Astypalea Vathi Beach
Vathi Beach Astypalea: Vathi is among the most isolated beaches of Astypalea. It is located 21 km northeast of Chora, the island's capital. The bay, which is virtually closed except for a small opening about 50 meters across, bears a strong resemblance to a lagoon.
The beach is pebbled and has shallow water. Close to it, there are some rooms to let and a few taverns serving fresh fish. Regular boat trips are available from Vathi to nearby sights, such as the Cave of the Dragon with an impressive formation of stalactites and stalagmites, carefully sculpted by nature over hundreds of years.
