Discover the Greece of old at Folegandros, a small island that is part of the Cyclades within the Aegean Sea. Arriving on a speedboat from the neighboring islands, the harbor village of Karavostasi is the first port of call in Folegandros. Connected by a single main road, a bus serves the charming villages on the island, apart from mopeds. Hora, the main town, sits on a plateau and extends to the old town Kastro on the cliff edge that boasts stunning seascape vistas. Swathed in white, cubist-style buildings flank the pedestrianized cobblestone streets. The famous Church of Panagia with its zigzag staircase is the best spot on the island to witness sunsets. The hilltop Ano Meria village is dotted with ancient ruins amid terraced fields and traditional farmhouses. A network of coastal hiking trails and donkey tracks showcase Folegandros’ dramatic landscape, leading to secluded beaches and coves for swimming and snorkeling. In town, enjoy seafood specialties and raki at friendly local establishments overlooking central squares.
