Chrisi Milia Beach, Alonissos – Nature’s Very Own Masterpiece

August 25, 2015

As I went down the stairs leading to Chrisi Milia beach, I couldn’t help myself but marvel at its beauty. Golden sand covers the beach as far as your eyes can see, the turquoise water which glistens under the sun, the boats bobbing at the horizon, a silhouette of another Greek island farther down, the hill with its trees left standing free and the very calm waters creating a gentle wave as it touches the shore – ah! Magnifique! My description for sure didn’t do justice so here’s a video of Chrissi Milia’s marvelous beauty which you should watch in at least 360p setting. :p

This was the second beach we’ve visited in Alonissos, just like the previous day – we spent the whole afternoon basking under the sun and taking pleasure in the beauty of Chrisi Milia beach. The sea was very calm and shallow. We’ve walked a couple of meters from the shore and the water remained to be just above our knee. It’s the perfect beach for us – or maybe at least for me who’s not a very good swimmer.

There was a taverna at the top of the beach overlooking the whole scenery, this was where the men of the family spent the whole afternoon having a tsipouro.

I’ve had enough of the sun that afternoon and decided to seek shade which was only at the righthand side of the beach covered in pebbles and stones. I laid my beach towel over it and laid down, before I knew it – I dozed off to a light sleep with the cool sea breeze and the sound of the birds chirping above me.

When I woke up, it was time to go – with a heavy heart, I packed my beach bag and headed to the car. As they say, some good things never last.

    It doesn’t matter where you go, Greece is beautiful. We had the opportunity to visit a few islands on the Adriatic and all I can say is, Wow.

    Thank you for linking up to #TheWeeklyPostcard. I might never have found your site otherwise. 😉

    Do you have any favorite Greek dishes?

      It really doesn’t matter where you go in Greece and in the Mediterranean I guess. I love the sea and dramatic sceneries and Greece has it in most places. 🙂

    Thank you for linking up on Travel Tuesday.

    For a moment, I was thinking, didn’t I read this already? Then I realized I was looking at a different beach this afternoon, and this beach didn’t have that cool hole in the mountain. Okay, all these greek beach names are… Greek to me. I absolutely cannot register their names. Though I CAN register their beauty!

      Hahahaha! You’re funny!
      Took me awhile too to get used to the Greek names of the beaches (it all sounded scientific names to me) but I got the hang of it after awhile. :p
