Vathi is an idyllic Journey for you if you are looking for destination for anyone seeking for the absolute relaxation. The beach spreads at the end of a tiny gorge, and borders with long cliffs. The circular curve in a coastline, of the bay covers it from the open sea, making Vathi a natural refuge. A Greek myth reports that Vathi was used by pirates to hide away. The waters on the beach are almost always calm, despite the neighbor hooding beaches that can be wavy. The only wind that reaches this coastline is this one coming from southwest.
