Gerakas Beach, Vasilikos

#1 of 9 in Parks in Vasilikos
One of the island's most scenic and unspoiled beaches, Gerakas Beach boasts golden sand and clear turquoise water. Rent a lounge chair or go for a dip along the calm, shallow shore. Amenities here are more limited than many beaches in the area, so bring a lunch or snacks and lots of water. Please be aware that this is a protected area of the National Marine Park and an important nesting ground for loggerhead turtles. Watch for any nests you may disrupt and if you are lucky enough to see a turtle hatch, do not disturb it.
