Greece - Folegandros

Small, rugged and remote, Folegandros is where history and tradition mingle to create a heady, almost sacred, atmosphere. With only three main settlements and some strenuous walking between them, yachting around the island is the perfect way to take in the dramatic landscape while relaxing in luxury.

Indeed, it was recently voted as one of the most beautiful islands in the world.

Folegandros – Top yacht charter destination

Dock at the little harbour of Karavostasis, on the east coast, and explore the village, with its whitewashed buildings and beach bars. The main village is about three kilometres away while Livadi beach is a kilometre south. The island’s relative inaccessibility means it avoids being touristy and offers many pristine coves and coastal stretches – perfect for an exclusive getaway aboard a luxury yacht.

Folegandros – Things To Do

Drop anchor off sandy Katergo beach, which is accessible only on foot or by sea. Here you will find crystal-clear waters and a 40-metre-deep cliff offering pristine diving conditions teeming with fish. Stop in at Georgitsi cave and marvel at the way the light reflecting off the rocks turns everything aquamarine. When you’re ready to stretch your legs on land, walk 15 minutes up the paved road from Hora to the Panagia church on the hill and watch the sunset paint the island blush-pink

Folegandros – Gourmet Experience

Greek fare with a modern twist is the hallmark at Blue Cuisine, an elegant eatery in the main village with views of the Panagia church. Try the sardine bruschetta with sundried tomatoes and orange and the smoked prawns wrapped in vine leaves. Mama’s Pita is known for its outstanding souvlaki – chunks of succulent meat grilled on a skewer. Another laidback option is family-run Pounda, which has a pretty courtyard and serves up traditional fare such as octopus and Greek salad.

Folegandros – Nightlife

Spend a balmy evening in the courtyard of Astarti Bar, in the central square, sipping on rakomelo – a traditional tipple comprised of raki liqueur, honey, cinnamon and cloves. Nearby Rakentia is a cosy cocktail bar serving up funky music and chic décor. Small, laidback BaRaki, also in the main village, is a casual, unpretentious spot for a quiet drink while Folegandros Brewery brews its own beers and is a vibrant place to sample the range of ales, lagers and pilsners.
