Just before you hit Kathisma, by the little village Agios Nikitas, there is a nice view from the top of the mountain over a long stretch of the coast. We stopped to take some photos, as the sea here is incredibly blue, green and turquoise. This was always my favourite spot when I did the "Around the island"-excursion when I was a rep. Just look at these colours:
Kathisma was as beautiful as ever, although where there used to be only one restaurant - now there are three rows of sunbeds and umbrellas, some rastafari guys selling bracelets, sunglasses and other gadgets and offering to do hair braids on the beach; multiple restaurants and even a couple of beach bar hangouts blaring out loud music.
We stuck to our daily 'horiatiki', and some 'calamares' (= fried squid). Super yum!
The kids were initially not all impressed with the stoney beach, as it hurt their feet. But they quickly made up a fun game burying each other under huge piles of gravel.
Only a few days into the holiday and we all got a nice tan! We did sunbathe responsibly though, we actually managed to use up one and a half bottle of sunscreen during the week!
In the evening the kids decided to use some of the pocketmoney Nathan had given them. Linnea bought herself a new backpack, and Lucas some cool sunnies.
