Beach
Backed by an enormous cliff, Porto Katsiki sits on a sheltered beach near Athani village. The name means goat port; legend says that only goats could reach the beach at one point. Now you can park on the cliff above the beach and take the stairwell down to sea level. Grab a drink or a bite to eat in one of the bars and canteens at the top of the stairs before you depart.

  • There is no way to describe or photograph this beach to do it the justice it deserves. The natural beauty surpasses anything I've witnessed yet. You don't want to miss this beach.  more »
  • I recommend everyone to go there,but not at the busy times of the day,because everyone goes there since is once of most popular beaches.  more »
  • Porto Katsiki is worth - but only in low season for us even after many years and many visits is still a trip. To illustrate the dimensions: maybe 100 people have on the beach, at 200, it is already uncomfortable. In the months of July and August vehicles at the parking lot are however from 12: 00 noon around 1000 and's large tourist ships arriving every hour space for 500 people. Each sardine can waltz in their box against it. So - please avoid in high season! Best time to travel: middle of may until the beginning of July and then again from the first week of September in the November. We had the Bay often even for us all by yourself! This is really an indescribable experience. And note: there is a pebble beach, a sandy beach. Sensitive people should bring slippers.
