Beneath the Castle of Chimara is Livadi and then to the north lies Giali, Zypaea, Gialiskari at Drymades, Palassa, Dralaios and Grammata. At various points on the beaches of Chimara the water is cold because of the underground springs that exist. A few dozen meters away from these points, however, the water temperature rises once more to normal levels. During the summer months small boats offer rides to the beaches near Spilia.
