Beach: Pachia Ammos,
On the south shore about 15 km from Kamariotissa, is postcard, perfect nestled, between two arms of rock that extend into the sea, with dramatic cliffs rising above it. The beach offers 800 meters of sand and protected swimming, stretching from a well-developed south end (offering a beach bar, an excellent fish taverna, fresh-water showers, and chaise lounges with sun umbrellas) to a quiet and undeveloped end on the north (offering peace and solitude). The beach is accessible by bus from Kamariotissa.
The second most popular beach is Kipos, a kilometers-long pebble beach that curves around the eastern tip of the island. Though it lacks Pachia Ammos‘s sand, it does offer very comfortable sunbathing, crystal-clear water for snorkeling and diving, and an even stronger dose of peace and solitude (although there is a small food stand). Kipos lies about 18 km east of Therma on the north shore road, and also can be reached by bus.
For the less adventurous, the riverine forest that is at the mouth of Fonias, full of perennial plane trees and matchwood, as well as its Medieval Tower, is a small but characteristic idea of the beauty that Fonias river has to offer.
Accessible only by boat, to the east of Pachia Ammos, is Vatos, a beach of unique beauty, surrounded by high rocks with caves. There you can find a sandy beach, coolish waters, “vathres” and waterfalls. At the last 200m before reaching the sea, the waters disappear, continuing underground.
Some people chose to stay there for a night or more, in tents or sleeping bags. If you stay there for more days, the boat can bring you some necessary things like bread, water, beers etc. During summer, boats come everyday, except in case of stormy weather.
