The sandy beach of Grikos looks more like a lake because there is
the island of Tragonisi in front of it and there are also two small
peninsulas on the side. The Petra location is enchanting. Two of the
best beaches on the island, Diakofti and Psili Ammos, are in the
Southwest, 30 minutes walk from Diakofti.
The extensive beach of Kambos is among the best of the island. To
the Northwest lies a beach called Livadi Tou Pothitou. In the
vicinity you can visit the beaches of Apollo, Livadi Kalogiron, Vaya
and Lefkes. The Lambi seaside, 2.5 kilometers northeast, is famous
for its variegated pebbles. Other pebbled beaches are Aghios
Nicholas and Mersini in the Northwest. Small beaches can be found on
the little islands Chiliomodi, Aghios Georgios and Kendronisi.
You can swim in Aghios Theologos, the port of Scala as well as in
the sandy beaches of Meloi, within 2 km distance and Agriolivado, 3
km northeast. Aspri, a small sandy beach, and Merikas are also
within a small distance from Scala.
