Kastellorizo's best beaches

Nobody goes to Kastellorizo for the nice beaches. And it is not strange at all, because there are no beaches on the island. In fact, Kastellorizo is the only island in Greece that I have been to that has no beaches.

You might think that there should be some small beach. Well, there is a beach called Plakes and it is made of limestone. You can go there by excursion boat. Picture from Plakes is further down and where you can see that it is not a beach you make waves for. There is also a beach called Mandraki, which also does not live up to the epithet beach. At least I don't think so. I have never seen anyone swim there and I would never imagine doing it. However, it is excellent to swim at the church of Saint George, there is also an excursion boat. And if you're lucky, you can swim in the Blue Cave.

Instead of beaches, one is directed to the large bay that surrounds Megisti. Along the port promenade there are sunbeds and umbrellas for rent, and bathing ladders to go up and down into the water. It is of course just as well to dive or jump into the water. When it's not windy, you can compare the large bay to a giant swimming pool. There is nothing wrong with the water, it is both inviting and bathing-friendly.
