Moraitika is separated from Messonghi by the river that runs out to the sea.  It is a larger, more developed resort that can accommodate more than 7000 guests during the height of the holiday season.  There are an abundance of restaurants serving Greek and international dishes, many supermarkets and a large bakery.  There is also a post office, pharmacies and if needed, medical centres.  The long sandy beach has much to offer from morning until late at night

The Roman Baths are a small but interesting archaeological feature in the middle of the village.  The Old Village of Moraitika is above the main resort road at the northerly end.  It has a pretty church and a couple of nice tavernas.

Accommodation ranges from simple rooms for independent travellers to large hotels that cater for families such as the Messonghi Beach Hotel.
