Beaches of Vassilikos
Marele avantaj daca ai ales locatia Vassilikos este că puteți să înotați în fiecare zi pe o plajă diferită! Începeți să vizitați Kaminia și apoi Porto Zoro (Porto Azzuro), Ionio, Banana, Sf. Nicolae, Porto Roma, Gerakas și minunata plaja de la Daphni.
Plaje minunate, de aur, cu ape clare și puțin adânci, ideale atât pentru adulți, cât și pentru copii, având multe opțiuni cum ar fi dușuri, șezlonguri de închiriat, scufundări, schi nautic, ringo, biciclete de mare etc. Nu este permisă la unele dintre plaje, pentru a proteja broasca țestoasă Caretta.
Timpul de reproducere a țestoaselor coincide cu vacanțele de vară. În timpul lunilor iulie și august, țestoasele de sex feminin vin pe țărm pentru a-și îngropa ouăle aproximativ 50 cm în nisip. Nisipul cald provoacă ouăle să eclozeze, iar puii testoaselor apar 8 săptămâni mai târziu, îndreptându-se imediat spre marea luminată de lună.
