Thirasia Guide

Located in the Cyclades group of islands is the Greek island of Thirasia, or Therasia, and lies in the Aegean Sea to the north west of Nea Kameni, a small island formed in recent centuries following volcanic activity. Located next to the island's small harbour is a pebble beach, which is the island's only beach. The only track of the island will take you to the church of Agia Irini which is said to have given Santorini its current name (Santa Irini - Santorini).

The Cyclades are an island group in the Aegean Sea, south east of mainland Greece and a former administrative prefecture of Greece. They are one of the island groups which constitute the Aegean archipelago. The name refers to the islands around the sacred island of Delos. The Cyclades is where the native Greek breed of cat (the Aegean cat) originated.

Visitors usually get to the island by boat as a part of a volcano trip that first gets you to Nea Kameni for a visit to the crater of the volcano then at the hot springs of Palaia Kameni for swimming and then to Thirasia for a few minutes before they head to Oia for the sunset.


Folegandros Guide

The Greek island of Folegandros is part of the Cyclades group of islands and lies in the Aegean Sea. The island, who derives its name from the son of King Minos, is popular with visitors who like its unspoilt beaches, crystal clear waters and traditional architecture. Popular attractions on the island include the whitewashed Church of the Assumption of the Virgin Mary which overlooks the town of Hora, or Chora, and is reached by walking along a stone path. It is said that the church was built on the site of an ancient temple and contains ancient inscriptions and statues. The silver plated icon of the Virgin Mary, which according to tradition is miraculous, is paraded around the town in a procession that takes place every year on Easter Sunday.

The island's harbour is located at Karavostasis which is the perfect departure point for trips to the beaches of Vitzetzo, Hohlidia, Livadi and Pountaki. From the port there are ferry departures to the port of Piraeus, Rafini, the other islands of the Cyclades, the Dodecanese islands, Crete and Rhodes.
