The Greek island of Kasos is one of the Dodecanese group of islands and lies in the south east Aegean Sea. The island is located to the south west of the island of Karpathos, between Karpathos and Crete. The small island, which measures around 50 sq. km, only has about 1,000 inhabitants and is quite mountainous with the highest peak standing at 550m above sea level. Worth exploring are the island's 5 villages which are: Fry, Agia Marina, Panagia, Poli and Arvanitochori. The island's port can be found in the village of Fry. The island has managed to retain its natural identity mainly because of the lack of large scale tourism. Visitors to the island will love the quality of its fish, locally produced cheeses and its friendly hospitality.
There are around 100 churches on the island which bears testament to the island's deep religious beliefs. Worth visiting is the church of Agios Spiridonas, the complex of six churches in Panagia village and the church of Agios Georgios, which is now regarded as the protector of the island.
The island can be reached by ferry via Piraeus, Crete (Siteia, Agios Nikolaos), Rhodes, Halki and Karpathos.
Sitia is located on the Greek island of Crete and is one of the island's least visited locations. Built during Venetian times, the town was later destroyed and then rebuilt by the Turks although unfortunately little remains from this period. However, there are some indications dotted around of the town and region's past which may be of interest to visitors. A popular reason to visit the town is to enjoy its long sandy beach where the swimming is good and various water sport opportunities exist. Also popular in the area are its monasteries, including Toplou, its archaeological sites, its palm forested beaches and its mountains which are wonderful to trek through.
Crete is the largest and most populous of Greek islands and the fifth largest in the Mediterranean sea, and is also one of 13 administrative regions of Greece. Crete's largest city is Heraklion and although the island has managed to retain some of its own cultural identity it still contributes significantly to the economy and cultural legacy of Greece.
The port at Sitia connects Sitia and eastern Crete with several other Greek islands as well as with the port of Piraeus on the Greek mainland. The town also has a marina which accommodates smaller fishing boats and yachts.
