Afrata beach – Peninsula Rodopou

Tucked away at the exit of a canyon

lies the small Afrata beach. Small is beautiful!

Two taverns, Tamarisk trees, chairs and umbrellas, the pebble beach and especially the crystal clear water promise carefree swimming pleasure at Afrata beach.

Afrata beach - Peninsula Rodopou

Since the bay is really quite small, it might be better to avoid the weekends where of course many locals visit this idyllic place.

The beach is well signposted from the village Afrata, from where it is about 700 m by paved road through a canyon to the bay.
