Paros, Anti Paros or Naxos for 3 nights?

Hi,

I am going to Mykonos in late May and would also like to spend 3 nights at a less touristy island. What are the pros and cons of going to Paros, Anti Paros or Naxos? I am not sure which one to go to. Am a single female traveler and enjoy relaxing as well as getting a feel for the local culture and meeting friendly people while traveling

All are great choices. One advantage of Antiparos is that it is very small and you won't be lost in the crowd. It is a very friendly island and easy to meet and get to know people there.

Hi,

I go along with Heimdall's opinion on Antiparos.

Anti Paros can be very quiet out of season - which can be good. You could quickly head back to Paros if it's too quiet though....

Late May is actually a perfect time to be on Antiparos. It's just starting to get busy, but not so much that waiters and other locals don't have time to stop for a chat.

I second the AntiParos idea. The other islands are great, but small, comfortable AntiParos would be a nice change from Mykonos. It was the one island I wish I had spent more time at on my last trip.

Yet another vote for Antiparos. As a single traveller myself I find smaller islands better places to make friends with other people.
