Agathonisi: Absolute relaxation…


Αγαθονήσι, Δωδεκάνησα

Agathonisi is the north most islet of the Dodecanese islands complex. Today the population of the island is about 120 people. The oldest settlement is Megalo Chorio or “Big Village” with 80 inhabitants. This village has been built in such a way so that it is not visible from the sea, thus protect­ing it from pirates.

Built in the same way and for the same reason is Mikro Chorio-‘Small Village’ with 20 inhabitants. The third and newest settlement is St. George with 20 inhabitants and is found in the inner­most part of the bay from which its name is derived.
