Which Greek Island Blog

Psarou

Psarou beach is a rugged stretch of sand on the north east coast. There’s no sun loungers or water sports so it’s a lot quieter than some of the other beaches in the area but it’s still a good option for families as the sand is good and the water is shallow.

St Nicholas

St Nicholas beach, also known as Agios Nikolaos is on the east coast of the Vasilikos peninsular. It’s covered in sun loungers with just a small section at the northern end left clear, this is also where you'll find the small church that gives the beach it's name.

Tsilivi

Tsilivi is popular with families and couples and this means the beach is also busy. Luckily it's over a kilometre long so there’s plenty of space for everyone, it's sandy and a regular recipient of the international Blue Flag award for its cleanliness.

Xechoriatis

Xechoriatis beach, otherwise known as Old Alykanas beach or even Xhoriati beach is around 200m long but incredibly narrow, just a couple of metres in places. The beach is sandy, lined with trees and has a handful of sun loungers but no taverna.

Gerakas

The stunning bay of Gerakas is an unspoiled section of coast that’s the perfect spot for a tranquil break away from the more tourist heavy beaches on the island. There's only a few sun beds available to rent, no water sports, no taverna and no music.

Ionio

Ionio beach is a continuation of Banana beach on the north coast of the Vasilikos peninsula, it's just 10m deep in some places but over 40 in others and around 300m long with the entire length from Banana beach up past Ionio being way over a kilometre.

Kalamaki

The crystal clear, shallow waters of Kalamaki Beach offer safe swimming for kids and excellent snorkelling for nature lovers. In addition to loads of fish, you might encounter a sea turtle, as this extension of Laganas Beach is a common nesting location.

Kaminia

Kaminia beach, also known as Porto Kaminia beach is on the north coast of the Vasilikos peninsula. It's a small beach at just under 200m long and 15m wide. It's well organised with sunbeds and umbrellas both on the beach and on the grass verge.

Laganas

beach is sandy and absolutely huge, it's covered in rows and rows of sun loungers that are quite tightly packed in. Beach side bars play music and water sports like ringos, jetskis, banana boats and more keeps everyone entertained throughout the day.

Plaka

Plaka is on the north coast of the Vasilikos peninsular. It’s a fairly small beach at just 160m wide and around 30m deep so room for 3 or 4 rows of sun loungers. There’s no taverna on Plaka beach but there’s one just set back a few metres behind the beach.
