Vlichos, a few kilometres south of Nidri, is an old fishing and ship owners' village. Many fishermen and shipbuilders still live here. The village has, if possible, an even more beautiful location than Nidri.

A lot of boats of different kinds moor in the wide bay, especially private yachts swings at anchor. The waterfront is lined with tavernas and pensions.

You can continue from Vlichos to the verdant and beautiful Yeni (or Geni) peninsula, which is located opposite Nidri. There are a number of small beaches on the peninsula, including Desimi beach and Korakia beach. If you drive to Dhesimi beach you will pass one of the strangest houses I have seen, the house is built like a boat and it looks as if a tsunami brought the boat / house on land.
