Kayia beach – Skala Sykaminia

Kayia beach is one of the best beaches in the island. It is on the other side of Skala Sykaminia village and can be accessed either by car, if you take a right turn right before you enter the village coming from Sykamia or by following a rocky donkey path which starts after the end of the picturesque harbor.

Kayia is a beach with reddish pebbles on the shore and sandy seabed. On the absence of wind the color of the water is very attractive and clear crystal.

There are plenty of trees (armyrikia that grow on salty waters) that create natural shadow. The last 15 years there are three fish taverns operating during the touristic period near the beach. They have direct access to the beach and offer nice food (local appetizers, fish) and view to the sea.

For those who stay in Molyvos there is a travel agency at the Hotel Seahorse in the Harbour of Molyvos that offers excursions on their boat to Skala Sikaminias and Kayia. The departure is in the morning and return in the evening. Tourists can have a 45 minute boat trip, reach Skala Sykamia, swim at kayia and enjoy lunch either at the village (in the picturesque harbor) or near kayia beach. We highly recommend this daily excursion to Skala Sykaminia preferably not on Sundays because locals crowd the area.
