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.

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.
