabited paradise before heading back where it all started!
What a great day!
