Grikos bay is situated in the southeast. It is approximately 4.5 km from the port in Skala.
The road runs parallel to the coast making walking to and from Skala very beautiful and popular especially for joggers. The bus stops by several times a day leaving you 50 meters from the beach. There are taverns, rent a bike with a cafe, hotels and apartments a kiosk and heaps of sand to lay your towel.
Grikos is a popular settlement during summer because it is quieter than most towns around the island especially during full season (august).
Its beach is the longest of the island with crystal clear waters and tamarisk trees for shade. Tragonissi (“ram island”) populated only by goats and a goat herder faces the bay protecting it from bad weather (except SE winds) and making it perfect for yachts and boats to stop by or moor on the jetty that has a depth of 2 meters.
Most of Grikos has a view of Petra or Kalikatsou (as most locals know it) its a landmark and sits like a monument of Grikos.
