The beach of Gefyra is next to Therma and is one of the main beaches of Pothia. It is a small but beautiful beach with pebbles, rocks and vegetation. The sea water is turquoise and very clean.
The road west out of Pothia leads to the village of Vothini then down to the inlet at Vlychadia where there are two pleasant bays each side of the small harbour, one a gentle curve of shaded sand the other a small strip of clean pebbles. Good taverns back both beaches and regular excursion leave Vlychadia for the cave at Kefala just along the coast south-west of Vylchadia.
