Catching on to the taste
Any fish in today’s catch fit for boiling is more often than not transformed into a delicious soup. The tuna, lobster and crab are the gastronomical attention grabbers. And you definitely won’t put up much resistance to the figs with honey, homemade walnut pie, fouskakia and hamalia.

As for the hinterland, it has to be seen on foot! Pine trees, wild vegetation, chapels, secluded coves and always that view of the endless blue of the sea; it simply can’t get any better!
