The coastal village of Vari is located 7 km south of Ermoupolis which is surrounded by a quiet bay and counts some 1200 permanent residents, whose main occupation is tourism and agriculture. You will find many taverns in the area where you can enjoy traditional food or have a drink by the seaside.
Swimming is very nice at the wonderful beach, but if you feel like, you may also go to the neighboring beaches of Achladi, Fabrica, Embati and Santorinioi. Within the settlement you may visit the church of Panaghia, dedicated to Virgin Mary, with a nice view to the bay of Vari. The small port of Achladi is very scenic with the small fishing and tourist boats moored within it. The nearby site of Fabrica has also a small port and was named after the old ceramic industry that operated here in the past. On the 15th of August the locals, but also a lot of visitors attend the local religious feast (“panigyri”) in honor of the Assumption of Virgin Mary.
