Simos: A dream beach with turquoise waters
The beach of Simos is actually a large strip of white sand in which you can swim and think you are part of a painting. It is a unique beauty exotic landscape in the Mediterranean and for this reason, it has stood out all over the world. It is located on the south side of Elafonissos and only 4 km from the settlement of the island. Across it is Kythera.
The beach of Simos also has in some parts pink sand which is a rare phenomenon all over the world. This, of course, is due to the elements found in the rich underwater area of the beach, the red corals and the thousands of colorful shells. As you can see, the scene being created is dreamy.
Everything you want to know
Simos beach can be reached by car but there are also small boat routes from the old port of Elafonissos. Part of it is organized but on such a large beach that you can put your umbrella wherever you want. Even in front of the wave without any problem at all. It is a typical example of a beach that even on the 15th of August you will not feel that there is overcrowding.
Simos is the beach worth staying there until the evening. The experience of the starry sky is incomparable to what you have experienced so far.
If you’re a camping fan then you can enjoy this beach. The evening swimming experience is also something you will never forget.
