Psalidia beach

0 (0 Reviews)

Beach description

Venture from Makrigialos towards Goudouras, and post Lagada, take a right onto a dirt path that guides you to the greenhouses located on the petite peninsula at the eastern extremity of the bay. Continue along this path, past the greenhouses, to discover the secluded pebbly beach of Spilia, home to a small cave. This spot is typically deserted, though unfortunately, streams often carry litter here. Proceeding westward along the road, you’ll soon reach the remote sandy beach of Psalidia, named after the Greek word for scissors, a reference to the bay’s shape. The surrounding landscape is arid, dotted with low sand dunes and shrubs. However, come September, it transforms into a haven of white sand daffodils. Furthermore, a coastal walk from Psalidia to Lagada rewards you with spectacular rock formations, perfect for photography.
