Tigania beach is just north of Kriaritsi and embraces several small coves hidden among the rocks much to the fashion of the popular Orange beach. This is a Greek beach as most of the cars parked here can tell you. Those who come here have managed to set up a favorite little nudist scene. There are many tents on the beach as free campers stake their claim to a piece of paradise. With a few small islands off shore and Mount Athos clearly on the horizon they help to decorate this already glistening gem.
Until recently there has been no development on Tigania beach and then somebody put up a beach and snack bar. Just to sit on one of these bar stools with a frosty beer in hand, looking down over the beach and its blue-green water is about as close to Shangri-La as your will ever get. A few sun-beds and umbrellas are rented at the bar.
The beaches have powdery sand and so does the shallow sea-bottom. Just be aware that there are large rocks in the water but these can be managed. The water is calm and protected from waves. Good snorkeling can be found around the rocks but be aware of sea urchins that grow on the rocks.
What’s great about Tigania Beach
Calm bays with no crowds, perfect for get wet and then back to tanning. Enjoy the frosty beer along with amazing view from the beach bar.
And what’s not…
Difficult to find and to find parking. Watch out for sea urchins if you snorkel around the rocks.
Either from the north along the coastal road from Sykia beach you pass the three beaches on the north side of the peninsula and come to Klimataria beach. You reach an intersection, left goes to Klimataria, take the next exit also going left. There are signs for Tigania beach. Follow the road for a few hundred meters and you will reach this beach.
Be aware that parking can be difficult, some get stuck so be cautious about how far down you are willing to drive, it may be wiser to park higher up and walk down.
