The village of Almyrida near the bay is a small fishing village, with real tavernas on the shoreline, great and cheap food, and amazing accommodations.
Those dreaming of the relaxing Greek beaches, will love the air of vacation over this area. In the wonderful beach of the bay you can enjoy a more Greek village vacation, without big crowds of tourists.
Here, you can sit at a cafe near the water, or on the beach itself, with your feet in the warm water, and kids playing around. The secret to this beach is not only the absence of waves, but also the depth of the sea, about 60 centimeters, safe for children to enjoy. The atmosphere here fits the scene- kids playing on the beach and in the water, without too much supervision, but without excessive yelling and screaming.
In short, with the hypnotizing bay, the great beach, that delicious food and welcoming people- it is worth to stop by here, even for a few hours, for a few days, and enjoy the island.
