Porto Katsiki

One of the most beautiful beaches is located deep below the white chalky shore of Porto Katsiki. A staircase leads steeply over 100 steps to the pebbled beach. Pushchairs are thus completely unsuitable.

Shattered by a rock fall, the wonderful situation is that you have to wade through the water to get to the larger part of the beach.

The chalk wall beams the heat uncomfortably on to the guests, while you are glad about you brought the drinking water with you. There are some tervernas at the top of the stairs, but you do not want to climb there.

Spread your blanket out for a day of unforgettable beauty and enjoy the gorgeous turquoise waters. Bring your own food or have some fast Food at a local tavern when it comes to dinner, because you have to see and enjoy the magical sunset and the sight of the cliffs turning orange.

Do not enter the zone of dangerous areas. These areas are there to prevent you from approaching the landslide-dangerous points of the beach.


Even if the beach is no longer crowded like the Pre-Corona times, can it get very noisy, because a ship winds daily its way through the bathers like a mobile disco and its sounds gets the whole beach blasted with loud music during the whole stay.
