The shoreline at Therma, named after the popular hot springs located there, is adjacent to the city of Agios Kyrikos, sheltered by a leeward bay.  The hot springs emanate from a series of small lakes and lagoons that dot the beach and shoreline, which essentially consist of raw, earthen resources, and is thought to have healing properties. 

The main source for the hot springs is called Loumakia. This amazing, geologic feature of Therma has made it an important health center on the island….for local residents and visitors alike.  After your day at the beach and hot springs, you will find many restaurants and cafes to continue your stay at Therma.

In the village of Lefkada, found in the southeastern part of the Ikaria island, you’ll discover a small, yet beautiful beach….accessed only via a short distance down an unpaved road.  What is unique about Lefkada is the hot water from a local spring that flows to the beach and into the sea.  Like so many of our other featured beaches, Lefkada too is an ideal spot for a quiet, relaxing swim or time on the sand.  The specially-designed facilities around the therapeutic hot springs attract huge crowds annually.  Also, be sure to tour the nearby Monastery of the Annunciation…it is well worth the visit!

If you’re in need of some “peace & quiet”, a relaxing swim or a hassle-free time on the beach, then Kyparissi is the ideal place.  This beach is less than a kilometer from the village of Evdilos and accessing the shoreline from the main road is quite easy.  The sandy beach and pristine, clear waters, ever-green landscape and the harmonious sounds of nature complete this amazing mosaic of beauty. 

If you are looking for snack bars, cantinas and umbrellas…you’ve come to the wrong place!  You won’t find any amenities or facilities at Kyparissi Beach, so bring your own bottled water and snacks.  This place is far, far from the popular, touristy spots around the island, but here you can discover hidden treasures of Mother Nature, like the small cave amongst the shoreline rocks.

Among the prettiest shorelines of Ikaria is the ever-popular Nas Beach.  In what can seem like a magical landscape, Nas is located near the village of Armenistis, the point where the river Halaris empties into the sea. This sand and pebble beach is surrounded by lush, green plant life, waterfalls and springs that give it an unusal backdrop and picturesque aura…..altogether nicely complementing the ancient temple (ruins) of the Goddess Artemis, which you’ll see at the far end of the beach.

To take a dip here though, you must first go down a few steps…at the base of which, this magical scene will unfold before your very eyes!  The beach also leads you to the Tour of Ridges; walk down a trail that by far is the most scenic on Ikaria

There is also a spot down here for nude bathing.  After getting some “R & R” at Nas Beach, get a taste of some of the local favors, while taking in the spectacular view of Halari Gorge, at one of the many tavernas that literally overhang the cliffs towering above the gorge below.  Don’t forget to experience the amazing sunset here as well, a sight you won’t soon forget.  Finally, at Nas Beach lodging, facilities and other tourist amenities are available to make your stay comfortable and convenient.

This small beach in the village of Kerame sits on the northern coastline of the island, very close to Evdilo.  Here is the perfect spot for a quiet and peaceful swim….not well-maintained and with no amenities….but the “away from reality” quality it has makes it very attractive to many people!  Just imagine a place with a smooth sand and white pebble beach, crystal-clear waters, plush-green trees that almost touch the shoreline providing a natural canopy of shade and comfort not found anywhere else….well, here it is, Kerame Beach. 

In addition, the rocky seabed is ideal for any spear fishing fans.  Although Kerame is made for those looking to get away from it all, close by you’ll have access to tourist-developed areas and cosmopolitan beaches….just another incentive to check out this little corner of paradise!
