A pleasant surprise awaits the visitor after reaching Dichalia and starting to descend to Antisamos Beach. A splendid canvas of green is painted in all imaginable shades of blue and white.
From that vintage location, the view of the emerald beach is an awesome experiences for the senses, every single time.
The turquoise waters of the Ionian Sea reach out to embrace the incredibly white pebbles which in turn fade into the magnificent green surrounding scenery of the mountainside.
Antisamos is one of the best beaches on the island and the entire Ionian region as well.
It is this untamed beauty that captured the imagination of the producers of "Captain Corelli's Mandolin" when they decided to use it as a location for the filming of the movie.
