Folegandros Guide

Located in the Cyclades group of islands, the Greek island of Folegandros lies in the Aegean Sea and forms the Cycladic island chain along with the islands of Sikinos, Ios, Anafi and Santorini. It is a fairly small island, measuring around 32 sq. km, and has around 760 inhabitants who primarily live in three villages: Chora, Karavostasis, which is also the island's port, and Ano Meria. For visitors to the island looking for a vantage point to take in the island's magnificent scenery then the Church of Panaghia is located on the top of a hill and offers great views of Chora and the island's west coast. There are a number of great beaches on the island but visitors should note that all of them are fairly difficult to reach. Some can be reached after a bit of a walk whereas others can only be accessed by boat. The two beaches that can be reached by car are the beaches at Karavostasi and Angali.

The island can be reached by conventional ferry, Highspeed ferry or Flying Dolphin from Piraeus, Rafini, the other islands of the Cycladic islands, Crete, Rhodes and the rest of the Dodecanese islands and the East Aegean Islands. Travel times vary depending on destination and ferry type but journey times range from 3.5 hours to 11 hours. The island's harbour, Karavostasi, has a few shops and restaurants for visitors to enjoy.

Santorini (Thira) Guide

The Greek island of Santorini is one of the Cyclades group of islands that lies in the south Aegean Sea. The island has very much been shaped by its volcanic past which has created a rather unusual landscape in places. A popular site on the island is the water filled 'Caldera' crater and is surrounded by a wall of colourful cliffs which are packed full of charming houses. The island is also known for its lovely beaches, its busy port, its archaeological finds and the wonderful sunsets which are best viewed from the village of Oia, on the island's northernmost tip.

The island's beaches are distinctive in that they are mainly made up of dark volcanic sands, which can get very hot during the summer, and therefore a sun lounger or towel are an essential piece of kit. The best beaches tend to be located around the eastern coastline and always popular is the stretch found at Perissa. However, a little to the south is Perivolos Beach which is also lovely as is Red Beach which is close to ancient Akrotiri, where the red cliffs are hard to miss.
