Astypalea is full of whitewashed houses, amazing beaches and fruit orchards bursting with tangerines, olives and grapes. Like many Greek islands, Astypalea is full of breathtaking views of the ocean and the unique landscape that surrounds the main villages of Chora and Livadi. 'The Portaitissa' is a must-see when going to this island, an immaculate monastery with whitewashed walls and turquoise domed roofs.
Also try some Astypalean specialities whilst there including poungia, a cheese pie made with locally-made kopanisti cheese and sweet Greek honey, and the freshly-caught seafood such as lobster and octopus. For archaeology fans, a visit to the Archaeological Museum of Astypalea is a must, as well as the Venetian ruins that are scattered around Astypalea.
