Long Sandy Beach
Can be Windy
The beach of Nea Cryssi Akti, called “Tserdakia” by locals, is a long sandy beach located about 26 km south-east of Parikia and loved for windsurfing. In the early days of August, when the winds are very strong in the area and around the Aegean Sea, it organizes the Professional Windsurfing World Cup, an event which was established in 1990; the best surfers from around the world come here to sail in a difficult sea with strong winds. The beach is well organized and offers facilities for sports and for those who want to relax in the sun.
