Furthermore, beautiful sandy or pebbly beaches are situated along the coastline, and one could alternatively go for swimming in the sea, which is a 10 min. drive away. The main beach of Anavyssos is a center for windsurfing and other sea activities, but if one wants a peaceful swim, going a little further down the coastline, would be advisable.
