Picture for a postcard: three rocks emerging through the sea. Triopetra is actually two beaches, the small and the large Triopetra. The small one is located at the eastern side of the rocks and the larger at the western side. You can find taverns in both beaches; however, the small one is better protected from the western wind. The larger one is equipped with a long beach, unforgettable sunsets and a cave for shadow. Don’t stay here; visit the beaches nearby (Sandhills, Ligkres, Ag. Foteini)
