Angali beach in Folegandros
Almost exactly in the middle of the island (where it is narrowest) lies the popular - and very attractive - Angali beach (also spelled Agali). I write middle of the island, but I hope you understand that I mean the middle of the island, but by the sea. :-)

Angali is the most popular beach on Folegandros, and there are many reasons. The main reason is obvious, the beach is a really good one with lovely sand and crystal clear blue shimmering water. A few meters to the left of the main beach is a small beach surrounded by cliffs. (To get there, you have to wade in the water.) From the cliffs, you can dive into the inviting water. A bit further to the left is Fira, a pebbly beach (very large stones), reached via the water or a narrow path.

To get to the cliffs, you have to wade a few steps into the water.

The only drawback with Angali is that there is no shade. Fortunately, there are tavernas that gives shade, on the beach and a short way above. Before you arrive at the beach - where the bus stops - there is a shop and a cafe.

ACCOMMODATION IN ANGALI
For those who wants to stay a few nights there are two or three places to choose from. I have never stayed in Angali, but if I should do it, I had chosen stay at Pasithea Folegandros or Perigiali Rooms & Apartments which both look very nice.
