Dafni beach is a really beautifull, long and wide sandy beach, with a splendid view in the gulf of Laganas. Just across the beach, stands the small islet Pelouzo.
This is another place where the turtles Caretta - Careta lay their eggs. The beach of Dafni belongs also in the National Marine Park therefore it is protected.
Here there are o water sports. The small Taverns that operate there, are open only during daytime so that the turtles are not disturbed. The access in the beach of Dafni becomes from the central street of Vasilikos and is considered quiet difficult. You will have to drive 3 kilometres earth-road in order to access the beach. Despite this difficulty, the visitors are very attracted to this beach as its beauty is unique.
