Opposite Agios Sostis is an island called Marathonisi which is better known as Turtle Island due to its shape (very similar to a turtle!), and also the fact that Loggerhead turtles come here to nest their eggs around the island. It is an excellent place for a day trip out of Agios Sostis where you can sample some different beaches and even catch a glimpse of a few turtles pottering around if you’re lucky!
If you’re a foodie then this place is great to sample some traditioanl greek cuisine, with tavernas lining the waterfront in amongst the main bars that are in the town. It’s a great place to eat, drink and enjoy the sun go down with beautiful views.
Agios Sostis isn’t the place to come if you’re a backpacker who likes to party hard, the nearby resort of Laganas might be a better option for you, but if you’re looking for a bit of down time on the road, some peace and quiet in stunning surroundings, then this is a fantastic option.
