Fodor's Review

If what you are looking for is the ideal combination of a scenic landscape with facilities like water sports, nice refreshments and light meals, and sunbeds and umbrellas, then the world-renowned, picture-perfect beach of Koukounaries is the place for you. Some call it "Golden Coast," after its fine, sparkling golden sand, but in high season, when boatloads of tourists land there you'll be lucky to find a free patch to sit on. This beautiful beach owes its name to the interesting surrounding forest of umbrella pines, which are almost watered by the waves. Enjoy a leisurely stroll behind the beach to Strofilia Lake, an impressive biotope where rare species of birds find shelter. Amenities: food and drink; lifeguard; parking (free); showers; toilets; water sports. Best For: partiers; snorkeling; sunrise; swimming; walking.
