"..long beach and a relaxed nightlife..."
Visitors to Afandou are encouraged to visit the church of Our Lady, which can be found right next to the village's main square. Right there on this square, you will be able to meet many locals, who are very hospitable, and also carry a very characteristic accent. A folklore exhibition can be found in the village, and during summer a small road train connects the village to the beach. The beach of Afandou can be considered huge! It extends to a length of over 3 Kilometers, and offers crystal clear waters. On the far left side of the beach, where the shore ends you will find areas with rocks and caves to explore which will suit the adventurous.
Afandou nightlife is very relaxed, with little more than drinking and people-watching on the open-air terraces of the bars lining the main square. Those in search of more action might head for the nearby rowdy party resort of Faliraki. The resort does have a good selection of traditional Greek tavernas offering both Greek and international cuisine.
The resort is also a magnet for golfers the par 72, Afandou course was designed by Donald Harradine. The course's 18 holes overlooks the sea and is located close to the village.
