Alaties is one of the smallest and prettiest beaches this end of the island. Like a tiny swimming pool hewn out of the rock and with a small pebbly beach, a visit to this miniature paradise is a must.
To get to Alaties beach from Fiscardo, take the main road towards Argostoli.
Continue through Antipata until you reach Manganos.
As you enter the village you will see a mini-market on your left.
Turn right immediately opposite the mini-market and then right again.
You will meander down a through Agrilias. Continue on this road for around 2.05 k, around here you will come to a crossroads. Turn right for Alaties and continue until you reach the beach.

The name for salt in Greek is ‘alati’ and it is from this, that Alaties takes its name.

For centuries, locals have collected the naturally forming sea salt that collects in the rock pools on the peninsula to the right of the beach.

It is possible to scramble out to the rock pools at the tip of the peninsula. Sturdy shoes are advised, as the rocks resemble a lunar landscape and are quite rough.

Some of the pools have water in and a few are deeper and can be bathed in.  If you take a container, you will also be able to collect some pure and natural sea salt. A perfect edible souvenir!
