The beaches of the island are not cosmopolitan or fully organized, but they are clean, with crystal clear sea, as the whole island is.
In summer the most popular means of transportation is the boat. Excursion boats will get you to almost all the beaches, especially to those accessible only by boat. There are also excursion boats which make the tour of the island, stopping in some of the beaches for a quick dive or a longer swim. It is worth saying that it is only during this tour that you may see the famous Chrysospilia cave (“the golden cave”) as well as the cave of Georgitsi, a place where seals use to live.
Since 2003, there are organized every year, in July, the summer cultural activities known as "Folegandros Festivities". This festival is part of the "Isolario" project, a series of activities that started to run in 2003 at Folegandros and year after year are covering other small islands of the Cyclades.
