See our greece hotels for a complete look at accommodations available on this island.
This rocky isle was traditionally a place of exile. The Aegean's various rulers mostly passed it by as of little interest, although there were plenty of pirates attacking the island. Frequent pillaging explains why the houses in the Hora have their backs to the sea and are built around protected courtyards in twisting streets.
Since Folegandros is a small place, reservations should be made well in advance for the high season. It is very popular with the Italians and Danes.
It's a great island for walkers–lots of wild beauty and unspoiled beaches. Hikers will enjoy its rugged terrain but should wear boots to avoid thorns. See more pictures of Folegandros. | Folegandros Photos II
