In the capital city of Myrina, you’ll find 3 local beaches, one of which is called Tourkikos Gialos. Located in the heart of the city’s two ports, it carries a historical name from the Ottoman Period, when the island and region was still under occupation. Don’t be dismayed by its close proximity to the harbors, this beach has soft, fine sand and the waters are clean and crystal-clear.
The beach is organized in a tourist-minded fashion and is easily accessible from anywhere in Myrina…just a few minutes’ walk. After taking a swim, visit one of the several tavernas and restaurants lining the shore and port. While taking a stroll around the beach, take a moment and admire the small, traditional fishing boats that are docked in the harbor, and finally, the best spectacle from Turkish Shores is the evening sunset…. a small miracle you can’t afford to miss!
