Folegandros is a sunlit welcome. The people who have been returning here year after year, who have established bonds with the island and its inhabitants, come together between a warm welcome and the sweet “au revoir” of goodbye. The inhabitants of Folegandros continue to care for their land and enjoy life in their own way, which they now share with more and more of the island’s friends.
Upon arrival at Karavostassis port, Folegandros will start to unfold its beauties one by one. You can wonder around the narrow paved streets of Hora and the Kastro, climb the Panagia rock with its panoramic view of the Aegean, swim in the deserted or popular beaches, or explore nature along the footpaths that criss-cross every corner of the island.
Karavostassis (Hohlidia) Position: The beach at Karavostassis port is located in front of the settlement’s houses.
A family beach with shade from tamarisk trees throughout its length. There are bars, taverns and hotels near the sea.
Nearby beaches: Vardia, by the port, with easy access (stone steps).
The bars in Karavostassis are ideal for quieter nights: the people who fill the taverns for ouzo and fresh fish during the day, come here at night for quiet music and a drink by the sea.
