Once you arrive to welcome you there will be a lovely tavern that offers fresh fish. Then wooden steps lead to this delicious gravel beach mixed with fine grey sand, bathed by a beautiful crystal clear, transparent and rather low sea in which you will take long swims! At the beginning of the beach there is a bar, where you can tease or have a drink, and umbrellas and sunbeds, while the second half of the beach is not equipped, so you can decide to move to this area if you prefer nature around you! The beach of Stafilos owes its name to King Stafilos, which locals assume will once have landed here. It's easy to reach by local buses or private cars, so don't worry about the route! On days when the wind blows from the north and west you can go here! This little paradise will protect you from the dreaded winds giving you the chance to relax to the fullest! Stay until the evening so you can enjoy a good dinner in the tavern adjacent to the parking lot and in the meantime admire a fantastic sunset view!
Very pretty beach, easy to enjoy. Organized beach on one side with a snack bar, free beach on the other side with a kayak stand. There’s no parking lot so you’ll have to find a spot on the street.
It is an organized beach with 1 bar, umbrellas and sunbeds, but there is also empty space. The water is quite shallow and hence good for Children at least at the entry. It is not that wide, therefore expect a lot of crowd. The views are spectacular and by foot you can go to Velanio beach in case you wish. Worth to note that this is not a sandy beach, but has pebbles.
