Posidonia: Also known as “De la Gracia”. Plenty of neoclassical villas with towers and big courtyards used to host some of the richest people of the island. Try to discover them beyond the dense pine trees. The most famous villa is called “Tsiropina mansion” and till recently, it was the town hall of one of the three municipalities of the island.
Megas Gyalos: The southern village of the island where you can find a big sandy beach, as well as little pebbly gulfs.
Vari: One of the biggest and oldest villages of the island. A tower just above the sandy beach is composing a medieval atmosphere.
Azolimnos: The closest sandy beach to Hermoupolis is situated in this village. Not really big, but clean and sandy, is surrounded by taverns, bars and coffee shops.
