From the harbor, walk about one kilometer west to find the beaches of Nea Chora. There are excellent amenities here to make your stay pleasant and stress-free. You get to rent a sun lounger and umbrella, grab a cold drink, and relax on a clean, well-groomed stretch of sand. The beach is rocky in places, so wear appropriate beach shoes. The water is clean, safe for swimming. Families with young children are the common visitors of Nea Chora.
If you are lucky to be there during the Sardine Festival, you get to sample free fish and experience music and fun like a local. Try a traditional fish taverna close to the beach if you miss the festival.
