Erateini, Trizonia and beach
With fresh fish and seafood and swimming at an adjacent beach, time passes slowly, especially on summer afternoons. Erateini is famous for its fish taverns and ouzo bars, but also for its proximity to beaches. All of the seafront from Galaxidi to Nafpaktos is relatively unknown as a tourist destination, even though it conceals unique beaches, picturesque settlements, and traditional mountain villages on the slopes above the sea.
The only inhabited island in the Corinthian Gulf, Trizonia, is very close to the north coast: visitors reach it in just 10 minutes, traveling by boat from Chania. The boat service is quite frequent, and the island is small enough that a vehicle is not required there. Next to blue is green, next to sand are pebbles, next to flowering lemon trees are whitewashed houses. Trizonia has a large number of hotels, as well as restaurants that specialize in fish and seafood.
