Kassos is located in the southern part of the Dodecanese, between Karpathos and Crete. The rocky scenery that comes in direct contrast to the amazing beaches of the island is something you do not want to miss out on. The port is located in the northern part of the capital which is called Fry and was built in 1840. 

There are a few things you should consider doing if you are visiting the island. Visit the monastery of Saint George’s built-in 1690 at Chadies. Go to the village Poli, the first capital of the island where you can find remains of the ancient acropolis and craved tombs from the 4th century B.C. Also stop by the sacred cave of Ellinokamara, an important place of worship since ancient times and a natural recourse from the pirates.

See the sunset from the so-called Six Churches, a magical church complex from the 18th century at the village of Panagia. According to the myth the churches were built to cast away the spirits of six fairies living there.

The beaches of the island are something you will always remember for their beauty. Below is our list of the locations you should try and visit.

  • Ammua
  • Antiperatos
  • Chelatros
  • Emporio
  • Aulaki

Since you have a yacht available – lucky you- take advantage of it and visit the uninhabited island of Armathia. A secret paradise in the northern parts of the island. With one of the most beautiful beaches, you will ever visit Marmara, known for its turquoise waters and fine white sand. We have to let you know that there are fourteen smaller islands surrounding Kassos all included in the network of Natura 2000 that will reward you for your time and efforts with their crystal blue waters, virgin beaches, and beauty like you have never seen before.

Have you gotten hungry? What better way to soothe the feeling than the local food? Ask for the famous local dulmas, pilaf with cinnamon, fakoryzo (a dish with rice and lentils), and the hand-made pasta makarounes. We have not forgotten about the fresh fish vastly available on the island and neither should you. Try skaros and menoules and any other recipe that includes seafood. If it is time for something sweet then go for kreotigana, ksilikopitas moschopougia, and kouloures.
