Stavros beach, located 2 min far drive from Vlamis Villas (1.4km), has a beautifull sandy circular cove, where “Zorba the Greek” was filmed, a movie candidate for Oscar award, starring Anthony Quinn and Alan Bates.
It is a great spot for a relaxed stay next to the shallow water, which is great for children too. It is also pleasantly catered with umbrellas and sun beds. There are a couple of cafeterias and a few taverns with traditional recepies right by the beach, so you can have your meal or coffee enjoying the view.
The setting combines a sandy beach and a rocky mountain. Nearly at the top of the mountain a cave is located, that offers spectacular views of Stavros village. If you are into hiking, just get to Stavros beach and the track of the hikers becomes visible. Follow the track wearing appropriate hike shoes and you will be at the top in about 20 minutes without stops.
Leave Vlamis Villas and at the top of the road take a left turn. As you drive you will see a big green sphere (radar) on your left handed side, pass that and keep driving for 400-500m more, where you take a left turn at a wide road. At the end of this road it’s Stavros beach. Enjoy!
