Here’s a well-hidden jewel in the Dodecanese that opens its riches to visitors. Beyond the breath-taking vistas of the harbour, you’ll be charmed by the winding alleys and pastel-coloured homes of the island’s main town, Pothia. The island is known for its sponge diving, but also as one of the best rock-climbing destinations in Greece with over 80 routes. If you prefer relaxed discovery, you’ll be impressed by the architecture and neoclassical mansions, two castles (Castle of 9 Churches and Castle of Christoherias), traditional windmills, and good eateries. There are many beaches to enjoy, as well as thermal springs in the area known as Therma. A handful of small museums (archaeological, nautical, historical, folklore) will also keep you intrigued.
