Best Beaches to Visit on Andros Island

Written by in , Comments Off on Best Beaches to Visit on Andros Island

Andros is one of those islands in Greece that offers a peaceful escape. It is tucked off the beaten path, but it is also the second biggest island in the Cyclades island group, which means that there is plenty of space to spread out. When you visit here, it is easy to see why those who do come here tend to stay for a while. It is a great island for walking, relaxing, and enjoying the sun. You can do all of these things at each of the island’s many beaches. Here’s an overview of the beaches you absolutely need to visit during your stay:

Chrissi Ammos Beach

If you want to spend some time at the most beautiful beach on the island, you won’t want to miss the chance to relax at Chrissi Ammos Beach. It is near Gavrio, the main port town on the island, and also another village named Batsi. In fact, the beach is located right off the island’s major road so it’s a convenient beach from many locations. If you’re staying near the port, you’ll definitely want to spend some time here. The name means, “golden sand” in Greece, and it is a reflection of how gorgeous the beach itself is. This is also an organized beach and there are plenty of sun beds and umbrellas to rent. There are also some facilities on the beach, which will add to your comfort.

Batsi Beach

This is one of the most popular tourist beaches on the island since it is located at the popular beachside resort of Batsi. It is also one of the most organized beaches, which means that there are plenty of facilities here for people to enjoy. Like many of the beaches on the island, it’s also stunningly beautiful. If you’re staying in or near Batsi, you won’t want to miss the chance to soak up the sun at this beach!

Achla Beach

This beach is fairly close from the village of Chora, which means that if you are staying in this area, you’ll definitely want to spend plenty of time here. Like Chrissi Ammos Beach, Achla is gorgeous. However, unlike Chrissi Ammos, Achla Beach is fairly secluded, giving visitors a truly restful experience. However, this peace does come at a slight price. There are no facilities here, which means that people will have to bring their own things. The beach itself is also hard to reach, which means that you will need to stay close by and also have your own transportation if you’re going to spend time here.

Vlychada Beach

Vlychada Beach is also known as being a place that has incredible beauty. It also has soft sand, brilliant blue water, and direct access to the famous Greek sunshine. The landscape here is also pretty dramatic and that also adds to the beauty of the place. There are no facilities here and the only people who really come here are those who are looking for a quiet and solitary beach day.

While visiting the island of Andros, you will want to spend plenty of time at each of these beaches!
