I caught the 11am bus to Eritsos beach from Livadia, about 30min, €1.60 pay as you leave. It is also about a 20 min walk from Megalo Chorio. The length of the beach makes a long and pleasant walk. Stony with lighter shingle at the waterline. Although I had my towel and snorkel the waves were a bit rough when I visited so it wasn’t enticing. Some rough camping seems to be allowed to the left, past a toilet block and rough and ready restaurant working out of a food truck. The beach to the right is more private. Apparently part of the beach at one end is nudist. There was no one around at either end at the end of September (during the pandemic) so you could happily bath in the nude.

Easily accessible by bus from Livadia (the port and main town) and a good alternative to Livadia beach itself - completely different atmosphere - quiet (it was September) and the few campers are in a particular stretch before the nudist part It is sweeping; we got one of the few sunbeds and it was great for swimming; The Eristos Beach Hotel is a bit dated (we did not stay there) but great restaurant for lunch - a great day out

Tuesday 11th June and we visited this long strech of beach which is located 3 kilometres south of Megallo Chorio, on the west coast of the Island, in Eristos Bay. It is possible to walk along a track/pathway from Megalo Chorio to the beach. The local bus also stops here. We parked the car in the parking area at the top end of the beach and went exploring. The beach was almost deserted there were some sunbeds on the beach. However, there were no facilities on the beach. There was a small Taverna a short walk away. There was a sign advising visitors that the sunbeds were available from the Mini Market, which we tried to locate but failed. We thought it might be in the hotel across the road, it was not. The hotel had a large restaurant area that had not yet ready to open for the season. This stretch of beautiful wild beach is a victim of modern times and is strewn with all sorts of bits of plastic, some washed in by the sea and sadly some left by visitors to the beach.

Eristos beach in the bay of the same name faces south and is thus protected from the prevalent northerly winds in summer. From the village of Megalo Chorio the distance is 5km on a tarred road. It is thus one of the most accessible beaches of the island. An advantage is also that quite a few tamarisk trees can offer a bit of shade. Together with Livadia it is the longest beach on the island and also the one with most sand, although of a pretty coarse kind, which I prefer. What surprised me in mid-May is how hot these tiny pebbles here were getting, much more than usual and making it already then quite difficult to walk around barefoot. How must it be in summer. To get into the sea is quite easy, but one has to keep walking for a while in shallow water. Also one has to be careful, since the ground is a mixture of mud ans slippery flat rocks. The sand only appears, when one can hardly stand anymore. The best parts of the beach are to the left and to the right, where the water gets deeper more quickly than in the middle. The tamarisks for shade are further back, where I also saw several sea daffodills, beautiful to watch, when they are in bloom late August and September. Much less attractive were the public toilets, which obviously hadn't been cleaned sine the year before. In summer there are also a bar here as well as a 'Kantina' for drinks and snacks, as I saw from signs. And about 200m furher back is the restaurant 'Tropicana', which was not open yet, when I visited in May. Nudism seemed common around the beach..
