Vassilikos holidays: Things to see and do
One of the best things about Vassilikos holidays is that there are so many different beaches to explore: from Agios Nikolaos, which is one of the most popular for diving, and Xehoriati, perfect for swimming and snorkelling, to Ionion, Gerakas, Porto Roma and Banana Beach. Indeed, it doesn't matter if holidaymakers are looking for watersports, rocky cliffs with stunning views or pristine stretches of sand, they will be sure to find the right beach. The stunning formations known as the Blue Caves, which are natural arches eroded from the rocky coast, can be visited by boat.
Away from the coast, nature lovers can explore the lush interior on scenic trails leading through forests, mountains, olive groves and along the coast. Travellers with an interest in marine life will want to keep one eye on the surf between June and August, when the loggerhead sea turtles come to the beaches to nest.
