Batsi is just 2 3/4 nM south-east of Gavrio and provides good shelter, although it can be gusty, from the meltemi (the Etesians) (the Etesians) but it is exposed to the south. You can either anchor off-shore or go stern-to at the small quay. The bottom is sand and provides good holding.
This is a pleasant and quiet anchorage (if you are off-shore) and yet there are enough stores and restaurants ashore. There is fuel available from a station but it is uphill and out of town, not an easy walk carrying jerry cans.
On the north western side of Andros, about 35 km from Chora and 4 km from Gavrio, there is Fellos, an easy to access beach with crystal water and soft sand on the shore. This small bay is sometimes affected by summer winds, the so-called meltemia, but it is generally goods for swimming.
Located on the north western side of Andros, in the region of Gavrio, Pyrgos can be reached through a track road. Actually it can be reached through the same track road that leads to Vlyhada and Pisolimionas, two other secluded beaches in the area.
After arriving at the settlement of Paleopolis located on the west coast of the island, you follow the path with the steps descending the hillside to this pebbly beach. The entire area is full of scattered antiquities, such as a great part of the ancient port and the ancient market (agora).
Located on the north western side of Andros, about 40 km from Chora and 10 km from Gavrio, Vlychada is considered among the most beautiful beaches of the island. With soft sand on the shore and crystal blue water, Vlychada stands out for its natural beauty and the abrupt landscape.
Located between the beaches of Agios Sostis and Vlychada, Kaminaki is a small cove that gets frequently affected by northern summer winds, the so-called meltemia that blow so often over Andros in the summer. This sandy cove receives very few visitors, mostly due to its remote location and the track road that leads there.
