Syros Beaches - Galissas

Katia in Galissas, Greece

Katia says

At Galissas on the west coast of the island, you will find a lovely sandy beach in a perfect U shape, in a pretty protected harbour ringed with tamarisk trees. This beach is 8 km from the capital Ermoupolis, and 8.5 km from the airport. From Galissas you can take a day trip out with a boat, and explore the fine, sandy, untouched beaches on the west coast of Syros.

In Galissas, dine in style with the wonderful food at Iliovasilema Sunset Seafood Taverna. This dining experience is like taking a summer holiday within your holiday. This taverna has been voted by travellers as the best in Galissas. A setting amongst the long grasses of the sandy beach dunes, soft romantic candlelight, great service, great company and great food, can you ask for more?
