Astipalaia is located at the point where the Dodecanese meet the Cyclades. Visit Hóra, the island’s capital and port, one of the most picturesque settlements of the Aegean. At the hilltop of the Hora stands the castle, surrounded by small whitewashed houses with blue doors.
Two of the most beautiful beaches that can be reached by boats are Kaminakia and Vatses where there is a cave with stalactites and stalagmites. The sandy beach of Ag. Konstantinos and the Papou Beach are also good choices for swimming.
