Cape Liakas extends to south of the island, finishing in white limestone cliffs that plunge down into the Ionian sea in kaleidoscopic shades of blue from the palest turquoise to the deepest cobalt. Atop, the land is a fertile landscape of lemon trees and olive groves, with occasional church bell towers punctuating the skyline and the pine clad slopes of Mount Aenos creating the backdrop.
All the villas in Spartia have use of Cape Liakis or #AmadakissBeach, this sand-stone beach has complimentary sunbeds and shade for our villa clients, it’s a perfect spot with a ladder into the clear blue waters for swimming or snorkeling.
The small white washed village of Spartia is just one of the villages that interrupt a lush landscape, remaining relatively unassuming and off the beaten track. In the centre of the village there are a handful of tavernas in a small square and a couple of mini markets. A network of paths and lanes lace the surrounding countryside making for interesting walking, especially in early and late spring when wild flowers colour the scenery.
Approximately 2kms downhill from the village is the fishing jetty, with two tavernas nearby and a little sandy beach on either side. It’s a nice spot for a swim with shallow water and is ideal for children.

Spartia beach is hidden in the middle of high rocks, and is easy to access by car. Best time of the day is in the afternoon when sun is setting down and colours are breath taking. Water is normally fresher than in other beaches due to streams. It’s wonderful to do snorkeling, fish watching and explore cavities. Do not expect wide spaces or sunchairs and umbrellas.
