Overview of Kaminakia, Vatses
They are two of the most beautiful beaches on Astypalea, preferably accessible by boat from the port of Pera Gialos. Kaminakia is pebbly, with crystalline blue waters, a few sun beds, umbrellas and a couple of taverns. Vatses is similar but longer, surrounded by rocks and exposable to winds. Near Vatses, you can also visit the well-known cave of Negro, associated with the island’s history and legends about pirates and treasures.
