Fínikounda is one of those magical Greek destinations. An original, unspoilt hideaway that remains un-crowded, even in high season. It has a fabulous sandy beach, and a tiny harbour with brightly painted fishing boats.

There are a dozen or so tavernas, most of which serve freshly caught fish and traditional Greek dishes. There are a couple of bars and tourist shops, but this really is a resort to sit back with a good book, leave your worries behind and enjoy the Greek hospitality and slow pace of life.
