The village itself is located on a small isthmus, which means that it is tucked slightly out of the way.

The main attraction to these two villages is that spending time here makes it easy to visit Korfos Beach, which is known for its kitesurfing due to the wind conditions, and Ornos Beach, which is know for being great for those who want to soak up the sun. However, there are other things to do in this village besides spend time at the beach, such as wandering the streets and looking at the shops and also eating a delicious, traditional Greek meal in one of the restaurants or cafes. This is also a great place to enjoy the scenery. This village also has some peaceful resorts, which means that you can enjoy the beaches, scenery, and solitude on a regular basis.
