A beautiful beach, accessible to only a few due to the lack of road network.
Naftiko Beach is one of the beaches in the area that requires either a boat or a willingness to walk a considerable distance in order to get to it.
However, if you don’t mind the kilometers, the beauty of the beach and the tranquility it offers are definitely worth it.
The only other beachgoers you might come across are some cows that also come down to enjoy their summer swim.
Fortunately, for those who don’t enjoy long walks, this year there is a boat available from the port of Kymi that you can rent to take you to Naftiko Beach and other difficult-to-reach beaches.
Route: Asphalt road until here, then a 5-kilometer hike to get there and another 5 kilometers to return.
From Athens: 144km – 2hrs 26min
From Chalkida: 66km – 1hr 27min
Food: Bring your own food. However, when you return to your car, you can go to the beach of Metochi and enjoy not only the fantastic journey but also have a great meal at the two taverns there.
Toilet: In nature
