4 = Very good. We would go out of our way to swim there again
3 = Good. We would choose it for swimming among other beaches if we were in the area
2 = Average. We could go for swimming again if we happened to be in the area

  • Water Sports
    Lots of water sports choices, but mostly windsurfing.
  • Snorkeling:
    Not very good for snorkeling
  • Notes:
    Vaslliki beach is a well established windsurfing spot. Any given day one can watch the spectacle of hundreds of wind surfers taking advantage of the winds.

    The beach itself is right at the edge of town of Vasiliki. It's not a bad place to swim, but there are a much nicer beaches near Vasiliki. You can take a water taxi Agiofili, or you can drive to Proto Katsiki or Egremni very easily for some of Greece's best beaches.

RATING SCALE

5 = the sea water was some the best for swimming. We would go way out of our way to swim there again
4 = sea water was excellent and inviting for swimming. We would go out of our way to swim there again
3 = very nice and clean sea. We would go swimming there again if we were in the area
2 = nice sea, we had a nice swim but we did not notice anything special about the water
1 = the sea water was not very inviting at the time we visited. We did more sunbathing than swimming
0 = the water did not seem suitable for swimming

Note that these are our simple (and unscientific) observations based on our subjective experience during our visit. We enjoy the water when it is crystal clear, and cool instead of warm. We don' like visible floating particles of any kind or algae settled on the beach.
