A west coast wonder
The soft sands make Glyfada Beach a real draw – and it’s the focal point of this easy-does-it resort. Pitch up and hire a sunlounger or lay your towel down closer to the waves. If you’re keen to just relax, this is the hottest spot in town to do just that.
Grab a bite in Greece
As night-time rolls around, this sleepy town is more about the restaurants than bars. You can head over to other resorts for a tipple or two, but stay put and you’ll have a cluster of traditional tavernas ready to serve you great Greek dishes.
Surrounded by olive trees above the beckoning beach, Mirtiotissa Monastery sits pretty with a story to tell. It dates back hundreds of years and is located here after a religious icon was found in a cave enveloped by myrtles – or so the local tale says. Why not go and see the building for yourself?
