Christou Pigadi means Christ's Well and took its name beacuse there is water springing from a rock at the beach. In fact there are two adjacent beaches at the area; a long one and a smaller one, both sandy and of unique natural beauty. As for facilities, there is a canteen offering all you need for a comfortable day on the beach, and sunbeds and umbrellas availaible for rent. It is reachable by taking the road to the airport and turning left on a dirt road following the signs.
The well organized beach of Megali (“big”) Ammoope, or Votsalakia (“fine pebbles”), as it is better known due to the fine pebbles, is the most popular beach of the island, for all ages of visitors. It is situated at a distance of 6 kilometers southern to Pigadia, in front of the homonymous settlement.
Take the road to Amoopi and before you get there a dirt road, in good condition, to your right will lead you to Fokia (there is a sign). A small quiet beach awaits you with shallow waters, large pebbles, little shade, boats moored at the edge and a new hotel where you will find water and anything else you may need as there is also a snack bar.
