Before or after a visit to the Cave of Olympoi, take a look to Agia Dynami Beach. The Beach takes its name from the monastery Agia Dynami witch dominates the hill on the south side of the bay. This is a beautyful place for a swim in two little pebbled coves, you may enjoy the white sand and the stunning turquoise hue. A visit to Agia Dynami Beach is a truly atmospheric experience.
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.
