Folegandros can satisfy varied tastes, offering secluded sandy beaches as well as popular seaside taverns serving fresh fish right by the water. Shade from tamarisk trees, transparent waters, and typical Folegandros stone can all be encountered on the island’s beaches, thus giving the coast its typical features. The more secluded beaches are accessible on foot.
The beaches are easy to reach by tourist boat, car or coach. The most secluded beaches can be accessed on foot. Folegandros is an ideal place for hiking: the footpaths between the dry stone walls pass by old mills, abandoned themonies, solitary chapels, and cross the whole island.
