One of the most renowned beaches on the island with the best reviews from the locals is this of Kaminakia. Visiting this beach is one of the must-do activities in Astypalaia. It is accessible by car. It is a 30-minute drive from Chora on a dirt road. It is also accessible by boat from Pera Yalos. On the way before Vatses you will reach a fork where you should follow the signs in order to reach the beach.
In Kaminakia you will find two traditional taverns, lounge chairs and plenty of trees that create natural shade. The beach is quite long and mostly sandy, and the waters are deep and crystal clear. The beach is protected by the weather conditions – so, plan your excursions accordingly!
