This really is turning out to be a beach holiday – well on the days we had sunshine anyway. We aren’t ‘sit on the beach all day’ people but with the lack of excursions (I had really wanted to go to Albania and a trip to Corfu or one of the Sivotan islands) we are making the best of things and also taking the opportunity to relax.
At the marina there is a set of steps that leads up to a path that takes you around the bay in the opposite direction to the beaches we had already visited. The first beach we come to is Gallikos Molos Beach, a narrow stretch of sand and stone with the most crystal of waters. It’s too cold to swim but it is heaven to walk along the deserted beach. The view from here to the Sivotan islands is beautiful.
The next beach we reach is Zeri Beach where we are surprised to see water park complete with multi coloured water slides. It seems so out of place here.
The path takes us back up onto the road again and we access the beach from behind the water park. The beach doesn’t disappoint and we’re quite happy to spend the rest of the day here.
That evening we decide to have our final meal down at the marina. Vangelis is out on the prowl for tourists but we are keen to try another taverna on the front. We choose O Faros which is next to Vangelis’s restaurant and he provides us with some good entertainment as he tried to entice tourists in. There is clearly stiff competition amongst the restaurants in the marina.
We can see a man sitting on the harbour wall selling small bags of oregano – we buy a couple of bags to take home. Our meal is a great feast. We start with tzatziki and dolmades, Peter has the seafood platter and I have lamb stifado – one of my favourites.
This is a nice last meal of the holiday!
