Which Greek Island Blog

St Nicholas

St Nicholas beach, also known as Agios Nikolaos is on the east coast of the Vasilikos peninsular. It’s largely 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 lined with trees and sandy with a handful of sun loungers but no taverna or entertainment.

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 other areas and around 300m long with the entire length from Banana beach up past Ionio beach 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. At under 200m long and just 15m at it’s widest, Kaminia is a small but well organised beach. Sunbeds and umbrellas are available 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 relatively small beach at just 160m wide and around 30m deep so there’s room for 3 or 4 rows of sun loungers. There’s no taverna on Plaka beach itself but there’s one just set back a few metres behind the beach.

Porto Koukla

Porto Koukla is in the bay of Laganas, south west of Agios Sostis beach, it's narrow at just 10m but stretches for around 200m. There’s a single row of sun loungers and a taverna on the grass verge behind the beach which offers lovely views out to Marathonisi island.
