A brief description of Agistri
Agistri has two neighboring villages Scala and Megalohori, where you can eat fresh fish and drink a relaxing cocktail. The beaches of the island are quite nice and comparable to the beaches of the Cycladic islands. The most visited are Halkiada and Dragonera. Reaching Halkiada is a bit difficult as you need to go down a steep trail. However, the effort is well deserved as the crystal clear sea will give you an immediate relief.
