After the beach of Alyko lies the beach of Pyrgaki. The area combines the beauty of the beach with the natural beauty of inland. It is located approximately 20km away from the capital. One has to reach Alyko and turn left (there are signs).
Access to the beach is via earth road of good condition for about 1km after Alyko. What impresses visitors is the sandhills and the cedar trees found in abundance. In the area one can find few taverns and quite a few recently built hotels/rooms most of which have a lovely view of the beach. In general Pyrgaki beach is hardly ever crowded.
