Folegandros, a Quiet Island with a Touch of Adventure
Folegandros, named after the Phoenician word for rocky, is one of the smallest yet most thriving islands of the Cyclades Greek Islands. Folegandros is quite popular with visitors looking for quieter holidays, but the past few years more and more people have been discovering its beauty: the Karavostasis port with its crystalline waters is a romantic view for a dinner; the Kastro, built by the Venetian Marco Sanudo, excites the explorer within everyone; the Chrysospilia, a cave that lies beneath the monastery of the Panagia at Hora, which has not been fully explored yet, can be visited by caique. Of course, if at the end of the day youíre looking for some fun, you wonít be disappointed by the lively nightlife of the squares of Hora. Donít forget to taste the fine quality honey of Folegandros.
