Giving it all : Wild coves & beaches in northern Ikaria


…..

super splash ikaria«Oh, what mortal place have I reached this time? Are they cruel and merciless savages, or god-fearing people, generous to strangers? The noise in my ears sounded like girls shouting, nymphs who haunt the high mountain passes, tributary streams, and grassy meadows. Am I near creatures with human speech? Let me look, and see.»
(The Odyssey)

There you are, I’m done with my secret Ikarian coves. Some say I shouldn’t have given them out, that I should have kept the secret etc. I thought so myself years ago. But I have changed my mind. Though these places are marked in the latest map as «swimming spots» ≅ the fact is that they are hardly accessible to the average summer visitor O_o So I doubt if you meet anybody there but an occasional cow or goat. Nevertheless, be respectful and careful and let others enjoy them too. Check out a few related old entries of our blogs if you wish. We have been going there since 2007 and as long as we can, we will still go! Who knows, some day a shipwrecked Odysseus may land at our feet.

In Eleni's blog : Αφιερωμένο στην Αθηνά και σε κανέναν άλλον! In my blog: Εξερευνώντας την ακτογραμμή, ξαφνικά ανακαλύψαμε μια θερμοπηγή! - As we were exploring the coastline, all of a sudden we discovered a warm spring in the sea! In my blog : 'Ημαστε στη παραλίτσα της Αγίας Παρασκευής (προστάτιδος της υγείας των οφθαλμών) στη βορειοανατολική Ικαρία. In my blog : καλό καλοκαίρι σε όλους και όλες! In my blog : Back to land, near the sea, inside the sea, hidden paths, hidden places. In my blog : Unexpected discoveries inside an unbelievably beautiful secret cove and mountain gorge in Ikaria.

HAVE A GREAT WILD SUMMER!

This is all for the time being and I think it’s more than enough. If you open the links to the pictures and you are patient, you may find more! As for the real places, I am sorry that I can’t take you by the hand and take you there. You will have to find them on your own. I am aware that this dry list is lacking personal touch. You can get a bit of that in older entries of our blogs, for example at :
