Beaches

Beaches

There are two main beaches in Almyrida, both of which are sandy, pristine and well equipped. The sands shelve gently into crystal clear waters, making them ideal even for the youngest children. You can rent out kayaks, catamarans or paddle boards to explore the beautiful bay, or even paddle out to the tiny islet of Karga, now a refuge for wild birds. There is also some amazing diving near Almyrida, and local diving schools can arrange courses and excursions. One of the best is to the subterranean ‘Elephant Cave’ nearby – discovered only in 2000, this cave is named for the numerous prehistoric elephant bones found here.
