  • RV / Camper Accessibility:
    Site suitable for parking for the day, but not for camping
  • Water Sports
    Lots of water sports choices
  • Snorkeling:
    Good snorkeling site only at the rocks at the south and north ends
  • Notes: Very nice beach which is developing rapidly. Many hotels and homes have been built during the last few years. It can be crowded during the peek months of the summer.

    A very nice touch is that the sun beds and parasols are provided free of charge by the bar and cafe owners in hopes that bathers would prefer their store when they decide to drink something. They will bring your order right at the beach. It's a popular swimming spot with young Greeks who appreciate bars and cafeterias with loud music right on the beach. But luckily, Vrahos beach is wide and long enough to allow for many quiet spots between the parasol forests.

    But Vrahos is quickly becoming victim of it's own beauty. Many low-end hotels have been built recently right on the beach with no provision for infrastructure upgrades. As a result, the narrow road becomes a quagmire during the summer, and driving through town should be avoided at all cost during the summer.

RATING SCALE

5 = the sea water was some the best for swimming. We would go way out of our way to swim there again
4 = sea water was excellent and inviting for swimming. We would go out of our way to swim there again
3 = very nice and clean sea. We would go swimming there again if we were in the area
2 = nice sea, we had a nice swim but we did not notice anything special about the water
1 = the sea water was not very inviting at the time we visited. We did more sunbathing than swimming
0 = the water did not seem suitable for swimming

Note that these are our simple (and unscientific) observations based on our subjective experience during our visit. We enjoy the water when it is crystal clear, and cool instead of warm. We don' like visible floating particles of any kind or algae settled on the beach.
