The most popular period in Kontogialos is the spring to autumn period with temperatures often reaching the low 30s during these months. However, the resort never gets too busy or overcrowded with tourists. The temperatures drop to around the mid-teens in the winter months and while there will still be a few things to do in the off-season, Kontogialos doesn’t see the same levels of excitement as summer, especially since it is mainly a beach resort.
On the beach itself, you will find plenty of sunbeds and umbrellas to hire which are located at the south end of the beach in front of the large hotel complex and towards the centre near the tavernas. The beautiful, calm waters in this resort are perfect for swimming and since the seabed remains shallow for quite a way out, you don’t have to worry about your little ones splashing around in the water. The town itself is also a great place to visit with its selection of small cafes and restaurants.
Because of its popularity with tourists, Kontogialos/Pelekas beach actually has quite a good selection of accommodation options to choose from.
