Merikounta is located at the SW part of the island, near Mesta village. It is a beautiful beach with thick sand and very small pebbles that spreads out to become one with the deep, crystal waters. North winds search the bay and therefore it’s better not to visit the beach when north winds set in. The name derives from the ancient Greek word "Myrikin" that means Myrica, a bush common to places near the seashore.
Avlonia is a beautiful wild scenery and a sandy beach surrounded by trees next to Trahilia. To go there, one follows the same road and turns right on the first perpendicular road. Avlonia is an enclosed bay. The surrounding landscape is very quiet and still preserves its naturalness, since there is nothing reminiscent of human civilization. The sea is very clean and, especially in the summer, always calm.
Few steps from the beach is a tiny cantina where you can enjoy a selection of refreshments and snacks.
