Aside from the hotels that have sprung up along the coast in recent years, Kiotari is little more than a beach. It’s a gentle crescent-shaped strip that stretches the length of this purpose-built resort. Made up of sand and shingle and shelving steadily into the sea, it’s a popular place for families. Rows of sunbeds and parasols are the mainstay in the centre, while at the edges, it’s a little more low-key. In terms of things to do, it’s the watersports that attract the most attention. You’ll find the likes of jet-skiing, windsurfing and parasailing carving wakes across the bay. Back on dry land, because lots of the hotels are All Inclusive, much of the entertainment and dining scene depends on where you’re staying. That said, there’s a handful of laid-back bars and tavernas serving up menus of freshly-netted fish. In terms of exploring the island, make the nearby village of Asklipion your first port of call. With its Byzantine church and Medieval castle ruins, it makes for a good day trip. Plus it’s only about two miles away. Elsewhere, a couple of miles south of Kiotari, there’s Gennadi. It’s a whitewashed village with pin-thin alleys and a decent beach.
