Beaches & Fishing Locations
Annotated Map of the beaches around Aigeira
In general the coast along bay of Aigeira / Akrata consists mostly of pebbles, sand, or the mix of both.
Paralia Akratas is mainly pebbles and it is deeper. The seabed is without obstructions for the most part except along the central square where there are points of sharp depth drops caused from rockslide.
The beach in Aigeira is a more variable mix of sand, smaller pebbles, and depending on the weather (mainly wind) exposed rounded rocks.
For best results in Aigeira try your luck away for the center, nearer River Krios or even better at the rocks close to the fishing port of Mavra Litharia where things get much more interesting.
