Mandriko is situated on the western coast between Kalavarda and Kamiros Scala. It is a small village producing almost 1/3 of all vegetables for the whole island. From the road passing through, you can make out a large number of greenhouses and agricultural fields. Inside this charming village you can enjoy a slower pace of life and the sunset views from here are absolutely breath-taking. A small square with a typical café and the church dedicated to Saint Lucy can be found here. In the evening many of the locals will sit back, sip on their Greek coffee of glass of ouzo, play backgamon and discuss the more important village issues.


Mandriko is a genuinely Greek village. The people are friendly and genuine. It is not on the tourist track but the Church is beautiful and the local beach Kopria excellent.
