Asterousia beaches



Krigi beach
(138 votes)

West of Platia Peramata village we meet the small settlement called Krigioi, full of illegally built houses and cottages. A short drive along the local stream ends on the beautiful beach with fine pebble and crystal clear water. What makes Krigi special are the numerous tiny beaches formed along the coast to Platia Peramata and the amazing soft limestone formations.

West of the tiny chapel of Saint Demetrius overlooking Krigi, there is another pebbly remote beach called Aspros Harakas (white rock) ,named after the whitish rocks at the west end.  Aspros Harakas is not something special as it's only accessible by boat, has large stone and shade is absent.

Some more meters on the west you'll find the three consecutive beaches of Kokkines Plakes (i.e. Red Rocks), named after the reddish rocks around and is accessed mainly through sea.
