"Gavrio, not more than a passage!" Gavrion by JLBG

Gavrion Travel Guide: 9 reviews and 13 photos

When you visit the island of Andros, you cannot avoid Gavrio as it will be your landing place. Because of prevailing northerly winds, the Chora, on the eastern shore, has no real harbor. Gavrio is a good shelter and became the landing spot for all ferries. It is a small town with every facility but with no real interest. Most visitors do not stay in Gavrio.

    We recently did the Piraeus/Paros/Naxos/Santorini trip by ferry, and yes, I too was amazed at the speed with which the ferries pull away from the landing dock!

    Oh my, your photo "quiet life" is so classically Greece that I wish I could sit on a bench there right now, with a retsina and look at the water and the fishermen boats :-)

    Amazing fairy chimney top in Andros, haha! Time is money in calm and quiet island? May be only on ferries, haha! Thanks Jean-Louis for your great virtual tour on Greece.

    Great description. I can imagine disembarking the ferry and wandering through the small village of this picturesque Greek isle.
