Folegandros is a small island that has an area of 32 km2, located between the famous and fashionable islands of Paros and Santorini.
Due to the simple and relaxing atmosphere that reigns all around the island it is considered as the "island of Peace" and an untouched “piece of true Greece”. Folegandros is an island with many mountainous areas and a rocky ground. The island impresses all visitors with the alterations of scenery. The wild mountainous bulks, the lacy shores, the green fields and the traditional settlements, create magical scenery.
With traditional Cycladic architecture, breathtaking views and secluded beaches, it is ideal for those wanting to relax.

Folegandros has three small villages, Karavostasi (the port), the Chora, and Ano Meria. The Chora of Folegandros with the famous Venetian castle is built at a 200 m altitude. It is probably the most picturesque cycladic settlement. Chora is comprised of two settlements, the Medieval, inside the Venetian castle and the modern one, outside the castle walls. Folegandros Chora, closed to car and motorcycle traffic, has a unique "center" of three squares in a row, with trees under which to enjoy a drink or food in a quiet,romantic atmosphere.
Karavostasi is the island's port, where visitors will find fishing boats intermingled with and yachts and can find traditional small tourist boats that go to uniquely beautiful virgin beaches with crystal waters and deep blue Aegean color Ano Meria is a rural village with the typical "kafeneio" and taverns,that is spread over cultivated fields with a myriad of dry stoned walls.
At Ano Meria is the Laographic museum, which is one of a kind museum is the first "Open Air Museum" in the whole of Greece. The museum symbolizes the quintessential cottage house, consisting of the principal house, the oven, cellar as well as the winepress and a miniature vineyard.

There are a variety of mostly quiet beaches around the island. Visitors can find some small beaches around the port area of Karavostasi. Specifically, about 1 km from Karavostasi is the beaches of Vardia and Livadi. From Ano Meria by 40 to 90 minutes walking many beaches can be reached, the finest being Agios Georgios, towards the northeast.
From Hora a road heads north, hugging the cliff top and offering breathtaking views before descending sharply to the lovely sandy beach of Vathi Bay and the beaches of Angali and Agios Nikolaos.

The island's specialty is a dish called "matsata", which is handmade pasta with either rabbit or chicken.
