Messakti Beach, Ikaria

The picturesque and unique beach of Messakti is one of the island’s most well-known. The Myrsonas River flows behind it, creating a wetland, and along with it, an almost tropical setting.

It’s also one of the most popular and few places within the Aegean that surfing is possible. A surfing school offering lessons for ¬†levels is located on the beach.
