Gavrio is the main the port of Andros. It is located on the northwest side of the island and has contributed to its rapid development both in the commercial and tourist sectors.
Gavrio is the main port of Andros and is located on its west coast, and is the only point that connects the island with Rafina. It is 32 km away from Chora and 45 km away from Korthi. Until the 90s it was a traditional fishing village, but then it slowly started to develop its tourist side. However, its first significant development came at the end of the 1960s. In that year it started to be the main port of Andros, due to its location.
Restaurants, tavernas, bars, hotels and many shops welcome visistors as soon as they arrives on the island. The main settlement of Gavrio has kept its picturesqueness, especially when the traffic in the port calms down.
Gavrio is also the starting point for excursions to the north of the island in search of beaches and villages. To the south of Gavrio, there are some golden sandy beaches as well as the imposing tower of Agios Petros. Near the area is also the Monastery of Zoodochos Pigi and many beautiful sandy beaches, such as Fellos, Agios Petros, Chryssi Akti, Agios Kyprianos and Kypri.
