in East Mediterranean
A world famous island, attracting visitors from around the globe, including well-known artists and intellectuals. They are attracted by the more than twenty sandy beaches with clear waters for delightful swimming. Visitors also enjoy wandering along the whitewashed narrow streets with brilliant white box-shaped houses adorned with bright colored doors and balconies and stepped walls for sitting on. After a leisurely day enjoying the quiet private corners of the Island, ordinary vacationers nestle happily side-by-side with the jet set and yacht setters in the numerous bars and discos with their nightlife and sounds that never end. Beach parties, happenings, and fashion shows take place every summer, or if they choose, visitors can still find quiet places for a tranquil afternoon. Sights: Aegean Nautical museum, over a hundred small churches, the Agricultural Museum housed in a converted windmill. Delicacies: “Kopanico”, a pepper flavor white cheese, “Amygdalota” almond delights, and “soumada”, fermented almond cordial.
