Anna's and Takis kitchen in Achata is very good. Delicious food, fast and cordial service and the view is breath taking. Servers make sure all is well and overcome any questions about food or the environment.

This is a good compromise, if you want to reach easily by car a decent beach from your Pigadia hotel, with sunbeds and umbrellas. You'll find people, yes but average crowd.

We loved our day at Achata beach! Wonderful water, really convenient parking and taverna. The beach is small, but it was perfectly quiet at the end of September.

This beach reminds me of a smaller version of Kira Panagia. It is a hidden gem & worth visiting. The taverna is also worth visiting for the friendly service and good food and view.
