Syneti Beach

Syneti beach is a favourite destination for locals and visitors alike. It is located on the eastern coastline of Andros about 7 km from the capital Chora and just below the homonymous village. The village of Syneti is located on the border of the municipal districts of Chora and Korthio.

Driving from Chora south to Korthi you reach about four kilometers later to the village of Syneti where you turn left at the relevant intersection. Then descending to the shore you will find yourself in front of the exceptionally beautiful natural bay of Syneti. The route to the sea takes a few minutes while the paved road greatly facilitates the passage to the coast.

Syneti Beach has off-white quartz pebbles and natural shade in the afternoon due to the mountains that rise above it. Near the coast and along the rocky ends of Mount Kourvoulos you will find underwater caves, places that are loved by snorkelers. Another striking feature is the freshwater gushing from a vein in the rocks to your right. Besides, the rocky morphology of the spot creates many natural poles for those who love diving.

Dipotamata and “Little England” at Syneti Beach

The natural beauty of the beach with the stalactites, the caves with their unique coolness but also the deep blue waters stood out more through the shooting of the film production “Little England” that took place at the spot. Besides, the uniqueness of the geological formations of the area with the volume of the mountain falling sharply into the sea and the smells of oregano mixed with the saltiness that emerges from the bay make Syneti Beach especially attractive not only to locals but also to those who discover it for the first time.

As the narrow natural cove looks to the north the beach is exposed to the meltemia. But even when the north wind is enhanced, the landscape acquires a sophisticated wild beauty that is worth experiencing. The wider area due to its exceptional natural beauty is suitable for hiking. Syneti Beach is a natural end of the famous Dipotamata valley with its famous gorge of the same name and the traditional watermills, an attraction that should not be missed while visiting the island.
