The Elani Beach - a hidden paradise in Kassandra

During our stay in Kallithea, Kassandra, we prefer to swim at the end of the beach.

At the entrance to the sea, there are some big flat stones and rocks, but after them, the sea is a true paradise. There are also...

Small advices

A dozen families that I expected were returned from the border because of the expired children's passports. Children's passports, according to the applicable law, are valid for only 2 years. Many parents, knowing that they recently got their children's passports, hit the road not knowing that they would be returned from the border.
