After enjoying a leisurely breakfast at our hotel with a lovely view of the beach below, we set off to visit the nearby Psarou Beach at the suggestion of the hotel staff.
The walk was steep but pleasant, offering sweeping views of the blue water and the white houses dotting the hillside.
Like most of the beaches we’ve seen in Greece, Psarou had umbrellas and lounge chairs available for rent and was also lined with open-air restaurants. We had a delicious seafood lunch right on the water.
After exploring the beach for a bit, we caught the local bus into the town center. The area is full of winding alleyways and whitewashed buildings housing boutiques, souvenir shops and cafes.
Little Venice, the area right along the water, is especially charming, with its many jewelry shops and sea views.
We arrived in Little Venice just as the sun was starting to set. The light on the iconic windmills was beautiful.
Even though the wind was quite strong, the small crowd that gathered to watch the sun go down was in very high spirits. The high winds also made for choppy water, which added to the drama of the fading light.
