Donousa Gulet Charter Guide Donousa Gulet Charter Guide

This is the northernmost island of the Small Eastern Cyclades group of islands. It is located east of Naxos and north of Amorgos. The island’s area is 13.5 sq. km and there are many bays with gorgeous sandy beaches nestled among them. This is the place to be if you’re looking for a quiet holiday.

According to mythology, Dionysus hid Ariadne in Donousa, so that Theseus would not find her. A settlement dating to the geometric period as well as remains of Bronze Age dwellings have been excavated on the island. There are 140 inhabitants in four beautiful villages: Donousa or Stavros (the biggest village being also the island’s port), Mersini, Charavgi (or Mesaria) and Kalotaritissa.
