Andros island is the northernmost and second biggest of the Cyclades Islands, a high quality alternative destination, with a history dating back to ancient times, outnumbered sightseeing attractions and many settlements to visit. A fairly green island for the Cyclades, Andros offers some really nice beaches, pretty villages and a quiet, relaxed atmosphere.

The capital of the island, Hora is home to famous Greek captains and ship owners, and there is a remarkable combination of medieval, neoclassical and island style evident in its houses. Flights of stairs, a spacious square with trees, narrow streets, remarkable churches and museums, shops, cafes and restaurants play their part in the beauty of the place.

In addition to the sandy beaches, there are rocky coastlines, mountain ranges alternating with fertile plains, lush vegetation and abundantly flowing streams.Batsi is the most tourist developed place in Andros island and it is surrounded by wonderful beaches, including Golden Beach and Agios Petros.
The coastline of Andros is particularly rugged creating many small, picturesque bays, which mostly have good sandy beaches. Some of the largest bays on the island which are worth mentioning are Gavrio, Batsi, Hora and Korthion, all of which have organised harbours, Also is the bay of Fourni and in the north is the beach of Agios Petros, which is mentioned by Lloyds as a safe haven for boats.

Andros is definitely worth a visit and can be seen solely as a cultural tourism destination, thanks to its museums. The globally acknowledged Museum of Modern Art, houses unique collections of paintings and sculptures. The Cyclades Olive Museum is a fine example of a small pre-industrial, animal powered, olive oil producing unit that is definitely a must-see site.

Korthi lies in the southern part of the island. It is crossed by two mountain massives, Gerakones in the north and Rachi in the south. In between lies the fertile Korthi valley and the impressive gorge in Dipotamata, with plenty of running water and the numerous water-mills. The area dominates the Kastro Faneromenis (Faneromeni Castle), old middle-ages fortification, with spectacular view of the Aegean Sea. The village lines the long road that curves right around the edge of the huge bay. There is a long paved walkway is on the seaward side of the road, edged by a concrete sea wall and protected by large rocks that have been dumped in the sea to act as a breakwater.
