Donkey Island without Donkeys

Agios Nikolaos, Greece

Golden Island as the locals calls Gaidouronisi (I heard that it means donkey Island). It is a extremely small and extremely beautiful. If you are looking for a place to take a break from city life that is the ideal spot. The Island has no construction, shops etc. totally inhabited except the campers. There are daily small ships carrying people and bringing food and water to campers upon phone order. Cell phones works on rare spots so if you want to order something you need to ask to other campers where there is cellphone reception available. About camping important note: it is forbidden to camp with tents! So some people just sleep with sleeping-bags which is ok since temperatures do not drop much at night.
The most fascinating thing about the Island except from the golden sea is the nights. It has such a wonderful sky at night since there is no city light the civilization is far you can see the galaxy!
