Beaches in Afytos
Afytos has three beaches but, the central one is purely rocky, with sharp surfaced stone slabs in the water.
To the right from Afytos, lies the Liosi beach, named after the eponymous bar. It’ very long, mainly narrow on the coast, but it’s not crowded. The entry to the water is gradual, mostly with rocky plates at the bottom. However, anyone can find an appropriate place on this beach. It’s arranged, with bars, sunbeds and umbrellas, as well as plenty of space for visitors with their own equipment. Some parts of this beach are sandy.
The only entirely sandy part of the beach in Afitos is on the far left side facing the sea. It’s the beach called Varkes (boats). It’s located in a lee, where the sea is always calm, so there are plenty of tied boats (after which the beach was named). Varkes is a very beautiful beach, with gradual depth. The sea is clean and one part of the beach is free, while the other is arranged, with umbrellas and sunbeds. It’s sandy the shore and in the water, so it’s suitable for families with children. The only disadvantage is that it’s quite crowded during the high season.
