The popular south coast beaches stand on their own; hotels, restaurants, cafés, and beach bars have sprung up around them drawn to their turquoise seas. It’s the home of Psarou beach, where yachts are always parked in the distance and expensive sun lounge beds are reserved in advance. Platis Gialos is popular with families and has its own little village behind it. But it’s truly known for what the international party crowd loves: the beach bar and club scene that revolves around Paraga, Paradise, and Super Paradise beaches. Agrari and Elia are less developed, have more nudity, and are quieter.
