WELCOME TO ASTYPALEA!
Astypalea is arguably one of the most beautiful islands of the Dodecanese! This small, butterfly-like shaped island is yet to be discovered by mass tourism, thus it boasts a peaceful atmosphere.
Even though Astypalea Greece belongs to the Dodecanese island group, it has a Cycladic architecture. The Venetian Castle on the top of a hill in Chora, traditional windmills and whitewashed houses create a magical setting that never fails to seduce visitors!
Astypalea beaches are mostly unorganized and secluded, offering the perfect setting for those who seek privacy and want to unwind away from the hustle and the bustle. But there’s a lot more to do here than lay on the beach!

MORE ABOUT ASTYPALEA GREECE
Astypalea Greece is a little island of the Dodecanese island group in the southeastern Aegean Sea. Thanks to its secluded location, it has managed to stay off the radar and has emerged as a great alternative destination.
Although it belongs to the Dodecanese island group, Astypalea has the characteristic Cycladic architecture. Cubic whitewashed houses and churches, narrow alleys, blue windows, and wooden balconies create a unique Cyclades-like atmosphere that will blow you away!

Chora, the island’s capital is built on the slopes on a hill, boasting a breathtaking view to the Aegean Sea. On the top of the hill overlooking the village, sits Querini castle, a vestige of the
Venetian era. This castle used to protect the island during medieval times, but now it is the main attraction of Astypalea.
As for Astypalea beaches, those that are close to Chora are organized with sunbeds and umbrellas, while along the beach you’ll find many taverns and Astypalea accommodation.
