Taxi to Beach from Cruise Ship Pier?

We will be arriving in Argostoli via cruise ship, and are considering going to the beach for the day. Which beach would be the best via taxi? We were looking at either Makris Gialos Beach or Antisamos beach, but are open to suggestions. How much would a taxi to either beach cost, and is public transportation an option? Thanks!

Taxi to Makris Gialos is no problem, take about 10 mins & cost approx €8-10. Bus is an option but stops running back to Argostoli 6ish. Quite a few people from ships come to Makris

Hi Jacquelyn,

I agree with the above. Lots of people also walk there and taxi back.

Antisamos beach is much more spectacular but is at the other side of the island and would cost 50-55€ each way.

A day on a sandy beach -Makris

A drive through the mountains to see a great pebbly beach where some of Captain Corelli's Masndolin was filmed - Antisamos

Enjoy your brief time on the island

Thanks so much for the quick replies! Which bus # could I take to Makris Gialos, and how close is the bus stop from the pier? Also what is the price? Thanks again!

Hi. The bus stop is just off the main square, not too far from port. Not sure of No as we get the bus from Lassi & cab back after buses have stopped, €1.5 last Sept

I always rent a car on the island and haven't used a bus there for 20 years so no idea of current fares but would be surprised if it was more than 2€

At least your reply didn't disappear into cyberspace again Bob!!!!

Forgot to say bus from Lassi is on 1/2 hr on main road, stop near Makris, last bus 6.30. Those from Argostoli on the hr, think the last one is about 7.00( might be 6.00)
