Kasos is located in the southernmost region of the Eastern Aegean and lies between Crete and Karpathos. The land is mountainous and rocky with few areas suitable for agriculture. Clusters of barren islets and rocky peaks are found all around the island.
Kasos has an ancient history as it has been a part of the historical fortunes of its neighbors, Crete and Karpathos, and has often been subject to pirate invasions. The old aristocratic captain’s houses are quite impressive, while the village houses are whitewashed with narrow flagstone paved lanes.
There are churches and chapels with pebbled flooring and beautiful wood carved iconostasis within the settlements. To the south there is the Helatros bay, whose sea is ideal with sparkling clean waters. The beaches of Fri, Aghios Konstantinos, Armathia and Helatro will be appreciated by all sea lovers.
