Our beaches are primarily pebbled. Thus, you will be able to relax on a clean, sand-free beach and enjoy the benefits of a natural reflexology session as you walk barefoot on the pebbles. Given that the water from the mountain springs flows into the sea, the water at our beaches is cool. However, you will also be able to find beaches with normal or warm waters, if you prefer. Following a swim in the 100km coasts of the Delphic land, you will soon see the results of the body's natural rejuvenation.
