Going to the Beach
Perissa and Perivolos are a great choice for going to the beach. It is also called “black beach”, because of the black little pebbles/stones that you find there. A 4km long shore, with many restaurants to choose from.
Red beach is famous for its red sand. You will have to walk to get there and you will not find umbrellas, or other facilities.
Vlyhada is also a nice beach for swimming. Lots of restaurants.
