General information

The beach of Kolymbia is a beautiful beach with shallow waters, very well organised, not as crowded as Faliraki, the neighbouring beach, perfect for families with kids and for couples.

There are many hotels in the area, but the resort still keeps a relaxing vibe and is pretty quiet even in summer.

The two kilometres long and straight road bordered by eucalyptus trees opens into the Afandou bay and into two narrow but extremely beautiful gravel-sand beaches.

The two beaches from the area, one on the north side and the other on the southern part of the rocky cape Vagia are perfect for bathing.

Between these two beaches, the most scenic one is located on the left side of the harbour and it is margined by white rocks.

The other beach is not that spectacular but it is larger and longer, ideal for relaxing in the sun and bathing in the shallow waters.

Even if the morning and the evening the temperature is still lower ( around 16 degrees Celsius), the weather is just perfect for exploring and laying on the beach.

For those of you looking to take a swim in the sea, the 19 degrees of the water temperature might seem too less for some of you.

I personally felt cold when I entered the water, but the sun was just ideal for perfecting my tan without causing me sunburns.

Anyhow, I strongly recommend you to use a sun cream with sun protection, especially if you stay in the sun during midday because the radiations can harm your body.
