In Folegandros the distances are short and you can cover them by foot. Nevertheless small boats give access to the beaches and there is also local bus transportation that services the port. Ano Meria is only 5 kilometers from Chora. After Agia Paraskevi in approximately 15 - 20 minutes you reach the bay of Vathi with Agali beach. Here you will find taverns and rental rooms. Climbing from Agali one reaches Ano Meria were the Folklore Museum is located and it included a house, a stable with all the tools that were used by the people for their well being. From Ano Meria you come down to Livadaki, Ambeli, Agios Georgios and
is the only port of the island. During the summer
there is continuous motion. During the winter
it only has people when a boat comes in. The trip
from Piraeus lasts approximately 9 hours. Right
next to the wharf , next to the water you will
see the small church of Agios Georgios.
For someone to take the round trip of the island
by small boat, he must start from Karavostatis.
You start towards the south and reach Katergo,
the most beautiful beach of the island with very
fine pebbles. Here the waters are crystal clear
and deep blue. Continuing to the east you meet
the beaches of Galifos and Agios Nikolaos. You
can make a stop at Aspropounta.
This beach can only be reached by sea. Further
east you meet Livadaki and on the northwest Ambeli,
Varsamo, and Dendro. Towards the north you come
across Agios Georgios, the most northern beach
of the island, which is accessible to the northeasterly
winds. Continuing with your round you meet Serfiotiko
and Chrisospilia which consists of a surprise,
as someone can only see it if the weather and
the Archeological office allows it. With the round
of the island the excursion to Folegandros finishes.
