Molivos is nice small town situated on the slope of cape hill with big fortress on its top. Here you can find everything that need summer tourists: tavernas, souvenir shops, travel offices, etc.
But - from the other side - it is now on the edge of becoming the unbearable resort: with noizze, international plastic cuisine, tourist crowd, hotels everywhere etc. Already now many shops in the local market streets are selling only awful t-shirts with Beckham face (sorry player) or terrible figures in the shape of enlarged men's instrument.
The rescue for Molivos is lack of nice beach. That one which is the centre of the town is very narrow and not so sandy. And overcrowded as well. Perhaps this obstacle will stop the waves of tourist industry.
Undouptedly the most charming part of Molivos is its harbour with local tavernas and nice views. The atmosphere of the past you can also find during the walking to the castle from the coastal area. It's very pleasent to go right and next left and climb a bit between old houses. And the last remark: Molivos castle is close (2007) untill the end of works inside the courtyard (probably 2009).
