September and October are good months for beach holidays with slightly lower temperatures and this time is not so busy. The holiday season gets underway in May, but the month is still relatively quiet.

There are big celebrations for Orthodox Easter (processions), which is celebrated slightly later than int he UK.

Taxi prices vary e.g. Airport to Lassi will be around 25€ (6km / 15 minute journey).

Apartments are much more usual than hotels. It can get very busy during summer: July and August, so  book in advance. Prices: an apartment for 2 people will be around 50 euros a night. a 5 bedroom apartment, 65 euros a night. Cheap hotels cost 25 euro a night or so.
