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.
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?
