Grikos is a small settlement that used to have only a few houses but evolved after the 50s. After 1960 the Greek Tourism Organization bought large areas at Grikos and built a Xenia hotel that operated in 1970, giving life to the whole area. Grikos has touristic facilities, a small port for boats and sailboats, as well as a tavern. The road leads to a peninsula called “tou Nisyriou”, with a small square on the back side. The settlement of Petra is located next to Grikos, built in a beautiful gulf that leads to the Petra of Kallikatsou. There you can find hotels, apartments to let and taverns in the sandy beach.
