Pahia Ammos

An isolated, crystal-clear beach that’s just 15 minutes away from Chora with blue-green water and golden sand that fully justifies its name that translates to “thick sand” in English. You won’t find lounge chairs and umbrellas, but there’s a café restaurant beside the parking area. A trademark sign of the beach is a huge sand dune that invites youngsters to… slide down.

At Kionia, you can swim under the watchful gaze of the god Poseidon as his temple dominates the region. After a dip, you’ll be spoiled for food choices as there are many picturesque taverns in the area.

St. Fokas
