A little before reaching the St. Theodore lighthouse in Argostoli, one encounters a gold-sand beach with shallow waters. A small, quiet sandy beach close to Argostoli, featuring fine golden sand and warm shallow waters, suitable for children. The waters are always warm and it is the ideal choice if you want to go for a quick dip, since it is located very close to Argostoli.
Just down the road is Katavothres, a world-wide known geological phenomenon. Conveniently situated inside the confines of the capital and across from an organized camping site, this spot is a favorite for many.
