Nisyros Guide

Located in the Dodecanese group of islands in the Aegean Sea, the island of Nisyros lies between the neighbouring islands of Kos and Tilos. The island's coast has a few sandy beaches, which are generally located in the north east part of the island, but generally the Nisyros coastline is characterised by rocky or pebbled beaches. The island's volcano is active but luckily for tourists it is not erupting and Fumaroles can be found at the craters. According to Greek mythology, the island was formed when Poseidon cut off a part of Kos and threw it onto the giant Polybotes to stop him from escaping. Fifth century ancient walls, which were originally part of the acropolis on the island, can be found near Mandraki and the island's ancient name was Porphyris.

From the island's port there are conventional and high speed ferry services that generally depart to the other islands of the Dodecanese. There are also services to the Cycladic islands and also to Crete, but usually via another island.


Astypalea Guide

The Greek island of Astypalea lies in the eastern Aegean Sea and is one of the 12 islands that make up the Dodecanese group of islands. The island, which sits at the point where the Dodecanese meet the Cyclades islands, has a long history and is characterised by typically Greek whitewashed villages and lovely beaches. Astypalaia is also the westernmost island of the Dodecanese and is naturally separated into Mesa Nisi (the inner island, western part) and Exo Nisi (the outer island, eastern part) by a thin strip of land less than 100 m wide.

The island's capital, and home to its port, is Chora and is regarded as one of the most picturesque towns in the Aegean. The town sits atop a rock that protrudes into the sea, forming two bays. Towering above Chora is a castle with the white domes of Evangelistria and Agios Georgios churches visible above its walls. Around the castle lie Chora’s houses with whitewashed walls, blue doors and windows, and wooden balconies.

The island is connected to the port of Piraeus and also to the other islands in the Dodecanese, the Cycladic islands and to Crete.
