A small, majestic island, the unique inhabited in Macedonia, right across from Mount Athos. Around a complex of smaller islands, Drenia, ideal for swimming and diving. Surrounded by the sea breeze and the sense of hospitality offered by the locals, offers many accommodation and entertainment options.
The walks around the island reveal the traditional houses, the courtyards with the fishermen's’ nets, small gardens with vegetables, the blooming gardens. All tidy and clean. The locals are involved with fishing, even having the largest fleet in Macedonia, with tourism and the olives’ cultivation.
The first inhabitants arrived on the island in 1925, as refugees from Asia Minor, and more specifically from Propontis islands (Gallimi, Pasalimani, Skoupia). They brought with them their precious customs, a valuable gastronomy, the art of fishing, and rare objects exhibited now in the island’s Folklore Museum.
