Where do you sunbathe?
« on: August 28, 2003, 11:36:18 AM »
After the succes of Johns spending poll I thought I would try again after the dismal failure of my doughnut poll  

I think most of us like to catch a bit of the sun whilst we are out there and go for a swim. Where do you prefer do it, as it were?

We tend to go somewhere in the middle of Plakias Bay for the simple reason that it is the closest spot to the Nikos Studios that we have stayed in, plus there isn't a long walk to Kyma for that after-beach beer

I wouldn't call your doughnut poll a failure!
It got 11 votes and certainly confirmed the popularity of Leftheris' wares.
I can't think of a beach vendor anywhere else who is as memorable.
He cracks me up every time with his 'Extra vitamina!'

Anyway, it's the far end for me as you can see from my signature.
Close to Palegremnos for lunch, sand dunes to roam, trees for shade, beds and brollies for hire, handy shower, rocky bits for snorkeling and you can get your kit off for sunbathing and swimming.  Delightful!  And no white bits!

Blimey, hadn't checked in a while. Thought I only had 2 votes! This reply notification jobby seems a bit tempremental.
Leftheris is certainly a character though i'm sure his quote that a doughnut a day keeps all the doctors away wouldn't get space in the Lancet!

John,

Cheers

No Neil.
By 'the far end' I mean the eastern end of Plakias bay, not far from Palegremnos taverna, number 18 on the Anso Travel map.  Not far from the hill known as Koriki or Kakamouri which leads down to the Kakamouri headland.

Souda (or Sweetwater) is to the west of Plakias town and west of Skinos beach.
It's about 2km from town.
Near number 1 on the map.

Hope this helps.

Looks like the Far Enders have it 'in the bag' - the best sand and, as you say john, no white bits (hopefully not too many red bits though )

I voted for Damnoni, but I really meant the small Beaches further east. Mind you with all these umbrellas etc I don't know if I would still enjoy those.
cheers

While Plakias beach is great and you can go nude there, you can end up being samdblasted a bit there when the wind gets up, so my favourite beach is Mikro Ammoudi (the small one which is the next one along the coast eastwards from Damnoni).  As the beach is very small pebbles it eliminates the sandpaper effect and being 99.9% naturist makes it a must if you want to get your togs off!

Couldn't agree more - the water there is clear and the waves are great fun.  Investing in an umbrella is a must unless you like the full sun and the water not so good if you don't like 'being out of your depth'. The walk is good exercise as well.
