Ikaria-the global phenomenon of long life

According to Greek Mythology the island of Icaria (in Greek: Ikaria) took its name from
Icarus the son of Daedalus who landed on the island when the sun burnt his wax wings.
The sea around the island owes its name to that legend, and it is called Icarian. The island
is famous for its feasts during the summer season and its residents are known for their
longevity. Apart from that, Ikaria has numerous beaches, sandy or pebbly, popular or
isolated surrounded by crystal clear waters.

Some of the most famous beaches of the island are Magganitis which is a sandy beach
among massive rocks which have been left after digging through the mountain to build
a tunnel to the village. Another beach named Armenistis is very popular with the youth.
Finally, Seychelles is one of the most gorgeous beaches of our selection and its name
can be attributed to its locals.

  • Visit numerous beaches

When it comes to celebrations, the island’s residents are the best at organizing feasts with live music, plenty of food and traditional homemade wine. With a cost of a small contribution from the visitors, the local government can finance its public works. Almost every day during August, there is a different feast organized in a different village of the island either for religious or social reasons. People dance to the sounds of folk live music all night living a genuine Icarian experience. The island's wild nature gives this incredible opportunity of hiking. People there used to walk from their villages to their farms, thus creating numerous paths to follow ranging from moderate level to very difficult one.
