    Scenes from hollywood film shot there
    It was about 3 years ago when with few friends we visited Antisamos. The village was beautiful, cool climate, and a very cute beach. We could sit for whole hours there, on that soft sand. We ate in a couple of restaurants with good food and good views to the sea. The quality was ok, though service was a bit slow. I have noticed that this is the case in Greece generally, waiters are not that pushed to hurry up. I guess this is a way of life in the Greek islands, part of their charm!

    The beach was beautiful with steep slopes all round. A car park was found on one side of the beach, but no other parking lot. So we had to put up with that. The beach was very clean and we found lots of pebbles all over the beach. The water was pretty blue and clean. We could get some sunbeds also from a taverna there.

    Maybe few people know but in Antisamos some scenes from "Captain Corelli's Mandolin" were filmed, so this alone gives good reason to visit!
