Astakos Beach

Here’s a picturesque and quiet coastal down built on the mountainside, with a wonderful beach below. This is not a busy beach generally, and the town is close enough for a meal, a rest or even a calm, beach-side stay for a couple of days. Remains of Venetian castles, ancient Astakos and Cyclops cave are a plus.
