beach is spread. There, you will be able to enjoy the sea, the sun and the available
sea sports. Moreover, you can taste traditional dishes or fresh fish in the restaurants
and fish taverns along the beach or just enjoy the music in the beach bars with
a cold frappe.

restaurants and bars.
You might find interesting visiting the archeological places that
are still being excavated, or to follow the path that leads to the top of “Mesa
Vouno” mountain, where the city of “Archea Thira”
is located and shows the situation that existed thousand of years ago.
