“A magnificent beach with golden sand and crystal shallow waters!”
Reviewed August 13, 2013

Agios Petros beach is located 2 klm far from the port of Andros island, Gavrio. The beach is very beautiful, with golden sand and warm shallow waters, that makes it ideal for families with young children. Some taverns can also be found here for a great meal with local delicacies and fresh fish. It has 2 beach bars very well-organized ("Kaliva" and "St.Peters)... you may also find Andros Surf Club which provides both rental and lessons for both windsurfing and SUP stand up paddle sports for ages 7 years of age + up.
Right above the beach, on a cliff, you will also admire the cylindrical tower of St. Petros from which the beach was named after.The tower of Agios Petros is a quite well-preserved tower, placed on a hill overlooking the bay of Gavrio. It was probably built in the Hellenistic Era, in the 4th or 3rd century B.C., and is 20m high. A magnificent area of Andros island! Be there.

“Great beach, chill music, clear water...”
Reviewed August 24, 2011

Agios Petros beach is a place for everyone. It has a clean beach with an easy slope to get into the water. This is the better side of the island, as it's more or less protected from stronger current and wind on the other side.

There is a nice bar where snacks, sandwiches and drinks can be bought. On the other side of the parking there is a restaurant if you like a complete meal. Nice restaurant too!

On some days in the evening there are parties and their DJ is very good.

A perfect beach on a fantastic island. No picture available from the beach, but didn't want to leave nothing...therefore two pictures of the island.
