Folegandros Gulet Charter Guide Folegandros Gulet Charter Guide

The island of Folegandros will offer the visitor a deeply relaxing holiday in a classic Cycladic landscape that has remained unspoilt by fast tourism growth. Wandering about the streets paved with cobblestone in Chora (the main town) and the castle’s narrow alleys; climbing on the rock of Panagia where you will feast your eyes on a panoramic view of the Aegean Sea; swimming at secluded beaches or at more popular ones; all the above are aspects composing one of the most beautiful settings in Cyclades.

The island’s area is 32 sq. km, its coastline is 31.5 km and there are 670 inhabitants. It is located in the southwestern Cyclades, between Sikinos and Milos. According to mythology, the leader of the first settlers on the island (coming from the island of Crete) was called Folegandros and was the son of the Cretan King Minos.

Built inside as well as outside around the castle, Chora stands 150 m. above sea level. The castle is perched on a crag and the view from some parts of it is breathtaking. In the town centre there are many churches, beautiful squares with traditional cafés and tavernas, stone paved alleys – such as the one that links Pounta square with the church of Panagia – Koimisi tis Theotokou (Dormition of the Mother of God)- and whitewashed houses with the classic small yards.
