This beach is located in the beautiful, natural bay of fishing village Lakka, in the north of Paxos. Its protected location ensures calm waters and make this a great beach for families with small children. In fact, parents could watch their little ones from the comfort of the beach bar: Harami Taverna.
What is Harami Beach like?
Harami Beach is made up of little grey pebbles that slowly descend into a bay of blues and greens. The calm waters here invite people of all ages to play in the Ionian Sea. Yachts bob on the horizon, seagulls float through the air, and soft music plays through the speakers of the nearby taverna. This might just be Greece at its best, and it’s a fantastic introduction to Paxos.
For families with children, it is highly recommended to visit Harami Beach. This can easily be combined with a stroll through charming Lakka. There are some interesting boutiques and shops here, like George Apergis’s shop of handmade jewelry, or Taste and Flavor of Olive. The harbour area is a wonderful place to have a coffee in the morning or a cocktail at night.
Facilities and Taverna
Harami Beach Bar Taverna is the only business on this short stretch of beach. But it makes the beach experience so much better thanks to their food, drinks, and facilities. In fact, you can easily spend the day here, alternating dips in the Ionian Sea with tanning, having a drink and a tasty Greek lunch. The taverna places sunbeds on the beach and rents out parasols. Make sure to come early to grab your own sunbed.
Clients of the beach bar can also connect to the WiFi. Although this isn’t a strong signal, it should be sufficient for those who want to check their emails or share a picture on Instagram. You could even bring your laptop to the beach bar and enjoy a bit of the digital nomad lifestyle. This might just be the best office of your life, so far.
How to get to Harami Beach?
Harami Beach is in Lakka, the northernmost town of Paxos. From Glyfada Beach Villas & Restaurant, take the mainroad to Lakka and park anywhere in town. You can easily walk to this beach from the small and cozy town centre. Follow the path to the left of the harbour. You will first pass a tiny beach, called Kanoni, before arriving at the longer Harami Beach.
If you prefer to drive here directly, you can set your phone or GPS nav-sat to ‘Amfitriti Hotel’. Park nearby and walk past the hotel to get to the beach and the taverna.
When on Harami Beach, why not take advantage of your location and visit the Lakka lighthouse? Walk from the beach past the taverna and follow the road to your right. It’s a 6-minute walk to get there. Alternatively, you can walk to the other side of the peninsula and visit Plani beach. It’s 9 minutes on foot but you can drive and park there, too.
