Mandra beach

When we want to escape from everyone, for some reason we are especially drawn to the sea. And preferably on a quiet, remote beach, where there is no people. Such an environment disposes to melancholy and spiritual transformation. By the way, couples in love also want silence and solitude, but for another reason. Whatever caused the desire to get to the wild, but clean and beautiful beach, Mandra beach in Eastern Macedonia will help you do it.

Beach description

This beach is literally "torn" from the paws of civilization and is located on a virgin coastal zone in the area of the lagoons of Lafroy and Lafruda. The nearest settlement in its vicinity is a village with the same name at a distance of 6 km away. However, the main income of local residents is derived from fishing and tourism, no industrial facilities are observed nearby. This is an additional plus for the beach if you consider the ecological aspect of recreation.

The nearest city to Mandra beach is Xanfy, situated at 25 km away! Therefore, the transport connection on this site is developed poorly- you can only get to the beach by a rented car or taxi. There are no bus routes here. That's why this beach is so poor crowded.

Although the latter circumstances can be explained by the fact that the coastal zone is stretched by 3 km in length and 30 m in width. Such "dimensions" served as an excellent prerequisite for the development of a camping zone in this place- a rare phenomenon for Mediterranean beaches, usually built up with luxurious villas and luxury hotels.

The beach itself is sandy and smooth-faced. There is a gentle descent into the water- without surprises in the form of sharp breaks or hidden boulders. The water is blue and transparent. The cleanness of the beach marked with blue flag.

Since the beach is located not in the bay, but on an open land area not fenced by mountains, the waves are almost always there, but even and not large.

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.

Only the eastern edge of the beach is equipped, the rest of its area is the wild coast, but suitable for swimming. In the camping area, you can rent a tent or a mobile home, so even those who have not taken their own tour package can live as a “savage”.

On the campsite there are:

  • beach bar;
  • tavern;
  • kitchen.

There are electricity and hot water available at any time of the day or night. However, please keep in mind that camping is not free of charge. If you do not want to pay for a vacation by the sea, there is enough space for everyone: go away from other tourists and do whatever you want. You can play beach volleyball, you can have a picnic - whatever your heart desires. It is important not to leave trash behind you - after you, tourists will also come to enjoy the cleanliness of the Blue Flag beach.

Also on the beach you can rent sunbeds and parasols. If you arrived for a few hours, you won’t need tents, but you should worry about sun protection.

To be as close to the beach as possible you can rent a room in Petrinos Lofos.
