and Perigiali, 9 km from the capital of the island, is the wonderful picturesque
fishing village of Nikiana.
Built at the foot of the Skaros mountain, it is a combination of verdant
green and magical azure, which offers comfort and variety during your holiday
as you can find whatever you want here.
Nikiana is an ideal place for windsurfing, skiing and fishing as well
as for climbing, with the ability to offer every visitor whatever they may desire.
A little further on is the hermitage
of Agioi Pateres (the Holy Fathers) with a panoramic view and also the important
mountain settlements of Alexandros
and Kolyvata which are worth
a visit as is the Skaros mountain where you will find the unique oak wood.
