The island has been inhabited since 2500 BC. Historically nothing much happened on the island. Later it became a great maritime island along with Hydra. One of the islands greatest heroes is Bouboulina, a local woman who became a sea captain and fought in the battle of independence with great courage. Relax during the day or evening in one of the tavernas around the harbour. The museum is worth a visit as is the house to Bouboulina. The houses to the old sea captains have been restored. Visit the church of Agios Nikolos . The beaches at Vrellos and Zogeria are good. As on Hydra driving is forbidden, so small boats will take you to the beaches, good beaches are to be found around the island.
