My Donoussa: Hike its Trails and Feel its Soul

Elias Prasinos, lives and works on Donoussa, after moving to the island from Athens. He shared with us five of his favorite things about the island.

My five favorite things about Donoussa:

# 1 The Beaches at Kalotaritissa

”The three beaches Kalotaritissa. One next to another. Calm, clear waters. And the small picturesque village of Kalotaritissa ready to be explored.”

# 2 The Local Homemade Goat Cheese 

” … is a favorite product of mine.  Ask for it at the local tavernaa. Search the taverna. Made the old fashioned way by using the milk free-grazing goats. It doesn’t get more delicious and organic than this.”

# 3 Hiking the marked trails of Donousa

“This favorite activity is the only way to feel the soul of Donoussa. Pristine beaches, traditional architectural structures, spectacularly unique vistas, Cycladic nature, light. Be sure to pick up the special hiking map/brochure.”

# 4 The two traditional festivals (panygyria) in September

“These two special festival have special memories: The celebration on The Holy Cross Day on September 13th with traditional island music and dancing at the port and St. Sophia on September 17th at the fountain, under the vast plantain tree at the village of Merssini.”

# 5 The Fountain at Merssini

“This favorite natural attraction is an oasis in the heat of summer: the breathtaking scenery, the running of crystal clear water and the beautiful traditional small village of Merssini directly overhead…”
