Andros

Andros (Introduction): Andros is the greenest island of the Cyclades, with a total area of 374 square kilometers. It has a population of approximately 9,000 inhabitants. Andros is the second island in size, (after that of Naxos).
The coastline is mainly rocky with several protected bays and four rivers running across the island through fertile valleys ideal for farming. There are, also, small rock islets surrounding Andros, some of them being Gavrionisia, Theotokos and Plati.
The island of Andros offers traditional villages, some of which are situated on the slopes of the mountains, while others are built close to the sea. Andros consists of many torrents and plenty of springs, rich in minerals. The most famous of all is the so-called «Sariza springs» and its water is distributed all over Greece.
Unlike other islands, Andros is rich in water having, thus, many water and wind mills. In the area of Korthi, the visitor can see more than forty windmills, all being excellent samples of pre-industrial technology.
If you visit the island, you will have a great choice of hotels, tavernas and nightclubs. You can travel to Andros only by boat from Rafina, (Attika), and Thessaloniki.
