Places to See:

  • Vathi Beach. A sheltered bay with clear blue water and a small beach.

  • Panagia Grafiotisa church.
  • Plati island. A small island off the west coast of the region.

Things to Do in Pserimos:

  • Snorkel. The waters around the island are calm and perfect for snorkeling.
  • Kiteboard.
  • Hike. Walk from the Main Harbor to Grafiotisa and enjoy many excellent views. Be certain to bring plenty of water.
  • Swim. The water is calm and perfect for swimming or using your yacht’s water toys.
  • Watch the sunset from the Chapel of Panagia Grafiotissa.

Gastronomy:

Pserimos’ tavernas are open all day, including breakfast time. Breakfast consists of local products such as eggs, dairy, and honey. Meals often include local capers. The cliffs are full of these delicious little flower buds. In fact, the island is also called Kappari (the Greek word for “caper”). For lunch or dinner, visit the family-owned taverna Manòlas. The owner raises his own animals, produces his own cheese and olive oil, and even catches a lot of the seafood he serves.
