As the ship turns to starboard, the small township of Livadi slowly unfolds itself, with its pier, anchorage and blindingly white houses with their red tiled roofs huddling at the foot of the hill. Upon disembarking, the visitor will only get a fleeting impression of a port backdropped by hills. He will then discover that most of the scenic beauty of the island is hidden among those hills: charming sites, including Agia Triada and Agios Savvas are well worth a visit. Today, Livadi offers every comfort to visitors, from hotels, rooms to let, restaurants, coffee-shops, bars, souvenir shops and modern supermarkets.
Fishing boats and yachts make a pretty picture at the port's small quay. At the northern end of the port, one finds the parish church of Agia Triada. Its name day is celebrated in an exceptional manner throughout Livadi and the surrounding countryside. Traditionally, cows were kept, mainly for the daily consumption of fresh milk. No cheese was produced.
