Been going to Haraki since 1990 - it's changed but is still a quiet peaceful seaside village with plain and simple accommodation.
Restaurants and bars are all good, all worth visiting - caters for all tastes.
Beach is safe and has pebbles at one end, sand at the other - unfortunately the ducks were not there last year.
Going again in September and can't wait - as has already been said on here - Heaven on Earth.
I had the best time staying at NIKOS BAR - a family taverna - the cleanest rooms and the best cooking. Nikos and maria are wonderful hosts and I will definitely come back.
2007 marks our 9th visit to Haraki - heaven on earth!! The special friends that we have met in the village over the years have a special place in our hearts. We ache, no matter where else in the world we visit, to come back to Haraki to meet up with our friends in the village and also to experience Greek culture which is truly unspoilt
Afandou is undoubtedly one of the best villages in which to stay on the island. It has plenty of shops and bars, and restaurants offering a plethora of Greek, English and European dishes, yet still is a place where people live and work, where you can see a glimpse of the traditional way of life: old people still living in one room houses, men playing backgammon in the kafenio and the whole village taking part in religious festivals.
The village is within walking distance of the beach, a shingle beach but excellent for snorkelling and water sports. It is also one of the few beaches on which you can actually relax without hiring a sun bed, and after a day's relaxation, you can take a short ride on the road train back to the village.
You will be welcomed by people in the village; one of the main reasons why I returned. I'd initially stayed in Faliraki, but discovered Afantou, then returned every year to stay at the Fillipos hotel to enjoy the company of Sam and Georgia and family.
Just came back, great weather locals so nice to you, Stegna star great food and great staff, merc bar a great place to drink chris and George a1. recomend the boat trip from the harbour value for money, you need a car to get about as a steep hill to climb out of village. see peter at merc bar if you want a memory of your nights at the bar... no cash pionts there so you need to trip out of village. we stayed at contastinos, if you are a family ask for room 14 the best appartment i've had... Chris and George u rock and hope to see you soon!
What a place to visit I was 17 when I first came to Afandou now at the tender age of 37 every year one or two months at a time. Now we have an old house in the village. there are some very good bars. if you are near in the summer come and meet me and kaz in the life bar just ask for us at the bar Yani will call us if we are not in. happy holiday.
Stayed in pefkos last sept. Really enjoyed the place, plenty to do lots of bars/restaurants. Going back again this year - can't wait.
Wow, what an amazing resort! We are going back in 2 weeks... we cant get enough of it!
If you believe theres an after life then your right and its a 3 hour flight away (if from UK) What can I say if you've read the other comments posted then your getting the picture.....HEAVEN ON EARTH. Big love going out to Mike & family (Cocktails & Dreams bar) You will want to come back to this place again and again, don,t take my word for it... book it & do it!!! Ps Gwen&Ian sorry about the late call :-)
Haraki is paradise!
