Anthimou beach is part of the Elia coast south of Nikiti and is rated as the Elia ‘Blue Flag’ beach. At this point the beach turns into a beautiful sheltered bay and becomes wide. A 5-star hotel is located at this beach and develops it, but the northern part of the beach remain undeveloped.
The beach is developed with sun-beds and umbrellas, a beach bar, restaurant and even a swimming pool with spa facilities.
The beach is sand and the water is very shallow so you can walk far out on the soft sandy sea bottom. This is a good family beach. Because of the protection of the bay the water is very calm like a swimming pool. Good snorkeling can be found around the rocks.
What’s great about Anthimou BeachBeautiful setting in the bay. Great sunsets. Good for families.
And what’s not…The beach in front of the hotel is overly developed and crowded. The rest of the beach lacks facilities.
Driving south of Nikiti about 12 km you will see the sign for Anthemus Sea resort. If you are not a guest at the hotel, drive past the hotel until you reach the beach and park alongside the road.
