Batsi used to be a fishing village. It has now become the touristic place of Andros and is therefore the major resort of the island. Despite its touristic character, Batsi has kept a traditional and picturesque charm.
Batsi is an old, traditional fishing village, which in recent years has been transformed into a tourist resort. It is just 7 km from Gavrio, the main port of Andros, and is really worth a visit.
This attractive town has traditional whitewashed red roofed houses which have been built amphi -theatrically, and encircles a bay with a lovely fishing harbour at its south end and a nice sandy beach at the other side. The town is cosmopolitan but maintaining the local colors, and a main destination for the visitors.
It therefore has all the expected and necessary comforts for nice holidays: taverns, ouzo shops, night-time entertainment, tourist agencies, hotels, room for rent, post office, bank, car and motorbike hiring agencies and many shops.
