Alaties beach

this beach is also called "Salty", as its name comes from the salt that can be seen in the recesses of the surrounding rocks. It is located in the northern part of the island, ten kilometers from Fiskardo. Here you can not only swim in the crystal clear gentle sea and soak up the hot snow-white sand but also take salt baths in natural mini-pools hidden in coastal rocks.

Beach description

the beach is very picturesque and reminiscent of the Martian landscape, while the underwater world is rich and diverse. Here you will find an occupation of your soul and divers, and snorkeling swimmers and divers-extremes fans. Alaties is the ideal place for family picnic or active beach activities in a large company.

There is no shower on the beach, only a washbasin in the toilet tavern located nearby. So it makes sense to take fresh water with you to rinse off after the salt baths. The umbrellas and mats will also have to be taken care of by themselves. Another minus is a fairly strong current around the beach, so long-distance swim lovers should be as careful as possible.

From the small fishing village of Maganos, you will have to turn right and go down toward the sea along the picturesque mountain serpentine. At the end of the road there will be a parking lot, from which stone steps lead to the beach.

When is the best time to go?

Greece - a country with a long length from north to south, so the recommendations will vary depending on the place where you are going. The holiday season  begins in May and reaches a peak in July-August: there are too many tourists, and the temperature on the southern islands reaches 40 degrees, which may still not play a role on the beach, but certainly not suitable for sightseeing. So the best time to relax in Greece is the end of spring-beginning of summer or September-October.
