AGATHONISSI ISLAND

Highly representative amongst the tiny Greek islands, Agathonissi remains even now an unspoilt destination.

There are three villages on the island except the harbour Ag Georgios: Katholiko, a practically abandoned fishing village, Megalo Chorio, where most islanders live, and Mikro Chorio. Agathonissi is an ideal place to visit for those who wish to spend their holidays away from mass tourism as it is one of the last "paradise" islands of the Aegean sea.
