After enjoying an exclusive swim in the waters where pirates once sailed, you will return to the mainland. Followed by a walk in the alleys of the old town in Kyparissia will be a stop at the Old Watermill, the only one of the ten authentic mills still in use and therefore protected by the Greek government. Quench your thirst or satisfy your appetite in the traditional coffee-shop of the mill.
