Ferry to Ammouliani
In early 1925, the tiny island was given to the refuges of Asia Minor and especially from the island of Propontida (Gallimi, Pasalimani, Skoupia). These refugees coming from regions nearby Instabul brought with them their culture, customs and values as well as a knowledge of the sea on which the development of the island is based. This is why the island has the second largest fleet of fishing boats in Greece!
You can't leave Ammouliani without trying fish and seafood
which will be the fresiest that you have ever tasted.
