Kassos in Greece
Kassos, southwest of Karpathos, belongs to the Dodecanese islands, and is quite close to eastern Crete. It is a fairly small island both in terms of surface area and number of inhabitants, approximately 1,085 people live here distributed over a single village: Fry. The area is 69 km2 and the highest mountain - Prionas - measures 550 meters above sea level.

The main occupation on the island is fishing, and not tourism for the sake of the unusual. Kassos is mainly visited by Greeks and especially emigrating Greeks from the USA and Australia. The beaches are said to be mediocre, and there is not much to see.
Well, that's about all I know about Kassos. I have been to 65 Greek islands, Kassos as you understand is not one of them. Even the pictures are not from Kassos, I took them on the neighboring island of Karpathos, and are from the beaches of Lefkos and Kato Lakos.
