Astypalea travel, tourism info

Astypalea belongs to the Dodecanese island group, near Kos, Amorgos and Anafi, and has around 1,300 permanent residents. Geographically and culturally it stands between the Dodecanese and the Cyclades. Its unusual shape is the first thing that impresses visitors, a small tract of land of 10 km and 100 m wide, called Steno, separates the island into two sections, the inner and outer island. Chora, the capital and harbour, is built on a rock extending into the sea from one of the two capes; the other cape is called Livadi. Chora is linked to the harbour of Pera Gialos and thought by many to be one of the most beautiful capitals on any island in the Aegean.
