In 2022, the tourism year is going great for Greece, writes Deutsche Welle, presenting some proposals made to Germans to know somewhat less touristic areas.
Seitan Ports in Chania
The beach of Stefanos Seitan or Seitan Limania beach in Chania is a beautiful and difficult beach. Of course there are no sunbeds and umbrellas. In Turkish, from where its name comes, it means “cursed beach” because of the sea currents.
Halki is ideal for short trips from Rhodes. Although the island is not green, which the Germans especially love, it is nevertheless picturesque and has beaches with truly crystal clear waters such as Pontamos and Ftenaya.
The green Paxos can undoubtedly become a pole of attraction for more and more German tourists. Among the island’s advantages are undoubtedly the tranquility and the beautiful sunset at Erimitis beach.
Andros is not so well known to Germans, although it is a short boat ride from Athens. The island has a lot of greenery and many hiking trails that Germans love so much. As for its beaches, they are real diamonds.
Nor are as many Germans visiting Naxos as the French, for example. The island of the Cyclades definitely needs a car, to visit Apeiranthos or Filoti. The highest peak of the Cyclades, the “Nose of Za” (Jupiter), as it is known, is also worth a visit, as well as the cave of Zeus.
Vathia in Mani, Laconia, although it is one of the most photographed destinations, does not attract mass tourism. Well-known and beautiful destinations in Mani, Kardamili and Stoupa, as well as the cave of Diros.
Of the Saronic islands, Hydra is the best known to tourists. Less well known are Spetses. The big advantage of the island is that there are almost no cars.
Monemvasia in Laconia is a favorite tourist destination of the Greeks. A beautiful castle town. Its history goes back to the 6th century, when the first inhabitants settled on a rock that had broken away after an earthquake in 375 AD.
Pelion is also a favorite destination for Greeks but not so well known for Germans. The famous Makrinitsa, built in the forest, offers a beautiful view of the Aegean.
