Andros is the northernmost Cycladic island and second in area after Naxos. Andros has an area of 374 sq. km and an elongated shape. Whole island is mountainous, with a central range reaching its highest at Petalo and Kouvara. The main port is at Gavrio, with a regular connection to Rafina, while the ports of Batsi, Hora and Korthi can facilitate fishing and touristic boats. At the western part of Andros are the big sandy beaches of the island, easily accesible and developed. Those seeking quiet beaches and rough landscapes should visit the northeastern and southeastern parts. There are many rivers and torrents and plenty of springs. Ravines have rich vegetation with plane and walnut trees, while the slopes (especialy at the south) are full of oak trees. Since a long time ago, big parts of the slopes have been transformed, using stone walls, to step-like shapes locally called “emasies”. Around the villages there are olive and lemon trees groves and many vineyards. Andros owes its ancient names “Idrousa”, “Lasia”, “Nonagria” and “Epagris” to water and its rich vegetation. The northwestern part of the island is bushy and somebody can see partidges, hawks or even rarer predatory birds, like eagles, wild pigeons and martins.
