There are a lot of cafe bars along side it with umbrellas and chairs you can use without having to pay a lot just a drink will do.

My memories from visiting Asprovalta

When I was a child my father took us almost every year to Asprovalta for a small holiday.

Most of the time that would be two days, the weekends and we usually repeat the two days two or three times throughout the summer.

We couldn't afford renting a room so we were sleeping in the car.

Our car was a small rural truck with a tent. It looked like the one in the photo.( I couldn't find nowhere one with a tent to show you).

We usually set off early in the morning so we arrived there at 8 o'clock.

As soon as we arrived we went immediately to the sea and started swimming till noon.

My dad had taught me and my sister to swim since we were very little so we really enjoyed swimming.

We didn't want to get out of the water not even to eat. Mother always begged us to get out and have something to eat.

Most of the times we got sunburns as well because we didn't want to get out of the sea even to put sunblock.

In the afternoon we usually took a nap when we were very little or played with a ball with dad till the three hours after lunch passed so we could go to the sea again.

After swimming and playing in the sea till the sun was set we usually went to eat something in the town.

We took walks and enjoyed the night view of Asprovalta, the shops, the people, just everything.

We sometimes went to the open cinema as well.

Finally we slept at about 11 or 12 in the night.

In the second day of our short holidays the first thing we did was to go to the church.

My family is very religious and we learnt to love going to the church as long as we could remember.

Asprovalta has a very big and beautiful church with a yard full of flowers.

When we were very little we enjoyed playing in it a lot during the mass.

After the mass we ate a little something for breakfast and again off to the sea again.

After spending the whole day in the sea we had to return home by 6 in the evening.

We couldn't stop winning to our parents in the way home asking them when we would go again.

And thats how my children years have past.

Give these books and dvds a look - I think they are worthy of your time if you are going to visit Greece some day.

Some videos of Asprovalta - I found on youtube. Enjoy!

Some photos I found online from Asprovalta - I hope you will like them as I do. Unfortunately when I was a child we haven't taken any pictures so I don't have a

      I have been to Greece... but only in books and on TV. I love reading about Greece, the beaches looks awesome. If ever I can get a chance to visit Greece, I would love to be in Santorini.
