About Folegandros Island
Folegandros is a sunlit welcome. The people who have been returning here year after year, who have established bonds with the island and its inhabitants, come together between a warm welcome and the sweet “au revoir” of goodbye. Folegandros is the island of good measure. The mild tourism development of the last two decades has allowed the island to preserve the full extent of its character and physiognomy. At the same time, however, modern infrastructure and organized tourism services have been developed.
The inhabitants of Folegandros continue to care for their land and enjoy life in their own way, which they now share with more and more of the island’s friends.
Upon arrival at Karavostassis port, Folegandros will start to unfold its beauties one by one. You can wonder around the narrow paved streets of Chora and the Castro, climb the Panaghia rock with its panoramic view of the Aegean, swim in the deserted or popular beaches, or explore nature along the footpaths that criss-cross every corner of the island. Homemade traditional food can be savoured in Chora, Karavostassis, Agali or Ano Meria, while long nights drinking rakomelo await you in the squares of Chora.
Folegandros belongs to the south-western Cyclades. It has a maximum altitude of 455 metres, an area of 32 square kilometres and around 650 inhabitants. It is 104 nautical miles away from Piraeus port.
