greek island / Cyclades /Andros/ Andros island/ vacations/andros greece

The name of Andros is referred for the first time in the tragedy of Aischilos -’’Persie’’ (5th Century BC). However, the name predates this and according to mythical tradition, the island owes its name to “Andron” or “Andrea”, a hero with godly descent. Other names (nicknames) from ancient times include: Gavros, Lasia, Nonagria, Hydrousa, and Epagris, all of which made a statement about the island’s rich nature, which has been maintained till this day and gives the island its special characteristics and makes it unique among the other Cycladic islands.

Andros is the second largest of the cycladic islands. It’s divided from the west to the east by four rivers running through verdant, fertile valleys, home to the farming communities of the island: the Arni river, which flows into the bay of Levka: the Achla river which flows into the bay of Achla: the Big river which flows into one of Hora’s bays - Paraporti: and the Dipotamata river which flows into the bay of Sineti.
