Megalos Mourtias Beach and the Megalo Mourtia Taverna
One word of caution when you begin to carve out your place on the beach is that you must be aware that when a large ferry passes by, even one a couple kilometers or more out into the sea, eventually some very large waves that were generated by the ship's wake make their way to shore. When that happens, if you have set your towel, chair or lie-low too close to the water's edge you are definitely going to get wet! It's actually quite comical to watch this happen to unsuspecting newcomers, as it always results in a scramble to higher ground.

The Megalo Mourtia Taverna
The Megalo Mourtia Taverna (entrance from the beach is shown to your left) is our favorite taverna on the beach. It is owned and operated by a wonderful couple, Yiannis & Ria, who are assisted by their children Kelly and Dimitris, as well as various other family members.
We first met Yiannis & Ria (pictured to your right along with Kelly) back in
From our experience, eating (or drinking ) at this establishment is like sitting down with good friends. The combination of excellent food and solid service makes this taverna one that you will want to return to whenever you visit the beach at Megalos Mourtias. When you do visit, please do give our regards to Yiannis & Ria, and tell them Jeff and Andrea sent you!
