Folegandros Guide

Located in the Cyclades group of islands, the Greek island of Folegandros lies in the Aegean Sea and forms the Cycladic island chain along with the islands of Sikinos, Ios, Anafi and Santorini. It is a fairly small island, measuring around 32 sq. km, and has around 760 inhabitants who primarily live in three villages: Chora, Karavostasis, which is also the island's port, and Ano Meria. For visitors to the island looking for a vantage point to take in the island's magnificent scenery then the Church of Panaghia is located on the top of a hill and offers great views of Chora and the island's west coast. There are a number of great beaches on the island but visitors should note that all of them are fairly difficult to reach. Some can be reached after a bit of a walk whereas others can only be accessed by boat. The two beaches that can be reached by car are the beaches at Karavostasi and Angali.

The island can be reached by conventional ferry, Highspeed ferry or Flying Dolphin from Piraeus, Rafini, the other islands of the Cycladic islands, Crete, Rhodes and the rest of the Dodecanese islands and the East Aegean Islands. Travel times vary depending on destination and ferry type but journey times range from 3.5 hours to 11 hours. The island's harbour, Karavostasi, has a few shops and restaurants for visitors to enjoy.


Thirasia Guide

The Greek island of Thirasia is a small island that is located to the west of the island of Santorini in the Cyclades group of islands. It has a population of around 250 people and are mainly employed in agriculture. The small island's cliffs are less steep than those found on Santorini but ascending its 250 steps from the port can still be quite a challenge especially during the summer when temperatures can be very high. Stunning views from the island include the caldera and the sunsets and sunrises. The island's only beach is full of pebbles and pumice and is located next to the small harbour. The island's only track will lead you to the Church of Agia Irini, which is said to have given Santorini its name (Santa Irini - Santorini).
