Polychrono is an old village which since a long time has turned into a popular tourist resort appealing many visitors as it gets much alive during summer. Beach is one undisturbed stretch of fine white sand that keeps going for more than 7km. There’s a laid-back feel to the place – the old town is lined by whitewashed houses draped with bougainvillea while a handful of tavernas to try tasty seafood and bars along the coast road. Is surrounded by beautiful nature, with the landscape dominated by the pine forest and olive tree plantations. Polychrono is also known about its pleasant night life. You can will go scuba diving at Polychrono Beach and spot the rare turtles at Lake Mavrobara. The Mavrobara Lake, a site of considerable ecological interest, nearby the village, it was declared as a protected natural monument in 1997 and that is the only wetland hosting both rare species of the Emydidae turtle. There are walking trails around the lake, with natural springs and lush greenery to revitalize yourself.

 The section nearest to town is where you’ll find sunloungers and umbrellas, you can go windsurfing at Hanioti Beach, about 10 minutes down the road. You could head across the other side of the peninsula for quiet Fourka Beach, where fishing boats line the sand. Also the nightlife of Kallithea is 15 minutes up the road – but you don’t have to go anywhere to enjoy the long sandy beach.
