The local beach, Spiridon, is c. 8-900 metres along the road, about 2 minutes by car, c. 20-30 minutes' walk [downhil to the beach, quite steep returning]. Many more beaches are within just 5-10 minutes drive. Pelekito is equidistant from the livelier resorts of Acharavi and Kassiopi (about 5-6 km).
This area is very popular with walkers and naturalists. Inland is mountainous and every vertiginous corner offers fantastic views of Albania and the N.E. coast. The renowned Lake Antinioti can be seen from the villa's veranda.
There is one golf course on the island, located roughly in the middle, c. 20 kilometres from Perithia.
