“Best spot in town”
Review of Bourtzi Beach

The first time we went to town we visited Bourtzi, a peninsula that separates the old port from the new port. It was a fortress in old times and now isa place for art and culture and relaxation. There is a small museum with musical instruments from all around the world and it is very interesting and the lady at the ticket counter (2 euros entrance!) is always eager to give information. There is also an open theater which hosts interesting events throughout the summer and an exhibit space. At the back side there is a small café under the pines where it is very nice to sit and have a drink with all this view in front and there are also some stairs leading to a small, rocky beach if one feels like swimming or just relaxing romantically under the stars. Very nice!

We visited Burtzi in a cloudy day and we were amazed. The whole scenery was like a painting . The little café at the back is picturesque and there are some stairs that lead to a very small, rocky beach that one can have a quick dive! The museum is very interesting and the open theatre at the back, too.

As we love culture and art, we visited burtzi at the port and we were amazed by the big collection of musical instruments from all over the world! At the back side of the museum there is a café with great view. We advice you to have a drink there!

At the foot of an old fortress in the city center right next to the harbour. No sand, but good for a refreshing urban dip during the hotter hours of the day.
