We drove onwards to the tiny island of Elafonisos. Stunning azure blue waters greeted us, as we took the ferry across. A tiny island with a port and shops at one end, then deserted beaches on one side with only sand trails, we headed there in search of some ancient ruins that weren't around anymore. Instead we found a fairly deserted beach with palm frond umbrellas perfect for chilling and watching the crystal waters.
After a light seafood lunch in town, grilled calamari and dips, we headed to the famous Samos beach. It was windy and not that great, so instead we caught the boat back and I spent the remaining light swimming over ruins of the Ancient city of Pavlopetri.
Wish I could’ve dived here, the city walls and houses are visible under the clear blue waters. I could’ve stayed for ages except that the sun was fading and it was getting colder…
We had dinner in Geyfri overlooking the water at a lovely taverna with quite a lot of cats. Not unusual in Greece, however the French tourists at the next table took pity on them feeding them fish scraps. I might've joined in!
