Folegandros Beaches

As we have mentioned many times, Folegandros is an island with relatively many and very beautiful beaches with crystal clear waters that reveal the bottom with its sandy characteristics or the beautiful green rocks, giving it an exotic character, as well as the isolated beaches that one can enjoy by walking through the paths or by getting there by boat, thus avoiding from the trouble of walking. In case you are a lover of trekking the island will definitely enchant you and you will face new challenges, since Folegandros is the ideal place for trekking.
During your stay at the island of Folegandros you will be able to visit some, if not all of the following beaches.  You really cannot say which one is the best. We cannot be objective, so we leave you to make your own choice...

Angali: A beach of unique beauty (with thin sand) in the southern part of the island, at a distance of about 3 kilometers from Hora. A golden beach with tamarisks all along it that offer a shadowy place, with crystal clear waters protected against the Northern wind. It is easy to reach via Karavostassis either by bus or other means, even by boat. Close to the beach there are one or two taverns and a few rooms to let, while very close to the beach is the new settlement that is growing at a steady rate over the last years. Very close to that and also accessible via paths is located the small sandy beach of Fyra (within walking distance of 10-15 minutes) and the beach of Galifos, that can be reached crossing the path that leads to Agios Nikolaos (another 10 minutes of walking). At the beach of Galifos there are also a few rooms to let, however without electricity. This is a real travel back in time.

Agios Nikolaos: A beautiful small sandy and pebbly beach. It is relatively easy accessible, even though there is no road connection, either by ferry from karavostassis or on foot through the paths that start from Angali or Ano Meria (45 minutes walking). At that place there is a restaurant and plenty of shadow from the tamarisk trees that grow all along the coast.

Hohlidia: The beach of the port just in front of the small houses of the settlement. It is a sandy and pebbly beach, with sandy deep-sea bottom and plenty of shadow under the tamarisk trees that surround the beach. Within easy reach, is located one of the most favorite beaches of the island, an ideal choice for families with children since one side of the beach is relatively shallow and most of the times the water is calm. During the summer months, swimming and sailing lessons are available, with the initiative of the Nautical Club of Folegandros. There are also hotels, taverns and bars, all very close to the beach.
Another easily accessible beach is Vardia, that lies next to the port, northwards, while the stairs facilitate your getting down to the grey sand.

Latinaki, Vinchentzou and Pountaki: Some beaches that we come across if we follow the costal road to the settlement Livadi.

Katergo:  An awesome beach with blue water and golden sand with tiny pebbles in the southeastern part of the island. At this area, the inhabitants used to excavate the iron deposit “haematite” not aiming to trade it but in order to paint their homes and boats. This area was called Katergo due to the fact that the excavation procedure was terribly difficult and unhealthy and reminded of slavery. Here there is no shadow, only late in the afternoon, after the sunset. Also it is very far away from any settlement (nearly one hour walking). You will need to carry all necessary things, like water, sun tan oil, hat, medicine and food. You can reach this place either by boat from Karavostassis or on foot, starting off from the settlement Livadi. You should estimate one hour of walking.

Livadi: A beautiful wide sandy beach, full of tamarisk trees that provide plenty of shadow. It lies in the southeastern part of the island and is quite easy to reach from Karavostassis by car. At the area very close to the beach there is a new summer settlement, with a camping and a restaurant.
From this point several wild paths that require a lot of attention start off leading to the beach Katergo. You should estimate one hour of walking.

Livadaki: A beach close to Pharos of Aspropounta. There is little shadow there but the beach is full of small white pebbles and has crystal blue water. There is no road access, so you can reach it either by boat from Karavostassis, or Angali but also on foot from Ano Meria, where the track starts off. It is about an hour of walking, so you should provide for water and some food.

Livadaki: A beach close to Pharos of Aspropounta. There is little shadow there but the beach is full of small white pebbles and has crystal blue water. There is no road access, so you can reach it either by boat from Karavostassis, or Angali but also on foot from Ano Meria, where the track starts off. It is about an hour of walking, so you should provide for water and some food.

Ampeli:
 This small beach is sandy and pebbly. It is a quiet beach with clear blue water and plenty of shadow (a few meters away from the sea), in the southwestern part of the island. There is no road access and it is reached only by boat or on foot through a path from the church of Agios Panteleimonas at Ano Meria. It is about half an hour walking. There is nothing close to the beach, so you should not forget to have with you everything that you may need.

Voreina: It is a beautiful beach with the characteristic green pebbles of Folegandros that make the water look greenish. It is located in the northern part of the island. There is no shadow at this beach while you can reach it only on foot by following the path from Myloi, on the left side of the road between Hora and Ano Meria. You should estimate around 20 –30 minutes walking. It is strongly recommended to have with you everything that you will need, especially water.

Serfiotiko: This is a beach in the northern part of the island that combines sand with pebbles as well as a few rocks. There are a few shadowy spots at the beach, under the tamarisk trees that surround the beach. It is reached only on foot from Ano Meria; a distance of 40-45 minutes walking. Again you should not forget to take water with you.

Agios Georgios: It is a very beautiful sandy and pebbly beach, in the northern part of the island, quite easily accessible, either by car through a dirt road (in a good condition) from Ano Meria or even on foot through the paths that start from Ano Meria. You should estimate about one hour of walking. It is absolutely necessary to have with you everything that you might need, principally water. There is another very beautiful beach nearby, Lygaria.
