Liveros bay

A semi-hidden small pebbly light blue cove, Liveros is lying in the homonymous inlet, approximately 24 kilometers from Katapola, about 19 kilometers from Chora and around 40 kilometers from Aegiali. Once popular - it was used as the main filming location for Luc Besson’s movie, now it is not possible to swim in it due to litter coming from the otherwise scenic wreck of Olympia that lies just offshore. It best accessed by car and then, following the path starting from the main road (a-15 minutes walk). It is also advisable not to wear flip-flops.


Laying nearby the port of Katapola, Plakes got its name from the plethora of stony slabs embedded into the sea floor. For gloriously unspoiled wilderness, nude bathing and deep diving, Plakes rank among the finest beaches in the island. It is accessible either by boat (running regularly in the summer from the port of Katapola), or on foot (walking from Katapola or Maltezi beach).

Agios Panteleimonas

The pebbly beach of Agios Panteleimonas, that is sheltered under the homonymous chapel, is located just a breath away from Katapola. A tiny stretch of fine pebbles with seductive crystal-clear waters amidst reefs capturing the attention of those who love diving. It is accessible on foot straight from Katapola (half an hour hike) or by boat (from Maltezi) and then walking about 5 minutes.
