Overview

Golden beach sand, turquoise water, and perfect scenery? Come to Fikiahda beach! As popular as the adjacent Kolona beach is, it can sometimes get overcrowded. Hence tourists and locals prefer the quiet lull of Fykiada. Boat owners might sometimes find Kolona bay packed with boats and need a tranquil anchorage to rest for the night.  Fykiada provides this quiet bay for them, gives shelter from dangerous winds, and gives reliable anchorage.

Navigation

Tourists can access Fykiada by sea from Mericha port. Water taxis shuttle daily on the Kolona beach, which is right next to Fykiada beach. Fykiada beach lies approximately 9 km north of Merikhas. On getting to Apokrousis bay, you continue left on the road, which will lead you to Fykiada. The dirt path is narrow and undulating. Hence most tourists prefer to use the water ferry. From Chora, it takes 20 minutes. Go southwest and turn right at the junction to Merikhas. Follow the dirt road till you get to Apokrousis and continue on the left till you get to Fykiada.

Where to Anchor

You can anchor in 3-5m of sand and weed on Fykiadha bay. The seabed is sandy and filled with seaweed.  It has a good holding as soon as the anchor goes through the sand. Boats that tie up in the bay have to be careful because the anchor may drift because of the gusts that come down from the mountain.
