TL;DR

A small village famous for its wonderful beach.

Kato Diminio is a coastal village of 1245 residents, located 2.6km west of Kiato, on the coastline of the Corynthian Gulf. The village is famous for its very beautiful and clean beach, and as such there has been a significant increase in tourist visits as of late. The area's economy is based on agricultural production and tourism. Its seaside pine-tree forest of “Pefkias” (meaning “pine”) in the area is considered an extension of Xylokastro's own Pefkias, and the two were even considered a singular, continuous forest in the past. The cultural Association of Diminio-Neapoli-Kiato “Aggalia-zo” is active in Kato Diminio (The name being a play on words, with “Aggalia” meaning “hug”, “Zo” meaning “to live”, and the whole of the name “Aggaliazo, means “to hug”). The Association is responsible for considerable community service, among other services.
