Ladies and gentlemen, can we just all take a moment to marvel at that picture-perfect view of Leftos Gialos Beach in Alonissos? A big round of applause will also do and probably a standing ovation too. I think my camera captured its beauty with such precision that it was close to perfection, yes? I don’t agree on that too because that photo right there isn’t even close in portraying the perfection that Leftos Gialos beach is made of.
Leftos Gialos beach is the kind of beach which will make you say “Ah! That’s what I’m talking about!” as soon as you lay eyes on it. The clear, blue sea with pebbled shore is one thing but the whole atmosphere of it all is what made me decide that it’s my favorite amongst all the beaches in Alonissos. Both sides of the beach has a range of small hills which forms a cove around it – the reason why the water was very calm. Sunbeds are abundant however when we arrived, there was a cruise ferry docked with most of its passengers occupying the sunbeds. Not a problem though because as soon as the ferry left, the beach was almost empty. Almost. It has two tavernas which operates until late at night and to be honest, it does look like a great place to hangout in the evenings which I wish we’ve done.
One of the tavernas has a small pool where The Greek Mister’s 7-year old niece spent the whole afternoon. It’s free to be used by anyone but of course, we had to order something from the taverna itself – not that we weren’t planning on doing so.
Another great day at the beach spent with the Greek family and I have to say that Leftos Gialos beach itself made it even more special.
Pin it for later:
