Agathonisi is the north most islet of the Dodecanese islands complex. Today the population of the island is about 120 people.
The oldest settlement is Megalo Chorio or "Big Village" with 80 inhabitants. This village has been built in such a way so that it is not visible from the sea, thus protecting it from pirates. Built in the same way and for the same reason is Mikro Chorio-'Small Village' with 20 inhabitants. The third and newest settlement is St. George with 20 inhabitants and is found in the innermost part of the bay from which its name is derived.
The most important sight you can visit is Tholi. They are byzantine structures, used as food storehouses.
Agathonisi is an ideal place for those who wish for quiet holidays away from the hustle and bustle of the main tourist routes.
