Overview

Introduction

Andros is the second largest island of the group (after Naxos). Due to the many underground springs much of the island remains green and fresh throughout the summer, making Andros a paradise for walkers: there are mountains, valleys, monasteries and some 70 villages to explore - please see the Holiday Ideas tab below for more details.

Andros’ many beaches are mostly superb, ranging from long sandy crescents (such as that at Batsi) to secluded coves, all lapped by a turquoise-clear sea. And it is Batsi where most visitors choose to stay. This small resort-village has a friendly relaxed Greek air, fine beaches to either side, a good choice of restaurants and cafés, a handful of bars, even an open-air cinema showing the latest releases (in English!).

Andros Town, the atmospheric island capital since the Venetians arrived in the 13th century, makes a good day-trip by local bus. Old meets new here as its Archaeological Museum and Museum of Modern Art are each highly regarded. For trips further afield ferries run to Tinos and Mykonos.

Unlike the more famous Cycladic islands, tourism to Andros is pretty low-key (albeit busy with Athenians at weekends and in August). Coupled with its fine beaches, verdant countryside, authentic Greek atmosphere and ease of access, a visit here is highly recommended.

Holiday Ideas

Andros is one of the best of all Greek islands for walkers. An extensive network of stone paths and trails criss cross the island. Following considerable work some of these have now been combined to create the 100 km Andros Route which has recently (October 2015) been certified by the European Quality Certificate in the 'Leading Holiday Trails - Best of Europe' category thereby firmly establishing Andros as a leading walking destination.

For further information there is an excellent website which also has downloadable walking guidebooks and maps.
