Donoussa belongs to the Small Cyclades cluster, spead at the eastern side of Cyclades, with Naxos, Koufonissia, Mykonos and Amorgos as its neighbouring islands. It is a small and definately less touristic island, which covers just 14 square km and has 170 residents.
Characterized by some as a paradise, forgotten and unexplored by mass tourism and this is so true! The unspoiled landscape of the island characterized by a semi-mountainous relief, smooth hills covered by sparse vegetation and cedar-trees, fabulous beaches of excellent green-blue waters, and small coves reminds anew to the visitor the positive influence that nature exert in humans.
The few villages of the island are untouched by massive tourism. The lovely bright white houses, the colours of the flowers in the yards, the fresh air enriched by a scent of sea and flowers, the idyllic squares where the open-hearted locals are gathering, create a serene and charming atmosphere.
For decades now, Donoussa has been a favourite destination to those who are longing for serenity, to nature-lovers. In recent years there is a growing number of visitors and the accommodation facilities have been considerably expanded.
Maybe Donoussa doesn’t offer many luxuries on material lever or choices for intense nightlife; however it is an island that one can have the luxury to relive the beauty of the simplicity; to re-estimate the value of the artless aesthetic and to remember the revitalizing effect of the direct contact; with nature, with the others; with oneself.
