Acháta, Apélla, Kíra Panagía

Famous beaches on the east coast, sometimes difficult to reach by car. You better take a boat from Pigádia or Diafáni (Diafáni: ask for Nikos' tourist office).

Kíra Panagía

The road to this beautiful place has been asphalted now. Take the road from Pigadia to Apéri first and then down to Kíra Panagía. There is a newly build comfortable hotel too.
