One of the most easily accessible beaches hidden away right in Karavostasis. Walk up the hill near the port and you'll see it behind the cliff. Pebble beach as always, you need your own umbrella and beach towels etc (as always). Restaurants are close enough...More

Clean beach, cristal water, particularly beautiful in the afternoon and evening. Parts of the beach are in shade in late afternoon, which is quite pleasant.

This place is on the Karovostasis side of the island, not far from the port. Water is crystal clear, but the beach itself is small. Easy to reach. Its dimensions make this place very easy to be filled and look extremely crowded.

This is a beautiful beach located in Karavostasis. This is a beautiful beach with crystal clear waters, and is definitely a good option if you cannot get to some of the other remote beaches.

It is sandy, large and very close to the harbour. Only 5 minutes walk, a few stairs and you find yourself in a very nice beach. North wind causes waves you can play with.

We ended up in Vardia beach on our way back from Katergo. We enjoyed snorkeling in the crystal clear waters. Maybe a bit more crowded than what we would have wished, but expected as it is very close to Karavostasis.

While this beach is not the best, for us was an unforgettable experience. Crystal clean water. We were lucky and there was only a little wind the day we went offering us quiet, relaxing time. No shade and drink like almost every beach in folegandros....More

Easily accessible from the port, not crowded, with great clear water. No faccilities, but the port with everything you need is just 5 minutes away. I really liked it.
