Iraklia Alimia and Merihas

Iraklia - Alimia and Merihas

We suggest you meet these unique beaches by boat. Alimia, with its crystal-clear and always cool waters, is ideal for observing the sea bed, since this is the place where a wreckage of a German hydroplane lies as it was sunken during the 2nd World War. So, take a diving mask with you! The beach is sandy and pebbled. There is access on foot via a shortcut starting at the path towards the cave of Agios Ioannis. Merihas bay is pebbled and is considered to be the most impressive beach of the island, since it is framed by vertical cliffs that rise over 100m high. It constitutes an ideal place for bird-watching, since rare birds nest there, and it is also a haven when eastern, north-eastern and north winds blow.
