Looking at the sea from the village of Agia Pelagia, you’ll see several beaches on your right; one of them is the beach of Lorentzo. Located between Firi Ammos and Kakia Lagada, it is one of the largest beaches on the island, with crystal clear water, sand and pebbles.
In the village Platia Ammos, on the northern part of the island, you can swim and enjoy the view of the Peloponnesian coast and mountains just opposite you. The combination of pebbles and sand beach and the picturesque village surrounding it will make you relax.
Leaving Milopotamos past the junction that leads to the cave of Agia Sophia, after a beautiful ride with a view to the Ionian Sea, you will end up at the beach of Limnionas. Directly opposite the beach are the Panaghia islands, two small islets in front of Limnionas bay and just below the Monastery of Panaghia Mirtidiotissa, which they were named after! In Limnionas you can see the traditional houses used by fishermen for shelter.
