There are many beautiful spots to explore, if you go cruising from the Faliraki area, you can see the famous Anthony Quinn Bay, the amazing Ladiko bay which is only some meters far from Anthony Quinn, and one of the most crowded beaches, the Faliraki main beach, which is a very long beach too.

In many Monasteries you will find small market places that sell many things related to the place and books in many languages with information.
