Close to the town of Andros, to the north, is located an organized sandy beach, ideal for families, with taverns, cafes and shops. The bay here used to be the old port of the island and it still serves as a harbour for fishermen boats and yachts. Niborio is partly organized with few sunbeds and umbrellas while the small taverns nearby maintain a discrete but really helpful presence with local delicacies and fresh fish.
Paraporti is the south coast of the two beaches, on the sides of the peninsula of Hora. It has a nice and big sandy beach and beautiful surroundings, with a charming river with ducks, the Venetian Castle on the left and the Tourlitis lighthouse a little further away.
