DODECANESE

Astypalea

Size: 18 km x 12 km
Martian Risk:
nil

Although it is part of the Dodecanese Astypalea has more of a feel of the Cyclades, especially the whitewashed Chora, surmounted by the impressive ruins of a Byzantine castle, which is splendidly floodlit each evening. The butterfly shaped island has some magnificent sandy beaches, some archaeological interest including good Roman mosaics, and seldom gets busy except when the Athenians descend in August. Boat trips around the island give a chance to visit otherwise inaccessible beaches. Car or moped hire are available. Ferry connections allow combining a visit with Kalymnos or Amorgos or Naxos, and apart from air connections from Athens one can also fly to Leros, Kos & Rhodes.
