The island of Aphrodite

Adamantas is the port you reach when taking the ferry from Piraeus or other islands of the Aegean Sea.

The second port is called Pollonia and is daily connected with Kimolos. You can also take a boat trip to the beautiful and unknown... Poliaigos island!

Agios Konstantinos and its surrounding area...


Caves of Papafragas

Sarakiniko beach

This is one of the main hot spots of the island! Tip Count on the wind and choose to go for swimming when its direction is opposite to where the beach is located. This means that when the wind is north, it is recommended to head it south, where there won't be any waves at the sea; The contrary also applies.

Sarakiniko or the pirates' beach
