Vathy is a pretty narrow and sandy wild beach. Not organized, and it has no sunbeds or showers. The sea is unreal clear and transparent, and shoal is long.
It features with sand, soft and bright and like flour, so the water is bright blue, and in the afternoon it’s emerald green because of the lush vegetation around.
The beach is rarely crowded because the road that leads to it is not so good. It’s about 7,5km from Limenas. The road leads next to the Makryammos and Marble (Saliara) beach. When you get to Saliara, continue straight forward along the coast, after 500m you’ll pass by Porto Vathy beach, and 1,5km later you’ll reach Vathy beach. The path to Saliara and Porto Vathy was repaired in 2015, so you can easily go by car down to these beaches.
It takes another five minutes of a quiet, easy drive along the gravel road from Porto Vathy to Vathy beach. In the backside of the beach it’s just an abandoned hotel and plenty of woods. If you visit this beach in June or September, it can happen that you’re completely alone. If you are adventurous and like to enjoy pure nature, Vathy beach will remain like the most beautiful memory.
