Two and a Half Minutes at Kolona (Colona) Beach Bar in Batsi, Andros Island, Greece

Tagged: , , ,

Technically, it’s more like 162 seconds but no matter how much time it is, the above video of Kolona Beach Bar, located in Batsi on the island of Andros in Greece, is a pleasant reminder that the Greeks know how to do beach bars. A small shack forms the epicenter of the beach bar with a covered area next to it for lounging. Beach chairs line up down the beach as space in front of the beach bar is limited. Mere feet from the...

Beach Thursday Pic of the Week – Shipwreck Beach, Zakynthos Island, Greece

Tagged: , , ,

Shipwreck Beach, located on the Greek island of Zakynthos, has to be one of the most photographed beaches in the world. Besides featuring towering white stone cliffs, white sand and blue water typically affiliated with world famous beaches, it includes a little something extra most of the other beaches don’t – its own shipwreck.

With as much coastline that exists in Greece, I’m surprised its beaches aren’t featured more in this column. Maybe that’s partly my fault for not finding the right images.

We might have to try and rectify that going forward and this week is as good as any other to start. To that end, I...

Taking to the Skies Over Agora Beach – Greek Kouzina & Beach Bar

Tagged: , , , ,

I’ve featured Agora Beach – Greek Kouzina (“Cuisine” in English) & Beach Bar on the blog before when I interviewed one of its owners, Pavlos Dimitropolous. As the multiple images included in the article will attest, the views from the beach bar are stunning as well as the beach bar itself. They didn’t really offer a glimpse of the beach that Agora Beach fronts so that’s why I was stoked to see...

Tagged: , , ,

I’m not sure how the ship on the aptly named Shipwreck Beach on Zakynthos Island in Greece ended up abandoned there but the impact on its appeal is undeniable. The rusted remains of the boat, lying amid the white sand beach and just yards away from the clear blue water that transported it to its final resting place, adds to the unique pull of this location. The seclusion of the beach, due to it being surrounded by towering cliffs,...
