Where to stay: Plenty of hotels, cheap and expensive. After searching more than 30 hotels the only one that it was value for money 130Euro was, good location and nice view from all rooms

Where to swim: Ag. Prokopios, Ag. Anna, Plaka (all these are huge well organised beaches with restaurants and beach bars - KALUA is the most famous in Ag. Prokopios). Mikri Vigla nice one for surfers. Aliko remote one, non organised. Panormos at the east side of the island probably the best beach of the island.

Where to eat: Not at the touristic restaurants at the harbour. Go to Apeiranthos at Lefteris (ask for potato salad and stuffed bifteki!!!!!). Go to Eggares at Stella's. And in Chora try Typografeio

MUST of the island: Sunset at Portara, Dinner at Apeiranthos village

Drinks: In old town close to harbour a couple of mainstream bars, a jazz bar and a kind of rock live bar.

Where to stay: It has only few rooms to let and no hotels. Firoa Studios are the most decent ones: In 5 years there will be many hotels to accommodate you. If you are camper you can camp everywhere on the island....

Where to swim: Everywhere, even at the harbour beach. Kedros beach is full of campers with the perfect beach bar-restaurant. Very cosy place and relaxing. Livadi beach is two beaches next to Kedros you need to walk 20-30 minutes down the cliff. It is for campers too and swimming suit is not necessary. No bar there so get water with you. Kalotaritissa at the north of the island, nice beach with a small taverna Mitsos to eat fava and mpifteki (specialties of the house)

Where to eat: Mitsos (Kalotaritissa), Tzi-tzi (Mirsini) - top taverna at the island, and couple of others at the harbour.

Any drinks?: Skatzohoiros is the place for coffee in the morning and drinks in the evening. There is also another one on the harbour beach.
