Donoussa is one of the small islands in the Cyclades, with an area of just over 13 square kilometers. Its small size, combined with its unique natural beauty and exquisite beaches, have made Donoussa a favorite holiday destination for all those who want tranquility and direct contact with nature.
Arriving in Donousa, the first to see is Stavros, the main settlement and port of the island. Here you will find most of the island’s shops, the Medical Center as well as the Panagitsa Church with great views. There are many surprises waiting for you to start your tour of the island. Initially you will come across the settlement of Messaria or Haravgi which once lived but today is almost uninhabited.
It’s worth wandering the streets and imagining it as it used to be. Continuing to wander, Mersin has a turn. A picturesque settlement that is amazed by its abundance of green Cyclades and is due to the existence of unique freshwater springs throughout the island.
Here you can admire the spectacular plane tree and enjoy local delicacies at the local taverns. The last stop on the Donoussa stroll is Kalotaritissa, relatively isolated in the north of the island, with the chapel of St. George.
In Donoussa you will not find clubs and large hotel complexes. Instead you will find smiling people, spotlessly rented rooms, picturesque taverns and bars for relaxed drinking, fantastic beaches, many campers and … good company. If all this is what you are looking for on your vacation do not delay, arrange for Donoussa now!
