AGHIA EFIMIA and South East

SE Coast beaches

Beaches along the south east coast tend to be pebbly and from Sami down to Poros the coastline offers mostly beaches which are inaccessible by road. Antisammos is probably the most famous in this area as it was one of the locations used when filming Captain Corelli's Mandolin.

Aghia Efimia

Once a Venetian fishing village, the pretty port of Aghia Efimia has some tiny pebbly coves reached by steps, or by clambering down rocks which can provide a more comfortable place to sunbathe.
Water here is clear as crystal with stunning views over to the island of Ithaca. No sunbeds around but plenty of places to eat and drink nearby.

Karavomilos

A picturesque location with a narrow shingle beach and a nearby watermill and duck pond. It is here that water which entered the island at Katavothres, spills into the sea after its long and cavernous journey underground.

Sami

From Karavomilos there is a narrow ribbon of shingle beach, which runs along the coastline to the east of Sami, a thriving harbour town. There is another town beach here to the west of the port.

Poros

Poros is more famous for its ferry connection with mainland Kilini, than for the local beaches. The town beach is very close to the shops and other facilities and you can hire sunbeds and beach umbrellas. It is a safe pebble beach suitable for children. The longer beach of Aragia which is pebble and shingle, is accessed by a bridge across a dry river bed and here you will find more beach facilities and motor-boats for hire. There are also tavernas nearby.
