DESTINATIONS greece astypalaia Do & See Vathi


The shape of the shoreline near the village of Vathi makes its waters appear a stunning crystal-blue color. In and around the village, see the whimsical rock formations of the Drakos Cave, the remains of an ancient Minoan settlement at their entrance, and the lost lake of Chameni Limni.

Do & See

There is plenty to do and see in and around the island. Those who dare venture out of the island's attractive, well-groomed Chora will be duly rewarded with nature trails, secluded coves and beaches, remains of ancient structures, and a rare sense of discovery in virgin lands. Heading even further out, smaller islands very close to Astypalaia are perfectly reachable by boat (tours are offered throughout, especially during high season).
