A beautiful harbour is the centre of this pretty fishing village. A natural horse shaped bay is lined with small shops, local tavernas and a couple of bars, creating a laid back atmosphere. Around from the bay is lovely Paradise Beach, small with clear water it is popular for snorkelling. A few streets set back from the village harbour are fields, olive groves and two commanding hillsides that give the village protection from the winds. Quiet and moving at a slower pace than the bigger villages; this is a quintessential Greek village, with fishing boats, a kiosk in the village square and churches painted in the Ionian pastel colours.View villas in Agia Efimia
