Tree-shaded cafés line up along the paved prom by the south-side beach, so refreshments are always close at hand. Follow the peninsula around Possidi Cape to see how sweeping sand dunes set the scene for awesome snaps – don’t miss the temple or colonial-style lighthouse on the way. On the northern shore, everyone flocks to the beach bar for sunset drinks.
How does a table stacked with lemon-drizzled prawns, crispy calamari and big bowls of garlicky mussels sound? You’ll be hard pushed to find fresher – and finer – seafood than at the charming bistros taking pride of place by the beach. Pull up a seafront seat, order an ouzo and look forward to full-on feasting for a few hours.
