About Agathi Beach
It was named after the small 14th – 15th century cave chapel Agia Agathi ( in english Saint Agatha ) on the left side of the beach.
The terrain concists mainly from golden color sand – that is why it is also known as Golden Sand Beach – and a few small rocks.
There are lot of sunbeds and umbrellas, but if you don’t like to pay there is space for your towel mainly on the right.
On the left side of the beach near the small church you can rest and enjoy the view under the shade of a few trees. There is a cave also to explore.
You can combine this beach with a visit to Feraklos Castle.
