  Agistri's capital was used in ancient times as a base of naval operations and as point of rearmament.
   Crystal-clear blue waters in natural coves create sandy areas for swimming. Scenic tiled lanes, traditional cafes (kafeneia), decrepit figures dressed in the local-style attire, and the windmill, all contribute to the lively history of the island.
   Stone-built houses, fresh-painted white walls, clay-tiled roofs, outdoor house oves, orderly clean yards meet the modern-built hotel units. Cafe-Bars, Ouzo-snack-cafes, Restaurants and Night Clubs are ready to serve any one of you that will visit our island.
  Further away and on top of a hill deep in the pine-tree forest is the little church of "Agion Panton" (All Saints), it stands there through the passing of time and calls the visitor to gain the knowledge of the island's roots, and that's how he discover "Kandouki", the old village, that is, whatever remains from some much older settlement.
  Leaving Megalochori heading west you find yourself in a magical place that combines in absolute harmony the green of the pine-tree and the deep blue of the sea.
  The trees that, with the passing of time, bend curving into the sea and almost embrace the waters and the boats at the old shipyard bear witness for the hundreds of years that they are there.
  The recently asphalt paved road leads us further west of the island at a place that the signs say that is called 'Dragonera'. Besides the single little restaurant there everything else has remained untouched.
   Crystal clear waters, natural beaches, pine trees that reach the shores, quietness and stillness are just part of the riches that nature offers with generosity there. And the road continues south uphill, then downhill, and we reach a glade, an oasis full of history for the old-timers but a magical place for the visitor. It is 'Polemi' with the old church of St. Barbara with the fortune to be consecrated by St. Nektarios.

Skala, with its long beaches, is a village clearly touristic, that provides for a comfortable and hospitable visit at its first-rate hotels, rooms and studios, while delectable traditional snacks and foods for all tastes will please and satisfy the most demanding visitor. Music variety for all the hours at Clubs and Cafe-bars make complete the island's touristic structure. On the left side of Skala is Skliri, a new-built touristic area with modern hotels and restaurants. Further to the left of Agistri and after a dreamlike path through the pine trees, a natural pebbled cove with crystal clear water is expecting you, the magical Chalikiada.

By following the road west of Limenaria we reach an exotic location where the pine-trees embrace the most beautiful beach. Aponissos with its unique combination of colors offers a great opportunity for relaxation. The small taverna that it's there offers delicious seafood next to the sea waves.

After Polemi going downhill Limenaria is revealed. Tall cypress trees, olive trees, watermelon fields, stone-built houses, the old school, the large church of St. Kiriaki and the picturesque small port of Mariza are just a small illustration of enchanting beauty and captivating charm that this place has to present. At the scenic taverna of the village you can enjoy delightful greek cuisine as well as the traditional dish of braised rooster.

Between Megalochori (Milos) and Skala, on top of a slope, is the coolest place of the island that predominantly oversees the happenings. It is Metochi.
The view is really worth the walk up to the Virgin Mary's little church is a walk that will compensate the effort of anyone that will try it!...
And the family-owned taverna "Parnassos", surrounded by pine trees, is for those that wish to try the genuinely 'Agistrian' snacks and foods.

Going left from Skala's pier the road leads to Skliri (it becomes a pathway through houses and hotels). The waters there are clear but the beach is somewhat rocky and steep. One must be careful when she/he gets in the water and the sea urchins. The path through the pine trees, (after the end of the road), leads at the edge of a rock from which one can go down (with care) to the sea and reach the pebbled Chalikiada beach.
