Further from Pefkochori and closer to Paliouri Village there are 4-5 beach bars one close to each other, in a great location with amazing shallow tirquaz water. Those beach bars are more crowded / cosmopolitan, so you should try to be there before 11:00 to find free sunbeds. Be aware that the charge for sunbeds and drinks may vary and probably be higher in this area. From all the above we prefer Navagos beach bar.
