Antiperatos beach is actually a place of three consecutive coves, with fine pebbles and exquisite waters. Located on the western part of the island, this is the perfect spot for those enjoying water sports. There are strong winds on several days, making it a splendid experience for surfers. However, this is not a fully organized beach and therefore you should bring your own food and drink. The beach is found near Ammoua beach. Sand and fine pebbles, along with superb views to the sea and sunset, compose a wonderful place to visit and enjoy throughout your stay. And there is a beach bar on site, allowing you to taste perfect delicacies and sip on some iced cold coffee or cocktails.

On the southern part of the island, Helatros ranks among the finest beaches of Kasos for a unique reason. Boasting delicate pebbles and turquoise waters, the bay of Helatros dates back to antiquity and the Minoan era. This is when it served as shelter for the boats on rough days. Another great place for windsurfing and water sports, away from the crowds and noise. And finally, a small islet to the north of Kasos is called Armathia. You may only reach the islet by boat. The beach of Marmara is a sight for sore eyes, featuring silky sand, imposing rocks and cobalt blue waters. A sublime place for swimming, soaking under the sun and snorkeling.
