Vlychada is the last beach in the row of Perissa and Perivolos before Akrotiri. The pumice stone hills just behind the beach keep it calm and quite. Chances are (except maby from August) that Vlychada will be quiet and so crowded like Perivolos and Perissa. Before you reach the beach, you pass the small harbour, which is full with small traditional boats. Do not stay surprised if you come across as you are walking to the beach to one of the many ducks or the swams that leave there under the wing of the fishermans. It is a perfect spot for those wishing to avoid the big crows. Meals and snacks can be found at a nearby cafeteria on a boat.
