If you want to be close to the heart of town but relaxation’s important to you, the Palm Bay Hotel has got you covered. It’s set on a quiet street, and a short path from the hotel takes you right onto the pale sands of Plakia Beach and into the clear waters of the Aegean Sea. Take a 10-minute walk in the opposite direction and you’ll be in the centre of Pefkos where you’ll find a main street lined with restaurants, shops and bars.
Days at the hotel revolve around the outdoor pool. It’s a curvy number with an adjoining section that’s separated off for little ones. The water’s edged by a team of sun loungers and parasols, and there’s a poolside snack bar, which looks out onto the beach and offers drinks and light bites. You’ll also find a restaurant that serves Greek and local food if you want to have your main meals at the hotel.
