Welcome to Fry
The capital, Fry (pronounced free), is on the north coast. The broad gentle valley behind it is the only fertile land on Kasos, so the only other villages are dotted across the surrounding hillside. Although Fry is more of a working port than a tourist destination, the tiny old harbour at its core, known as Bouka, is impossibly photogenic. Pretty white houses with navy-blue trim line the quay, a few cafes sit waiting for customers, grizzled fishermen patiently mend their nets, and the pastel-blue church of Agios Spyridon surveys the scene. Even as late as June, though, Fry still has the feel of a ghost town.
The nearest beach is 10 minutes’ walk east along the shoreline, in the tiny satellite port of Emborio. There are patches of gravel amid the sand, but the sea is clear and sheltered, so it’s a good place for a quick dip.
