|Andros - North Cyclades, Greek Islands: Crewed Yacht Charters & Holidays|
|Greek Charters: Andros||Andros, Greece Islands|
|Andros, the most
northerly island in the Cyclades and the second-largest in
the group, is also among the most beautiful. Successive rangers
of mountains with steep sides, separated by gorges, riverbeds
and three large valleys planted with olive trees, figs, oranges,
lemons and vines through which run numerous streams go to make
this a landscape which often goes beyond what we think of
as typically 'Cycladic'. The mountains end as rocky cliffs
or steep promontories, while at the mouths of the valleys
are sandy beaches.
In the south-east is Andros or Hora, the capital of the island and its second most important harbor. This is a most attractive town, with neo-classical mansions side-by side with Cycladic houses, steep and narrow alleys lined with arcades, fine churches and two pretty squares in the center of a town which will make a lasting impression.
Andros is home to many of Greece's seamen, and interesting cultural events take place there all the year round.
There are good swimming beaches at Nimborio, Parporti, Korthi bay near Batsi, Gavrio, Vitali and elsewhere.
Andros has good tourist amenities and can easily deal with the steadily increasing numbers of visitors who choose if for its natural beauties, its attractive villages, its historical monuments, its superb beaches and its medicinal springs.
