Agios Spyridon is one of the beaches of Paleokastritsa
. Note that there is one more Agios Spyridon beach but it is on the northeast coast of the island close to Acharavi
and both are very different places.
Agios Spyridon is the main and largest beach of Paleokastritsa, located under the famous monastery. It lies in a crescent shaped bay protected from wind and waves, surrounded by high cliffs from both sides. It is long but narrow and gets really crowded because it has less sunbeds and much free space than the other beaches of the resort. Agios Spyridon has fine soft sand but in the water there are small pebbles. The sea is crystal clear, with saturated light and dark hues typical for the seashore around Paleokastritsa.
A small part of the beach has sunbeds offered by a beach taverna but the rest area is free for those who want to use their own parasols.
