Although far away and with a relatively difficult road, it is definitely worth going to Agia Paraskevi. It is a beautiful and quiet beach with natural shade from the trees that reach the sea. It has a very simple accommodation facility, with umbrellas and sunbeds 3 meters from the sea and also a small restaurant.

3. Bekiri Cave

A unique natural phenomenon worth visiting. The path is 150 meters long from the edge of the beach. Access is not that difficult, but it requires solid attention. And of course, since it’s a cave, it is dark inside, so a flashlight is required. Worth to see the formations from the stalactites around the area.

4. Bouboulina’s Statue
