|The island of Tragonisi or Dragonisi in Greece|
Tragonisi or Dragonisi is a small and rocky island just east of the island of Mykonos. The island is uninhabited and accessible only by private boat, because there are no ferries going its direction.
Tragonisi is a popular destination for divers because of its sea caves. Diving here is apparently worthwile because there are several chambers and tunnels in the caves. The area is the exclusive habitat of the yellow sea anemone. There is also on the island a beautiful small sandy beach that is surrounded by high cliffs. Tragonisi is a protected nature reserve and a haven for the monachus - monachus seal. They swim mainly around the "Seal Cave" which can be visited by experienced divers.
