Kastelorizo Guide

Located in the south east Mediterranean Sea, the Greek island of Kastelorizo lies around 2 km off the south coast of Turkey, 570 km to the south east of Athens, midway between the islands of Rhodes and Antalya and 280 km from Cyprus which is to the south east. The small island, which measures around 9 sq. km., has three capes: Agios Stefanos to the north, Pounenti in the south west and Nifti in the east. Located on a wide bay, between the capes of Agios Stefanos and Nifti, is the island's main harbour and only town.

The island's terrain mainly consists of high mountains which lead to cliffs down to the sea. In the more fertile areas of the island you can see olives, grapes and beans growing. The houses in the island's town are of Anatolian style and tend to be slender with timber balconies. To the east of the entrance to the harbour there is are remnants of a single story, former Italian governate, erected in 1926. Close by, is the island's former Ottoman mosque which dates back to the second half of the 18th century. The building has since been restored and is now a museum.

Ferries from the port connect the island to Rhodes, Kos, Nisyros, Piraeus, Kalymnos, Symi and Astypalea.


Nisyros Guide

The Greek island of Nisyros is one of the Dodecanese group of islands and lies in the Aegean Sea, between the island of Kos and the island of Tilos. Nisyros is regarded as one of the most beautiful islands in the region and is largely untouched by tourism. The island, which has a coastline of around 28 km, was created, according to mythology, during the war between Gods and Giants where Poseidon chased the Giant Polyvotis down to Kos, cut a part of it and threw it to his enemy, sinking him forever in to the bottom of the Aegean Sea. This rock is Nisyros and the volcano's eruptions are said to be the angry breathing of the defeated Giant.

The island's capital, and home to the island's port, is Mandraki and is one of the largest villages on Nisyros. Mandraki is characterised by charming cobblestoned streets and squares and typical Greek whitewashed two storeyed houses complete with wooden balconies. The nightlife is not very intense but you will surely have a good time in the village where there are little tavernas and some bars to enjoy.

It can be reached by ferry from Piraeus, Kos and Rhodes.
