Folegandros
As my pictures show, Folegandros is one of the prettiest of the Cyclades Islands.
It is still relatively unspoilt, rugged, and with a rocky coastline, but the two main towns, Karavostasis,
 the port, and the inland hidden Chora, are delightful places. Karavostasis is a great spot for boat watching,
 with yachts, fishing caiques and ferries continually arriving and departing. The Chora hides in the precinct
of a medieval castle and has whitewashed houses, picturesque tavernas and amazing views.
The barren,
 rocky interior of the island is beautiful in its own way. Chora perches on top of a huge cliff, and awesome
terraced fields swoop down to the water’s edge. Folegandros is one of my favourite places in Greece.
