The impressive bay with the calm waters in deep blue colour is one of the greatest and most cosmopolitan places in the island, as in July and August it gets full of sailing boats and yachts. The current picture, as opposed to the past, when the beach with the two little taverns could be accessed only by caique from Kamares, gives a positive example of tourist growth. A luxurious resort, which respected the natural landscape and integrated taverns, cafés, simple houses as well as villas with Cycladic architecture, rooms to let and the wonderful coastal chapel of Taxiarches –they all co-exist in Vathy harmoneously.
It is a resort which is preferred by families, couples or groups of friends. There almost everyone knows everyone –since they are permanent vacationers– the children play on the beach until late in the evening and the elderly go to the taverns and at the little houses with their yards right next to the sea. Jogging and cycling is in the… agenda.
The church of Taxiarches (16th century) celebrates with a festival in July, September and November.
