Discover the enchanting beaches
Pelion has a "mythical" beauty, just like its beaches. The "summer residence of the Gods and home of the Centaurs" is full of beaches that enchant with their beauty. Clear waters, dense vegetation and golden sand are some of the images one sees on the beaches of Pelion.
The beach of Agia Efthymia is located just 80m from the Anthillion rooms. It is a very picturesque bay with fine golden sand, small pebbles and emerald crystal waters in which green tamarind trees reflect their color. The beach is unorganized but the few trees that exist will give you their shade, while in the canteen, which operates in the summer months, you will be able to enjoy your coffee, a refreshing drink or a snack.
This is the beach of Tsagarada and it is not without reason that it is the most famous beach of Pelion! A huge rock dominates the middle of the beach, effectively dividing it in two beaches. Here, the combination of the golden sand and the blue-green waters of the Aegean exceeds all expectations. You might notice that the sand mixes with pebbles and stones. During the summer months the place is covered with umbrellas and sunbeds, while in the other side of the rock the area is free. So if you are lucky and find a place you can enjoy natural shade and coolness next to the rock, images that will surely remain indelible to you.
Undoubtedly, the beach of Potistika is one of the most beautiful beaches of South Pelion, from the side of the Aegean Sea. The beach is only 7km from the village of Argalasti and stands out for the imposing rocks that dominate the landscape, which in combination with the fine golden sand and the turquoise waters create a magical setting. It is a large unorganized beach 1 km long, but it has café-bars and restaurants nearby. Special care is needed when there is astorm, as the waves get very high and swimming becomes prohibited.
Melani beach is located next to Potistika beach and is famous for the deep blue of the sea, an element that also gave it’s name, reflecting the dark blue, crystal-clear waters. “Melani” in Greek means ink. Melani is a sandy beach where the dense green lush that surrounds it creates a beautiful landscape. The sea is deep and for this reason it is not recommended for people who cannot swim. The lack of organized activity on the beach is another element that helps you enjoy the absolute tranquillity!
On the way to Trikeri, in the south-eastern part of Pelion, you will find Tzasteni, a dreamy, picturesque beach, part of the Pagasitikon gulf. Impressively, the olive trees accompany the visitor almost to the beach. This is a little gem that few know about, a fact that will generously give you the absolute peace and authenticity of the locals. The beach is not organized, so be sure to stock up on the essentials to enjoy this unique beach. The natural landscape and the postcard-like images will impress and enchant you at the same time.
Fakistra is located on the side of the Aegean Sea, a breath away from Tsagarada, and is a hidden charismatic corner of Pelion. The landscape is characterized by its wild beauty, while the verdant hillside is reflected in the turquoise waters. Getting there requires a fifteen-minute walk on a cobbled path, but the view pays off without a doubt! This beach is also not organized so be sure to stock up on essentials before your arrival.
Plaka is a long sandy impressive beach, with small coarse pebbles, separated by a huge rock from the beach of Agios Ioannis. The beach is unique; clear blue-green waters and slopes covered with plane trees accompany the visitor's eye to the sea and compose a dreamy landscape. Plaka beach is half covered by umbrellas and sunbeds while the other half is free. It is one of the best beaches of Pelion which is definitely worth visiting.
