Andros
Start the virtual stroll at the place of your choice by selecting a key location...
Agios Kyprianos, a small beach halfway between Gavrio and Batsi
A small beach halfway between Gavrio and Batsi, with a mix of sand and pebbles and a pretty chapel. There is a tavern with a parking and a large terrace in the immediate vicinity.
Agios Petros Beach, between the port of Gavrio and the seaside destination of Batsi
A long sandy beach near the port of Gavrio, equipped and exposed to the wind, with a beach bar and taverns nearby. It's the largest beach in Andros and it's very popular. Buses stop there and it's easy to park.
The Hellenistic tower of Agios Petros, still standing after 24 centuries
A Hellenistic tower probably built between the 4th and 3rd century BC. It had at least 5 floors and is almost 20 m high. You can only see it from the outside and it's not easy to find, but it's worth the hike, the scenery around is amazing!
Apikia, the mountain village where the mineral water of Sariza springs
A village on the road connecting Chora to Batsi over the mountains. It's famous for its Sariza spring, which excellent mineral water is bottled and even exported to other islands. You may have drunk Andros water without knowing it!
A virtual stroll in Batsi, a very popular seaside destination
Our virtual walk starts here, right at the end of the marina's larger pier. It will take you to the end of the beach and in the small secret paths of the village.
The beautiful beaches of Ateni, on the very wild east coast of the island
The north-east coast of Andros, very wild and accessible by bumpy roads, offers great surprises like the beaches of Ateni: a large windy beach south of the chapel, a small beach sheltered from the wind to the north.
Halkolimionas, a beautiful beach on the west coast
A beautiful beach with a bar during the summer season. It is easily accessible by a good road that leaves from the west coast road, at the intersection of the Chora and Ormos Korthiou roads (a few km after Paleopoli). In spring, it is deserted and surrounded by vegetation and flowers.
Liopesi, a quiet corner for a meditative break in front of the sea
Do you wish to sit for a few minutes in a quiet spot with a beautiful view? This nice place with some benches is waiting for you on the road to Batsi, just after the exit of Gavrio, shortly before the beautiful beaches of the west coast.
Menites, the village famous for its springs flowing out of lion´s heads
A small and green village where sources feed a series of fountains with lion's heads. According to the legend, once upon a time, it was wine that was flowing out of the lion's maws and wine festivals were organized here. Naturally, the place is known as the "Fountains of Dionysus".
Pythara waterfalls, a cool oasis near Apikia
The Pythara Falls, near Apikia, are a wonderful hiking destination, especially during springtime. It's a nice walk on an easy path, in amazing landscapes. Our photos and panoramas were taken at the falls and along the trail to give you a preview.
Mountain landscape near Remata, in the hinterland
The road connecting Batsi to the capital Chora over the mountains offers amazing views that invite you to hike. These photos and the 360° panorama were shot near the hamlet of Remata, a small group of houses at the bottom of the valley.
Some panoramas of the old town of Chora, the capital, south-east of the island
At the end of the promontory of Chora, the statue of the Unknown Sailor stands on a beautiful esplanade and salutes the ruins of the old kastro.
