Stenivala is a small fishing harbour 10km from Patitiri. The village is quite old, older than Patitiri, but has kept its traditional character, with not many rooms to let or tavernas.

Like Kalamakia, Stenivala is famous for fresh fish in the tavernas, all owned by fishermen.


There is a twice-daily bus from Patitiri, or you can go by taxi, hired car or bike.

Location of Stenivala

The hospital unit for monk seals is in Stenivala and if you are lucky you might see one there.

Stenivala is becoming a popular yachting destination and the small port is usually full of sailing boats, giving a unique atmosphere. For swimming you can go the near by beaches of Glyfa and Agios Petros within walking distance of 5-10' using the footpaths, as Stenivala beach itself is not so attractive for swimming.

There is also a market there so you can buy ice or any other things you might need especially if you get there by boat.
