Donousa Beaches

Gorgeous Mediterranean beaches abound in Donousa, with alternating blue and green waters. Even the town beach of Stavros is gorgeous, so too are the beaches around Kedros. The beach of Vathi Limenari can be reached by daily beach boat ('lantza' in Greek) which takes you there in the morning and returns in the evening. Negotiate with the boatmen to take you there during the low season or better yet, just hike there.

The second longest beach in the island after Kedros is Livadi, located just below Mersini. You can reach it in an hour or so by foot following the road to Mersini. Not far is the tiny yet lovely beach of Fikio which is perfect for one or two couples.


Kalotaritissa has three beaches. The first two, called Mesa Ammos and Sapounochoma (which roughly means 'soap dust' just to give you an idea of its beauty) are located right next to the little village of Kalotaritissa. Fifteen minutes further along is the beach of Trypiti which is another quiet and beautiful swimming spot to enjoy. All can be reached by footpaths.
