Geni. Geni is a small fishing village in the bay, south of Nidri. It is located in a closed bay, surrounded by beautiful green mountains. In the summer hundreds of yachts, fishing boats and sailboats moor here. Geni lies opposite to Nidri, on a green peninsula. Another village here is Vlicho. On the other side of the peninsula lies the island of Skorpios and a little further south, the island Meganisi. On the most northern tip of the peninsula of Geni, stands the church of Agia Kyriaki. Every year on July 7 there is a big festival held here. The church is right opposite of Nidri , on that day, dozens of boats sail from Nidri to bring believers to Agia Kyriaki. Geni itself is quiet and small where less than 100 permanent residents live. However, it lies in a fantastic area where many sailing boats moor. There are no beaches here nevertheless, it is an idyllic area for a great vacation.
