The island is famous for its narrow beach front houses set over the calm glistening sea. The name Kastellorizo cames from the Italian 'Kastello Rosso' or red castle. The red castle is one of the island's most famous sights. The name was given to it by the Knights of Saint John due the red stone used in the castle's construction.
There are no beaches on Kastelorizo Island as such, only rocky inlets perfect for diving and snorkeling. There are however, plenty of wonderful beaches on some of the small islets nearby. You can go on excursions by hiring boats available from the harbour.
Some of the impressive sites in and around the island are the stunning Blue Caves, well preserved stone-hewed Lycean tomb and various small but interesting archaeological museums depicting local culture.
Kastelorizo on the whole offers an unforgettable Greek Island holiday experience with some good places to stay and eat along with the splendid views.
Surrounded in Greek mythology, Paloi and the island of Nisyros itself are perfect places for ancient history enthusiasts. Paloi was said to be built on the ruins of an ancient city linked to therapeutic Roman baths that were there thousands of years ago. It is also legend that the island was created after Poseidon, the Greek god of the sea, impaled a Titan, Polyvotis, with his trident and, where the force was so strong, apparently split the island of Kos into two; Kos and Nisyros.
The island itself is idyllic, peaceful and very laidback, with superb beaches that are perfect for snorkelling and windsurfing, two very popular sports in the Cycladean region. In the capital, Mandraki, you can enjoy the friendly night-time atmosphere that attracts so many people to the island every year. An attraction is the only active volcano in the Greek islands - the crater of which you can walk into and view the steaming vents close up!
