Gennadi is a very friendly village, which is a quiet place to relax and enjoy island life. There are many quality restaurants to choose from. Try Segios, where Poppy will introduce you to Greek cuisine and tell you all the places to visit. For quality fast food during the day, try the 'Chicken Boys', Tony and Chris, for fish and chips,curries, Sunday roasts and breakfasts. Antica bar, Kostas and Attractive are just a few bars that make you feel very welcome. The beach is regarded as one of the best on the island and has 3 tavernas which will serve you freshly caught fish dishes. You'll be sad to leave when your holiday is over.
