When visiting Afitos you’ll see the cobbled streets of an old-world village, set on a hillside above a white sand bay. The sand is fine, the village is friendly, and though there’s a fairly steep path in between, there are tavernas and a beach bar down by the gently shelving shore … so you needn’t come back to the village for a leisurely lunch. Walk off your meal at the water’s edge and, if you go right to the northern end, you’re rewarded with the discovery of a semi-secret cove. Quiet, sheltered and ideal for an afternoon of undisturbed sun-worship. Back in Afitos, evenings are low key – focused on the few bars and traditional tavernas. A perfect places for a relaxed holiday.
The stretch of white sand that forms the beach in Afitos will tempt any sun lover and the enticing sea is a great place to cool off with a refreshing swim.
