About Astypalea Island All Locations - presentation, information, photos and recommendations
The island of Astypalea, in Greece, is one of the Greek islands of the Aegean Sea and it belongs to the Dodecanese islands group. Chora, the main village on Astypalea island, is small but picturesque. Although the island belongs to the Dodecanese complex, it has an intense Cycladic architecture, with white sugar houses, paved streets and traditional windmills. On a hill above Chora, there is a Venetian Castle that used to protect the island in the Medieval times. The other settlements are mostly tourist places with relaxing beaches. The beaches in close distance to Chora are partly organized with sun beds, umbrellas, taverns and accommodation, while a drive around Astypalea island will bring visitors to many totally secluded places, with few things to do. Agios Konstantinos, Pera Yalos and Livadi are among the most frequented beaches. In the evenings, head to Chora for a lounge drink and a romantic walk across the narrow paths. Holidays in Astypalea is a wonderful experience if you like places off the beaten track.
Chora and the surrounding beaches are the most convenient places to stay during your Astypalea holidays. Accommodation in Chora mostly consists of traditional studios and self-catering apartments, with view to the sea or the Castle.
