Spend a Day at the Beach
The west coast of the island is where you’ll find its many sandy beaches. Glifada is a wide, long beach that tends to be peaceful, situated in the less busy south end of the island, framed by calm, shallow waters. Chalikounas is an unspoiled, long stretch of sand nestled between the Adriatic and a lake, providing an especially unique landscape that’s ideal for getting away from the crowds, while Issos is just next door with its high sand hills along the shore. While it tends to be busy, lined with cafes and bars, Kassiopi sits at the edge of a picturesque bay with crystal-clear, calm waters.
