Within just 2km from the village of Horefto the magical beach of Agia Saranta with its white pebbles, fine sand and rocky shoreline, offers wonderful shade for the afternoon hours in the summer. The beach has clear green and turquoise waters, and as with most of the beaches in the Aegean. There is an unusual tall rock named ‘the Monk’ as it resembles a hunched up Monk, that is a perfect platform to dive into the crystal clear waters below.

The beach takes it name from the pretty little church of Saint Saranda (the Forty Saints) located above the beach. There are umbrellas and sunbeds available and at the far end of the beach there is a beach bar. The village offers a few rented room if you are looking to stay there.

With easy access by car along the narrow tarmac road, during the summer months the beach has many visitors.

As with all the Aegean beaches, when the North wind blows, or the infamous ‘Meltemi’ from the Aegean, the sea can be rough and the currents strong so particular care is needed.
