I saw a picture of a wooden "TO THE BEACH" sign, posted by @bil.prag today and I got jealous! So my turn to do a little bit archive digging and reminiscing of my trip to Andros, one of the most popular Greek islands! The boat trip from the port of Rafina was just a couple of hours and the first thing to do when I arrived was to pay my respects to the "Gold Beach" :)
I am not usually make accommodation proposals but boutique hotel Eleni is a place to remember, filled with the history of the island and I could not omit it from my story!
Walking around Chora is a constant reminder of the glorious past of the island. The plethora of impressive mansions (renovated or not) are the undeniable signs of the wealth of the inhabitants when Andros was a major shipping center and hometown of some of the biggest Greek shipowners.
Nowadays is a beautiful destination for relaxing vacations close to nature but with a cosmopolitan vibe at the same time! If you ever come to Greece you may want to consider a short (or long) visit there, I am sure it won't let you down!
