This little haven in the Aegean Sea is a peaceful and rocky place to spend a few days. Known for having a wonderful climate and a surprising number of beautiful beaches, Folegandros is one of those islands that you can’t believe you had never heard of before.
One of the strangest sights is the series of walls that have been built across the island as though creating a small fortress of the whole area, these were actually built for cultivating cereals and not for defence. The island is becoming more and more popular with the ‘European elite’ as a number of slightly more expensive hotels and restaurants begin to creep in, but it is still essentially like the Greece of old with romantic squares and taverns. In order to reach the vast majority of beaches it is necessary to rent either a car or, more romantically, a boat. This does, however, lend the beaches a very peaceful, unspoiled air which is very difficult to find in many other places in Europe. For accommodation it is possible to stay in both very expensive hotels and cheap villas, all of which should meet a reasonable standard but should be book in advance during the summer months.
