Nissi Beach beach

"The famous of the famous!". The place that everyone talks about! The place to be! This beach is universally popular with the lovers of the  "big" life and with those that want to experience "a touch of paradise". The Island or Nisi in greek, is one of the most famous destinations in the world.

This beach was named Nisi because in the west part of it there's a little island, which is linked to the beach through sandy paths. Its disposition was caused due to the low depth of the water and the movement of the sea currents.
