Agathonisi

The northernmost island in the Dodecanese island group in the southeast Aegean Sea, near the southern coast of Samos. According to the 2011 census, 185 residents live on the island in 3 settlements: Agios Georgios, where the port is, Mikro Chorio northwest of the port, and Megalo Chorio to the east. Megalo Chorio is the main settlement and the site of the school (elementary through high school grades), the municipal offices, the health clinic, and the municipal bakery. The village is not visible from the sea. There are several beaches on the island with crystal clear turquoise water, all accessible by land or sea. There are rooms for rent and 3 main restaurants (tavernas) with good food, including fresh seafood. A fish farm on the island employs a number of its permanent residents. In Kastraki, there are remains of ancient fortifications that date back to the 4th century BC. Agathonisi is also a Natura 2000 protected site that serves as a refuge for rare birds.
