Pictures of Afytos
Afytos village is located on the hill. The way to the beach without a car is quite long and tiring. But because of Afytos’ high location there are many taverns, cafe and a promenade with a fantastic views. There is a great view towards the beaches of Afytos and accross Sithonia peninsula from the “balcony” of Afytos. Also there are many souvenir shops in Afytos. You will get a pleasure walking around small narrow streets with ancient stones houses. On many of the old and traditional houses you can see the names and a dates of construction.
There are many taverns and cafes along the seaside promenade in Afytos, which is located on the hill. The prices there are higher than usual and these taverns are popular mainly among tourists. We recommend you to visit tavern Sparos – very popular tavern for locals but not known by tourists. It is located near the beach. Don’t be lazy to find it and you will not be dissapointed. The prices are quite acceptable compared with the taverns on the paved balcony of Afytos. But the view is still fantastic: there is the beach and Sithonia on one hand and the whole village of Afytos on the other. We recommend you to order a set of starters (appr. 12 euro) – great opportunity to taste all traditional greek dishes. There is a beach opposite the tavern Sparos with a few tables directly on the beach for romantic couples in the evenings.
Also visit the popular Fortuna bar: duing the day you can enjoy a traditional greek coffee with great view and in the evening music and drinks. There is a fantastic sea view towards Sithonia peninsula from Fortuna bar.
