The beautiful beach of Agiassos is located 21 km south from Chora, the last beach of the eastern side of the island. Agiassos is surrounded by green hills that harmonically match the blue of the sea. It is protected by strong winds whereas the shallow waters are quite safe for the children. The peaceful landscape and the taverns with the delicious dishes make Agiassos a lovely place to visit. Few accommodation is found along this long bay, which is also an ideal place for diving due to the clean water.
Gerolimnionas is a beautiful untouched beach located 3km from Chora and can be reached after almost a 30 minutes' walk following the dirt road and then the narrow scenic path. It is sandy and its turquoise waters make it ideal for snorkeling and spear fishing.
The incredibly beautiful beach resort of Mikri Vigla is located 18 kilometres away from the capital and consists in two wonderful sandy beaches separated by an impressive hill. The northern beach of Mikri Vigla is wonderful, with soft golden sand and crystalline turquoise waters and is blessed by the meltemi (north winds specific to the Cyclades) which make it an ideal place for wind/kitesurfing.
