A beautiful resort with a bohemian feel to it. Its seafront is lined with tavernas and cafes with wooden platforms over the sand - wich creates an amazing atmosphere. Its small square is also cute and on the beach's egde. The beach is one of the best on the island, stretching for miles on end. It tends to be busier at weekends with Greek visitors taking time away from their routines. The area is well known as it was the place where Sappho, the feminist poetess was born.

The island of Nissiopi, opposite the the fishing village also has samples of the Petrified Forest, which is governed by the museum's authorities. The main beach of the village is wonderful - sandy bay overlooking the Medieval castle, the smallest on the island. The others are on the outskirts.
A beautiful harbour front is a great first impression for the capital. The buildings date back to the neo-classical era and have been preserved well to show their amazing architecture.
The castle is the largest in the Eastern Mediterranean and houses a number of concerts during the summer months.

On arrival you will not know what way to go. It doesnt matter as the beach commands this resort. Its one of the best and longest beaches on the island with its semi-precious pebbles and amazingly clear sea. Left takes you to the busiest area where most of the cafes and tavernas are located and right takes you to quieter parts and to the very end of the beach where Agios Fokas is located and the ancient site there. Its spectaular views are worth the drive there - an overall view of the area.
The second largest town on the island. Famous for its OUZO production - evident from the ouzo distilleries in the area. After your drive past Agios Isidoros you reach the town centre where you will see its harbour area and square. There you will also see most of the tavernas and cafes. Away from the seafront of the town are small narrow streets on either side of the river, narrow town like houses with balconies and winding hilly streets - it resembles an Italian village.

A small resort that has a fantastic stretch of beach, not too long or short. Its unique soft white pebbles make the sea even that more aqua clear blue that is amazingly enticing. This continues along the coast to Plomari and further onwards to Melinda.
A drive along this coast is definately worth it.
A few tavernas and cafes nestle close to the sea with nice sea views.
