"Psarou" is a peaceful rural area, surrounded by the typical flora that can be found on the Ionian islands (olive groves, vineyards, citrus fruits, greenery with flowers, crops with vegetables, etc.). The area remains unspoiled since there is no large tourist industry around. The locals are involved in farming and agriculture the winter months and in tourism in the summer months.
Psarou beach has been awarded with the Blue flag over the last 10 consecutive years, thanks to its clean waters. It is very safe for all ages and ideal for swimming and snorkeling.
Micro-climate: In the summer, the waters are very calm until the evening hours(usually 3pm.), then a pleasant, moderate cool breeze blows from the North-West. The very early and late hours might be humid.
