andros4 andros gavrio
Administratively it is a province, having three municipalities: Andros, Korthi and Idrousa.
According to 1991 census the population of the island was 8781 inhabitants.
The main port is at Gavrio, with a regular connection to Rafina, while the small ports of Batsi, Hora and Korthi can facilitate fishing and touristic boats.
At the western part of Andros are the big sandy beaches of the island, easily accesible and developed.
Those seeking quiet beaches and rough landscapes should visit the northeastern and southeastern parts.
There are many rivers and torrents and plenty of springs. Ravines have rich vegetation with plane and walnut trees,
while the slopes (especialy at the south) are full of oak trees. Since a long time ago, big parts of the slopes have been transformed, using stone walls, to step-like shapes locally called "emasies". Around the villages there are olive and lemon trees groves and many vineyards.

or the exceptional beaches nearby, like Stivari, Agia Marina and Agios Kyprianos.
