Beach
“Beautiful beaches in the area! Faros (lighthouse) is one that you must visit! You will need to have your own umbrella, water and something to eat if you intend to stay long, as there is nothing in the area. You also have to walk a bit, after leaving your car at the free parking space. Aegeopelagitika is also a great beach! You can find several beach bars there, but also many more quiet spots, as the beach is very long. Posidi village also has beautiful taverns for seafood or meat.”

“Ο ναός, που αποτελεί το αρχαιότερο ιερό του Ποσειδώνα, βρίσκεται στο Ποσείδι, στην περιοχή που κατά την αρχαιότητα ονομαζόταν αρχαία Μένδη. Ο ναός λειτουργούσε για περισσότερα από 1000 χρόνια, και υπάρχουν αναφορές σε αυτόν ακόμα από τον Θουκυδίδη και σε αγιορείτικα έγγραφα του 14ου αιώνα. Πιθανότατα κτίστηκε από τους Ερετριείς, οι οποίοι αποίκησαν τη Μένδη και είχαν προστάτη τους τον Ποσειδώνα. Οι ανασκαφές έφεραν στο φως τέσσερα μεγάλα κτίρια: τον κυρίως ναό, δύο κτίρια εκατέρωθεν του ναού και ένα αψιδωτό κτίσμα στο ανατολικό μέρος αυτού. Το τελευταίο, που είναι και το αρχαιότερο, χρονολογείται από την πρωτογεωμετρική περίοδο (11ος-10ος αι. π.Χ.). Το δάπεδό του είναι πήλινο και οι τοίχοι”

“Possidi lighthouse beach, the most amazing crystal waters on a sandy beach. Great for snorkeling. A bit of walking to the beach, but well worth it! Make sure to take some beautiful pictures of the lighthouse, but you can't walk close to it since it's on an army base.”
