Up to early 1900s, Ammouliani was a dependency of Vatopedi Monastery of Mount Athos. In 1925, the island was given in the refugees' families who had come from islands of Propontis (Marmaras Sea), after Asia Minor Disaster.[2] The population of the island was developed quickly and today the island has over 500 residents. Nowadays Ammouliani is a touristic place with frequent transportation with the opposite coast.
