A dot in the Aegean Sea, on the borders of the Prefecture of Dodecanese and Samos, Agathonisi (meaning “kind island”) is a small, unspoilt paradise that takes its name from the kindness of its inhabitants. It is the northernmost of the Dodecanese islands, very near to the island of Samos. The island, with a total surface of 14.4 square km, full of sheltered bays and small rocky islets, is the ideal place for a relaxing and tranquil holiday, for those who love diving in crystal waters and coming into contact with simple, pleasant folk. It combines untouched island nature with the traditional way of life and authentic Greek hospitality. It is a paradise of undisturbed ecological balance, with ancient religious and cultural traditions, the smell of wild herbs and freshly-baked bread and the sound of the lapping waves and flapping seagull wings.
