Andros, For a Different Kind of Vacation
Andros is the northernmost and second biggest island of the Cyclades, but thatís only typical since it's completely different from any other island of the Cycladic Islands you might know. The beauty of Andros lies in the noble stone houses and the abundance of water flowing from everywhere, the ports of Gavrio and Batsi and the neoclassic architecture. One thing that may shock you is Androsí lack of nightlife, but you'll be glad to know that the alternative experiences it offers outbalance this. Due to its mountainous shape, Andros is ideal for traveling on foot through the villages. Andros has more than 3 museums and at least 5 monasteries and the sandy beaches on the west side of Andros are ravishing, with the brilliant example of "Tis Grias to Pidima".
