Perhaps one of the most famous bars is Café del Mar in Sandy Bay.

Another bar worth visiting is the Levels Beach Bar at the Asterias Beach Hotel which opened last summer. This is the perfect spot to kick back with a cocktail and relax as the waves softly lap up against the shore. Located within the grounds of the popular Asterias Beach Hotel at Makronissos Bay, the bar is literally situated right on the beach. Make yourself comfortable among the many cushy seats and low tables for the ultimate chilled holiday vibe.
If you are looking to enjoy some funky chilled music by the sea, look no further. The Beachouse Dome at the Dome Beach Hotel and Resort is a real winner. The popular bar is fairly new and attracts people who are looking for a more quiet spot away from the frantic party scene. If you are looking to kick back with a group of friends or perhaps even with a date, make sure you head over to Beachhouse Dome, which as the name suggests, feels like a beach house. Enjoy some funky jazz tunes mixed with house music and try the local cocktails or perhaps an ice-cold frappe or a mocktail.
