What to do in Agios Fokas: Activities and facilities

Agios Fokas is an unorganized beach without sunbeds, umbrellas, food/café facilities, etc. So, we recommend you take your umbrella to avoid the danger of sun- or heat stroke. Alternatively, you can visit the beach early in the morning. You can buy water, coffee, and snacks from the beach bar in Krios, which is nearby.

The beach is ideal for relaxing, swimming, and sunbathing. You can also enjoy water sports, but only if you have your equipment, as there are no water sports facilities.
