(2 votes)

The beach of Kapsali (or Peristerionas, meaning the Pigeon or Dove) is close to a Cape of the same name (Peristerionas): between Keratokampos and Arvi. Isolated and without development, it is sandy, with also rocks and blue waters – it remains undiscovered by the hoi.

You will find no rent-rooms or hotels nearby: Keratokampos is the nearest seaside settlement that can supply all your needs.

To get here, you must go the village of Kapsali, which is located a few kilometers east of Keratokampos. From Kapsali sets out a dirt-road which leads to Cape Peristerionas. There you will leave your vehicle and continue on foot to the beach.
