Vathi beach is a beautiful wineglass bay with sheltered safe swimming from soft sand and easy snorkelling not far off shore. There are 4 tavernas and 3 different cafes on the beach. There are sunbirds for hire and a lot of space so that it...More

in case it gets too crowded... An idyllic spot. Spend a few hours here- pork svoulaki lunch, a swim, sunbathe and then wander around the local pottery shop to take a little piece of Vathi away with you.

Beautiful beach, few restaurants available, parking is limited as well as beach chairs. This will highly depend on the month you visit, in September we found chairs very easily. We are at Manolis Restaurant and it was excellent.

We arrived at vathi around 11 in the morning so we had the chance to find two of the few left sunbeds with our umbrella (15€ to rent). The waters are crystal clear and shallow enough for young children. Nice beach with a few tavernas...More

The village of Vathy is a great place to stay, basically every hotel is right on the beach (literally a 10m walk from the doorstep) and the beach is so nice for walking along and relaxing on. It's also sheltered so the ocean... More
