Beaches of Andros for water sports: Windsurfers prefer the beach of Mylos, due to the constant winds, where people loving having fun to the sea with water sports like jet ski, parasailing and more are choosing the beach of Batsi.
A beach protected from the winds. The beach of Apothikes, where you will find sun loungers and as well as free parts, is your beach to be if you don’t like the winds blowing. The beach is at the northeast part of the island of Andros.
Tip: The famous beach. Probably the most famous beach of Andros is the “Tis Grias To Pidima” because of the rock standing in the sea and the story that accompanies this formation. The legend has it that an old lady opened the doors of the castle of Kochylos and let the pirates in. She couldn’t though bare the shame of her action and she jumped into the sea where she became a rock.
Our overview continues with more beaches to reach up to the beach of Zorgos where the Aegea Blue Cycladic Resort is located!
