Antipaxos... beaches. Agrapidia
Antipaxos island is famous for its stunning beaches. Every summer thousands of Greek and foreign visitors come to take a dip in the woderful waters and explore Antipaxos and its unique beaches by tours and day cruises to Paxos and Antipaxos, with small boats that anchor close to the beaches.
In the afternoon they take off as the choises for accommodation are limited and most travellers prefer to stay mostly at Gaios and Paxos.
Voutoumi. Beautiful beach with exotic beauty, considered one of the best in the world with the greenery to ends at the water's edge. It is flooded by many tourists with boats coming to admire and enjoy its unique color waters. During the summer, Voutoumi seems like a cosmopolitan beach because of the crowds who visit it.
Vrika. It is located in a beautiful bay, where here the vegetation reaches the edge of the sea. The sand and the white pebbles along with the beautiful waters provide an excellent look to this beach.
On the beach and within a walking distance, you will find one or two restaurants with good food and great views.
Mesovrika. It is nestled between the beaches Vrika and Voutoumi, with white pebbles and crystal clear waters. It is preferred by the friends of nudism.
Rodovani. Rodovani beach is one of Antipaxos beaches, on the west coast of the island. The crystal clear waters and the pebble beach do not attract many visitors, as most prefer the two most famous beaches of Vrika and Voutoumi, but it is mainly due to the fact that the excursion boats from Paxos have easier access to them and a most impressive landscape.
Sarakiniko.Sarakiniko is another small pebble beach of Antipaxos, in the southwestern part of the island, and the vegetation reaches to the coast. It has no tourist facilities, and most visitors are the owners of boats.
Agrapidia is the only harbor of the small island that connects the island with Paxos. It is filled with fishing boats and vessels that belong to the residents in order to communicate with Paxos. Above the harbor, you will find the only church on the island, Agios Aimilianos.
