By sharp contrast to the coastal walk, the Village Walk weaves you through the citrus and olive groves that separate the Beach from Bitez Village. These narrow paths are dappled with shade and lead you on a tranquil journey away from the main crush of tourists.
If you’re not into aimless wandering, you can head to the ruins of the Gara Church.
This 2,000 year old Greek Church has an interior floor with an impressive display of dolphin mosaics. You can’t actually get inside, as it’s locked up and in dire need of some restoration, but you can still see the mosaics through the doors and windows. Read More

The Nibbler becomes the Fisherman
I frequently swim around the Blog-o-Sphere, following bait from pool to pool. I like to observe the fisherman from a distance, and watch them cast their lines in an attempt to lure me in. If the bait doesn’t interest me, I’ll swim out of one pool and lurk in another.
