Discover the island and local culture.

The hotel is built on an actual peninsula between two coves and offers stunning panoramic views of the sea.

The peninsula is located on the outskirts of a small fish town, Agia Pelagia, which is a short 15min walk from the hotel. In the town, you will find numerous shops, bars, taverns and cafes. Below we have rounded up a few nearby attractions and activities that are worth exploring:
