Located at the northernmost part of the Cyclades, Andros is the second island in size and only slightly smaller than Naxos. Big mountain ranges, deep gorges and rich vegetation are its main characteristics, which give it a different style than the classical Cycladic one.
Its capital is an architectural gem with plenty of neo-classical houses, big squares and an air of grandeur. It would be quite correct to say that these and not the beaches are the island’s main tourist attractions. However, Andros does posses a fine collection of sandy beaches.
There is very regular ferry connection between Andros and the port of Rafina. The ferry takes nearly 2 hours to get there. However, there is no direct connection between Naxos and Andros.
