With the clearest waters of the Ionian Sea and the long sandy beach, Kontogialos seems to complete the village of Pelekas, adding more to its beauty. It is no surprise that another name of Kontogialos beach is Pelekas Beach.

The beach of Kontogialos, with its vast sandy beach and crystal clear waters, was loved by hippies and is still loved by young and old alike.

With the cleanest of the Ionian Sea and the huge sandy beach, Kontogialos, also known as Pelekas Beach, seems to complete the village of Pelekas, like a part or continuation of it.

Going down the steep hill one is struck by its wonderful colours and often calm waters while its more than 30 metres of golden, sandy beach unfolds in front of one.

The landscape of abundant olive groves and pine covered hills, which frame Kontogialos beach, make it most deserving of its place on the island’s favorite beaches list.
