- Seitan Limani boasts magical views and pristine water. It’s a bit of a hike to get there, and you need to walk down quite a few steps to go for a swim, so it may be best for people without children. Please note it’s a remote location with no shops, so don’t forget to take water, snacks and other essentials with you.
