Slightly less lush than some of the surrounding harbours, Kastos has an undiscovered feel.

There’s excellent homemade ice cream on the seafront, a sandy beach and a choice of a handful of restaurants but the place  gives the impression it’s missed out in the battle for the tourist purse, which is no bad thing. In truth, it’s more that Kastos Island, at just 5 miles long and much less than a mile wide, simply isn’t that big.

The population, numbered in the tens in winter does grow a fair bit in summer, and it  must be rare in having a seasonal bakery that opens only in summer.  Don’t expect any other provision though, or banks or ATM’s.
