The picturesque beach of Saint Antonios has a small fishing port, a coast famous for its rocks, and some hotels, restaurants and cafes. The beautiful beach of Plaka, suitable for swimming, is situated a few kilometers away at the western part of the island.


The biggest part of Eristos beach is covered with golden sand. The beauty of the beach and the sea will tempt you to sunbathe, swim, dive, play games on the sand and take walks along the coast. The fishermen are usually there cooking the fish of the day.

Apart from Eristos beach, the peaceful and pebbled Lethra beach will fascinate you. You will follow the path that begins from Livadia and continues up to the end of the rock which is above the sea. You reach the neighboring Skasi taking another path. Moreover, two small ships leave Livadia daily and head for beaches that are inaccessible from the road, such as Skafi, Tholo and Saint Sergios.
