Something for everybody and always the right thing


You reach the neighbouring village of Agios Ioannis in 35 minutes walking (10 minutes by car). You have to pass the beach of Papa Nero with its white sand (see header picture above).

The beach is 1 km long and has three taverns. From here until the end of Agios Ioannis you walk on a fine promenade financed by the EU (you understand it by the yellow stones for blind people). In July and August, a barrier impedes cars to enter Papa Nero.

In Agios Ioannis the way takes you along taverns and small shops until you reach the harbour.

From there you can walk to the beach of Plaka with turquoise water like in the southern sea. Walking in southern direction from Damouchari, a footpath leads you in 45 minutes to the bay of Fakistra, a romantic place, unfortunately without tavern.


By car you need 15 minutes to go up to Tsangarada, the main village with its shadowed market places Agia Paraskevi and Agia Taxiarchis. It takes 1 hour to arrive at Zagora and Pouli. You will not find any antic ruins, but medieval churches and wonderful views.
