The architecture and landscape of Andros are very different to that of the rest of the Cyclades with green hillsides covered in stone terracing, crystal clear streams and natural springs, unusual dove cots with square towers whose pigeon holes are decorated with geometric designs, rustic stone villages and handsome stone houses.
The main town of the island, known as Hora (Chora), is particularly attractive with an impressive marble promenade where there are some very elegant restaurants, cafes, bars and boutique shops but without the price tag of comparable islands such as Mykonos or Santorini. The coastline has many lovely, sandy beaches and the island offers watersports and sailing.
