You wont need shopping therapy on the isle of Iraklia. The natural surroundings and seascape does its share to calm and detox …
Still, it’s always nice to buy a “little something” from a place you’ve visited either for yourself or for a loved one.
On Iraklia, gift shops in Agios Georgios might have an item or two that might inspire. And if not, the local mini market or supermarket, is always a great resource to pick up a sweet or savory item.
Bratsera features handmade jewellery and other small souvenirs as well as a few ladies’ clothes; while Agerino features a tasteful selection of handmade items such as jewelery, wood-carvings, ceramics and Cycladic figurines.
Foodies might want to check out the island’s mini market, To Steki, in Panagia and/or supermarket, Perigiali or Melissa mini-market in Agios Georgios for the local thyme honey, variety of spoon sweet preserves and marmalades made from various local fruits as well as specialty liqueurs such as rakomelo and frangosyko (prickly pear).
