Mavrovouni BeachGíthion’s most popular beach lies two kilometers (1.2 miles) south of the city, just below the village of Mavrovouni. It gets lively in summer but never overcrowded, since the sand stretches for a glorious five kilometers (three miles). Mavrovouni has received a coveted Blue Flag award for its environmental quality: The water shines clean and clear, and endangered loggerhead turtles show their approval by nesting here. Morning is best for swimming and sunbathing; if you're looking to do some windsurfing, the breezes tend to pick up in the afternoon.
