Chalikia Beach has the best swimmingwater. Pure and crystal-clean water. And Chalikia Beach is idyllic with a fantastic view over the sea. It is a stone-beach, but there are sunbeds and sunshades. The best cafe in the town, Votsalo, is located 20 meter from Chalikia...More

Pebbled beach, a little problematic to get into the sea, so shoes/sandals are a good advice. Once this is solved, this is a good place for swimming, long stretches, close to shore if needed. Sufficient sun beds and parasols for rent, open air showers available...More

Excellent beach, into which we headed forcedly, as it was so windy at the sandy beach other side of the peninsula that there was sand in the air feeling like needles. But, a really good accident! A very rare beach consisting purely of these around...More

Very nice beach and very clear waters. Still, you may need some plastic shoes if you want to get in and out easily. Interesting that there are messages - text written at the bottom of the sandy sea with little stones taken from the beach!

Clear clear water, breathtaking views, and so convenient for the town and the local tavernas. Take some suitable footwear to walk down to the water ( a very short distance ) as walking on the pebbles can be painful, but worth it! There are plentiful...More
