Astypalea: made for modern ‘Robinson Crusoes’. Astypalea is, indeed, one of the best kept secrets of the Aegen Sea. It is a well-hidden, butterfly-shaped island in the middle of the sea, over an hour away from the neighboring islands Kos and Amorgos.
Gourmands will recognize this place by its delicious local cheese and rakomelo, the firewater mixed with honey. Additionally, windmills, blue domes of churches, idyllic villages, scents of sea and herbs in the air, magnetic healing energy of the area are just some of the regular compliments which can be heard from the visitors of this special place.
