Things to do in Pelekas
If you’re fortunate enough to be in Pelekas in August, you’ve hit town during festival season, when festivities include traditional music, dancing and tons of gorgeous grilled souvlaki.
But for something a little different, take a hike up to the precipitous headland that divided Pelekas from neighbouring Glyfada Beach and you might just see cliff jumpers hurling themselves off the 40 foot high rocks into the waves below ̶ please don’t try this for yourself though!
Pelekas beach also boats its own natural beauty spa ̶ you’ll find a cove packed with natural clay mud just south of the main beach and it’s said to have restorative and detoxifying properties. It’s a local custom to lather your entire body in this cooling clay and wander around for a while before taking a swim to wash it all off, so throw caution to the wind and join in.
Last but not least, if you want to watch a wonderful sunset, climb up the small hill known as the Kaiser’s Throne and sip a cold beer as you watch the sun sink slowly over the horizon as velvety dusk envelops the entire landscape.
