Donoussa island, Small Cyclades
Donoussa, located in the island complex of Small Cyclades, is the easternmost island of Cyclades.
Stavros (Campos) is the largest village on the island and Troulos, Messaria, Charavgi, Mersini and Kalotaritissa are the other villages on the island. The waters surrounding the island are very clean with many beautiful and quiet sandy beaches, including the beach of Stavros, Kerdos and Kalotaritissa. If you want quiet and relaxing holiday, away from crowded and noisy resorts, Donoussa is the ideal destination.
If you are in Donoussa, visit the spring at Mersini that sparkles beneath a plane tree near the church of St. Sophia.
At the bottom of the sea, at Kedros Beach, you will be able to view the wreck of a German ship, a remnant of the Second World War.
It is a good idea to take the boat to visit the Cave of Wall (Aspros Kavos) and Fokospilia (Moschonas Kavos).
If you are lucky and you are in Donoussa in August 15th or September 17th, the celebration of St. Sophia, you will traditionally celebrate along with the inhabitants.
