Places near Beach
Nissaki means Little Island and hundreds of years ago that is what it was. On top of the island, now stands a Taverna. In years past, the local people worked on this island, shaping stones and local rocks bought to them by boat. The stones were used for building. After many years, the chippings falling into sea formed a ramp and eventually joined the land. Now there is a narrow road that now runs between the old island where the Taverna stands and the mainland. Nissaki has a small beach and is extremely pretty. The beach is a small horseshoe shape with fine pebbles, offering excellent swimming, although it can become a little crowded when daytrip boats arrive for lunch. Nissaki straggles along the coastline and the various bays should not be confused. The beach and tavernas at Nissaki are next along the coast from Barbati and Glyfa and are just below the village centre with its church. The Nissaki Beach Hotel is actually at Krouzeri Beach. This is the ideal resort for people of any age who enjoy quiet surroundings, heavenly views and the feeling of being part of a small and friendly community, and of course there is wonderful sea-bathing and snorkeling. Teenagers may find things a little too quiet in the evenings, but parents can easily rent a car to make livelier Kassiopi and Ipsos accessible, with a choice of evening entertainment.
