In the far northeast reaches of the island, about 2km from the harbor of Karlovassi, you’ll find the scenic Potami Beach, with her large pebble-stones and cold, clear water emanating from the namesake river. Here you will encounter large, forceful waves, especially when the north winds blow, but also her deep waters set against a plush-green backdrop.
Don’t miss out on trekking down the footpath (from Potami Beach) leading to a breathtaking waterfall, quietly hidden amidst a deep-green forest. Once here…Potami Beach and the waterfall…you won’t want to leave…it is that beautiful! Continue down the path for another 2km, and 2 small, picturesque lakes will come into view, where you can take a dip or dive off the many boulders surrounding it.
Potami Beach, set in the heart of nature, invites you for a casual swim. Although this beach is not maintained, it does offer free umbrellas and lounge chairs. You also can enjoy a delicious Greek dish, or a coffee, or a mixed-drink at the small taverna and café-bar located right on her shores.
