A mere 15 km from the bustling capital is the village of Afantou. Despite the level of tourism, the residents have retained their customs and traditions and are particularly welcoming to visitors. The village has managed to retain its charm with buildings in keeping with local architectural tradition. The surrounding area is characterised by its lush vegetation and the great beaches.

The nearby fine pebble and sand beach of Afantou stretches for 4 km. As the water deepens not far out from the shore, the beach is relatively quiet and as there are usually not many bathers it is ideally suited for games such as beach volleyball and beach soccer. Within walking distance there is also a good golf course. At the end of the day, head to one of the snack bars for a cool, refreshing drink.
