The Eco-Rich Island of Water and Plant Life

Return to the past and visit the first pasta factory of the island. You will discover well-preserved watermills and towers with the typical architecture of Andros.

Enjoy nature as Andros has three characteristics in ample amounts: Lush vegetation, abundant water and wind. Discover an unknown and well hidden ecological treasure: the wetland / biotope of Achla. A landscape full of plant life with lush vegetation, tall trees that block the sun's rays from passing through, waterfalls and natural pools.

Swim in one of the loveliest beaches of the Mediterranean, Achla beach, with its distinctive white pebbles and sparkling green waters. Become one with the locals, learn the history of the island with most captains and take a tour of their homes. Take a stroll through the picturesque tiny streets of the Town of Andros. Learn how to make the traditional omelet of Andros referred by the locals as "froutalia" and enjoy the taste of this fine recipe. Cycle and go horseback riding by the sea, in a poetic setting. Try all the traditional flavors of the land and do not hesitate to ask for recipes from the local women.

The people of Andros are so hospitable and welcoming that your wish will be their command. Swim in the waters of "Old Lady Jumping" beach, the Old Ship Wreck, and dozens of other beautiful beaches. And because Tinos is one step away from Andros, we will guide you on a boating trip up the Strait of Tinos with, taking the necessary swimming breaks along the way. As for a place to relax: You will enjoy the breathtaking sunset in Batsi, accompanied by a nice dinner by the sea or a delicious cocktail. Andros has it all.
