Andros island in Greece
Andros is the most northern of the Cyclades islands in Greece, close to Evia and north of Tinos. It's known as a cultural destination with art galleries and museums, but also has beaches, history, local wines and friendly people.
Andros has slightly different characteristics than other islands in the Cyclades, which adds to its charm. I loved Andros so much, I helped co-write a travel guide book about the island! You can find it on Amazon here: Andros and Tinos in Greece.
