The island of Andros is located in the northern part of the island’s Cycladic complex. It is located 37 nautical miles from Attica and the port of Rafina. Geologically it appears on the northern edge as a natural continuation of Evia with which, a long time ago, it was united in one piece of land (narrow Kavo Doro). At the southern end, there is the Andros – Tinos passage in which the distance that separates the two islands is less than a mile.
