Situated between Plaka and Mikri Vigla, at the south-western side of the island. It consists of a small sequence of bays with a rich golden beach and clear blue waters. The first of these bays, right after the bay of Mikri Vigla, goes by the name of Mikri Parthena. It is the only popular one, due to the weather conditions that make it an ideal spot for water sports such as windsurfing and kite surfing. It is not by chance that, it is considered as one of the best and safest beaches for water sports worldwide.
If you are after a quiet beach experience, avoid Parthena and choose one of the other beautiful, shady bays of Orko that you will meet on your journey to Plaka.
There is a convenience shop and a hotel in the area.
