Batsi is a small seaside village, on the west coast of Andros, where we are staying in the lovely Kantouni Pensione while we are working on the Zagora Archaeological Project. There is a map which shows the location of Batsi on Andros in my Intro to Andros post.
Andros is generally less ‘touristy’ than other Greek islands. Those tourists who come tend to be Greek rather than international tourists. And now (November) that the weather is getting cooler, there seem to be few tourists of any kind around. The winter population of Batsi is 600-700 people – but this swells to some 3000 during summer. So our experience here feels authentically Greek.
Here are some views of Batsi Beach shot along the waterfront.
