The centre of Himara is divided in 4 different beaches. Spile is the main beach in front of the centre of Himara, about 400 meters long with thick sand, being a public beach it is very populated from early in the mornings. Next is Sfagio beach, a small stretch of sand with high cliffs where youngsters use it to play and jump. Next is Marachi beach, a small pebble beach that was mostly visited by local people but now it’s much frequented by everyone! Continuing south in front of us is revealed the beach of Prinos a long beach with thick sand, along the beach are located a lot of hotels, apartments and restaurants. Next after taking a right turn from the main road is the beach of Potami (River in Greek), the second largest in the centre of the town. The water here is quite cold because of the underwater springs that flow all year long.
Finally, Himara's finest stretch of sand is hiding a bit southern, at the other side of the gulf of Argileo. Filikuri beach is located between Potami and Llamana and it is surrounded by high cliffs. Because of its remote location it offers a lot of privacy and its frequented by those who want no crowds. The beach can be reached by boat or kayak. Take enough food and water with you if you plan to spend a few hours in Filikuri.
Being the centre of the region the town of Himara is full of apartments, hotels, restaurants and cafes all over the stretch of the beach, from the port until Potami beach on the other side. Near the port it’s the water sports centre with a lot of activities and on the small dock in front of Manolo visitors can hire boat rides to some popular destinations.
All the beaches of Himara can be accessed by foot from the center of the town. Filikuri on the other side need a bit of walking or by renting a canoe or a kayak and going south.
