Agios Prokopios Beach
A mere five kilometres south of Chora, Agios Prokopios is a heavenly Blue Flag beach, close enough to the town that you could go by bike or on foot.
The beach is a sweep of golden sand, 1.5 kilometres in length, and with crystalline turquoise water that deepens quite quickly but is sheltered from strong winds and currents.
Towards the south things are a bit more built up and there are seafront restaurants and cafes, and large blocks of sun loungers and sunshades.
Further north things quieten down, and here Agios Prokopios is edged by low dunes and three old salt pans.
