DODECANESE

Agathonisi

Size: 14 sq km
Martian Risk: nil

Agathonisi (trans: the kind island .. very apt), the most northern of the Dodecanese islands, is around twice the size of neighbouring Arki with four times the number of inhabitants (excluding goats). The whole of the island, along with the north of Arki and the west of Lipsi, is a Natura 2000 protected site, with the aim of protecting local birdlife and habitats.

Agathonisi: the beach outside Marys place

Finding a secluded beach isn't difficult, but they are mostly shingle. The small beach at the port is delightful so no need to stray far from the tavernas if you dont want to. After Stephanie's exploratory visit in 2019, two of our regular clients visited both islands. (Quotes in the description to the right ==> are from Pat and Roger's report back to us.)

Maria's 13 traditional but well-equipped rooms are right on the beach in the centre of the port. "Lovely place, right on pleasant beach with shade from trees, easy swimming. Hostess so friendly, no English but we got along. She gave us figs and grapes from her garden every day. Daughter Irini a little English. We loved the sea facing room with balcony as we could watch the ferries come in. We ate breakfast next door, had meals in a restaurant up near Megalo Chorio. The island only just opened, all excellent food. We loved both islands (i.e. +Arki) but we like quiet, slow paced places for our Greek holidays."
