Overview

This remote Cycladic island, tucked between Ios and Milos, is one of the quietest, most secluded Greek Islands you could wish to find. The port area of Alopronia (sometimes called Skala) is where you will be staying. Two or three tavernas and a lovely beach (mostly sand) are close to your accommodation. The noticeable absence of the usual swarm of motor-bikes, the scourge of so many a Greek Island, is a godsend.

Ultra-lazy days pottering between beach/taverna/accommodation can be punctuated by a caique trip to the beach of Agios Nikolaos (subject to demand). Undoubtedly, you will wish to visit the fortress hill village of Hora/Kastro. Set upon a ridge overlooking the sea, this charming settlement with 2 tavernas, a post office and delightful main square is a million miles from mass-market tourism. A further hour on foot to the west and a partly ruined monastery, formerly a look-alike Roman temple which later metamorphosed into a Christian church, will materialise in the heat haze. Walking back down to Skala from Hora/Kastro can take an hour, but the magnificent scenery and views are worth it.
