A pretty long stretch of the seashore east of Paleochora has three pebbly beaches known as Anidri or Giliaskari.
Pebbles of the third, easternmost, beach are very small, which make it very convenient to walk on in contrast to big pebbles on other two beaches. In any case, probably thanks to the pebble floor, the water there is incredibly transparent.
We were there on a very quiet day with almost no wind, so we also played frisbee (there was enough space to not bother anyone with that).
Then we had a few pleasant swims without any waves, so we could easily practice different styles, mostly breaststroke
and front crawl.
Giliaskari beaches are well organized, with cafes, small taverns and outdoor showers – all well integrated with natural surroundings.
And we really enjoyed those outdoor showers in the sun 😎
As it’s a pretty long walk back to the town of Paleochora, it’s not a bad idea to wash the salt off you skin.
As if you couldn’t guess without it 🙂
