Andros island is renowned for its wonderful mountainous landscape and short proximity to Athens. It is also famous for its stunning coastline with many secluded beaches of exotic beauty. Ideal for relaxing days under the greek sun, most secluded beaches in Andros are located on the northern side of the island and offer total privacy and serenity.
These secluded beaches in Andros may be difficult to reach, due to old track roads and inaccessible pathways, so it is recommended to travel there by motorbike or boat. Our lovely accommodation, located in Agios Petros area, is actually close to some private beaches, perfect for swimming and snorkeling.
Here are our suggestions for best secluded beaches in Andros, distinguished for their crystalline waters and beautiful scenery.

This spectacular sandy beach, situated about 7km from the Andros port Gavrio, is mostly famous for its great sunset views. Piso Limnionas offers absolutely no facilities and shade, but its transparent crystal waters and amazing location are ideal for tranquillity and isolation.
Among the top secluded beaches in Andros is also Vitali, a quiet and private cove with shiny pebbles at the north eastern side of the island. Though it is not easily accessed, due to the narrow dirt track, its rocky landscape and crystalline waters should not be missed.
