If you have to pick one beach to visit in the area, make sure it’s Glyka Nera. We walked from Loutro and the path is quite easy with great views and other nice spots to swim towards the end. Glyka Nera is the perfect ending....More
This is a lovely beach. However, it is really busy at this time of year which does detract a bit. Lots of tents pitched at the back of the beach meaning that you can’t sit under those trees even if there is no one in...More
