The Sea

Ionian summer stories

Greece without the sea and the sun is not Greece. Ioannina combines sea and sun with other experiences that are not found in the rest of the country, that's why Ioannina is a unique destination.

Just one hour away from Ioannina, through the brand new Egnatia Odos Highway, there is one of the best coasts of the Mediterranean Sea, a coast that offers numerous leisure and relaxation options, the Ionian Coast.

Countless beaches on a 60km coastline, here are some of them: Kalamitsi, Mytikas, Monolithi, Canali, Kastrosikia, Ligia, Vrachos, Loutsa, Ammoudia, Agia Kyriaki, Lichnos, Parga, Valtos, Sarakiniko.

There you can find small, isolated, almost hidden bays, where you will be alone, if you are lucky, with the sun, the sand and the sea. You may enjoy a huge variety of water sports for every taste and pocket like surfing. Not a surfer? No problem! Lounge on the sandy beach, visit a noisy beach bar with loud music, suntanned bodies dancing and long drinks and cocktails from early morning until several hours after sundown. Choose what you want to do first!

What would a Greek summer be without the picturesque seaside taverns with Mediterranean cuisine? Come out of the sea, sit on the table in your bathing suit and order fresh fish, one salad and ouzo. After that lick an ice cream cone or three. So simple, so beautiful, so Greece!
