Best Beaches in Greece
Simos Beach in Elafonisos23-04-2013 10:03Elafonisos is a small island between the Peloponnese and Kythira. It lies off the coast of Cape Malea and Vatika. This area of the island is 19 kmΒ².
The population is between 300 and 350 during the winter but increases dramatically in the summer months. During July and August the number of tourist visitors reach over 3,000 per day (bringing with them some 1,600 cars). Many people visit the island for its light coloured, sandy velvet beaches. Among the most well known of its beaches are Sarakiniko, Fragos (Simos) and Panagias Nissia, all filled with blue-green waters.
Elafonisos is by far the largest inhabited island in the Peloponnese archipelago, and the only one that is a separate municipality. There are also some archaeological discoveries to explore on the island and in the surrounding waters. The main church of the community is Agios Spyridon which is built on a tiny separate piece of land which is connected by a bridge over shallow waters to the rest of the island. The community's land area also includes 3 kmΒ² of the mainland consisting mainly of the famous Punta Beach.
On the nearby mainland, approximately 6.5 km east is Neapoli of the municipality of Vatika. About 8.5 km (4.5 nmi) south is Cape Frangos on the island of Kythira.
Elafonisos is a tiny, exotic island off the coast of Lakonia. It can be accessed by a small boat. Walk through the picturesque port and take a right. After crossing the dunes, you shall discover an incredible long beach with white sand and crystal clear, transparent waters.

Aktaion - Writing gastronomic history since 1922
Like a relay race of three generations; a journey with happy days, sad days, joys, sorrows, wars, Occupation, poverty, hunger, deaths, volcanic eruptions, catastrophic earthquakes, flee for a better life, return, better days, feasts, tourism explosion, financial crises and so on… Everything has been indelibly inscribed on the walls of this small building, Aktaion. I feel grateful that life has given me the opportunity to hold the reins of Aktaion all the way to its centennial.
