The Sporades Sights

Ayia Eleni and Krasa

  • Beach–Sight

Updated 09/03/2014

Fodor's Review

Around the island's western tip are Ayia Eleni and Krasa, facing the nearby Pelion peninsula. The beaches are also known as Big and Little Banana, perhaps because sun worshippers—mainly gay men on Little Banana—often peel their clothes off. Rocky coves provide some privacy. Amenities: food and drink; parking (free); showers; toilets; water sports. Best For: partiers; nudists; sunset; swimming.
