Gerakario is composed of three villages, namely Kato Gerakario, Meso Gerakario and Ano Gerakario.
Their names refer to their geographical location, as Kato is the Greek word for lower, Meso means middle and Ano means upper - so their names mean lower, middle and upper village but are referred to collectively as Gerakario.
The villages are located between the tourist resorts of Alykes and Tsilivi and are easily accessible. All the villages have a sleepy, relaxed atmosphere and have been untouched by tourism so remain traditional. Verdant scenery surrounds the area and there are many pretty small and uncrowded beaches in the vicinity.
