For fire safety, no candles, incense or anything else that might require open flames.   The surrounding area is dry and fire is a danger.  With supervision from retreat staff, it is possible to build a fire in the barbeque area or on the beach in the evening, but extreme care is needed and supervision required.

 

 

Outdoor & Adventure

In addition to your swimsuit, you may want to bring a snorkel, mask and fins to enjoy the clear waters where you can spot fish and seaweed.  For hiking you may want some hiking boots and long pants to give you protection from brush as well as a sun hat.  For extended hours in the sun, you may want some sun skins.  At the private rocky seaside, some water shoes can help.

Day Trips

We can take a day trip to a delightful fresh water oasis – Platanistos – about an hour’s drive that offers delicious fresh water pools and cool streams for mini dives and communing with a lush green environment.

Art & Culture

The nearby town of Karistos has regular open air concerts.

Cantina at Beach and Restaurants Nearby
