Think this beach is the one signposted 'Panteleimon beach' ??? It was our favourite as it wasn't as busy as Voulisma beach. There is no snackbar but there are supermarkets nearby to stock up for your visit. Sunbeds and a brolly 7euros. Plenty of space. Beautiful sea, beach pebbly but lovely once you're in the water. Good for snorkelling -... More

Beach clean and in very good condition. A little unstable for those with walking difficulties as the sand slips away under your feet.

The water here is just so beautiful. The water was perfect for a swim and we just din't want to get out. Unfortunately we could only spend one afternoon here.

The sea is simply beautiful! However, if you want to get into to the water, you will need to step across stones for the first few meters.

Golden sand, turquoise waters, perfect scenery, showers, sun beds and umbrellas... what more should you ask for? I just love the colour of the waters in this beach! Definitely worth swimming there!

We went to voulisma beach in Istro, which was a sandy beach to our surprise. Also the beach is serviced, so you can relax at your sun bed and will bring you your coffee.

Very beautiful sea colour, still warm water in late October, nice sandy beach. A bit of litter in places I'd say. We've only met some 10-15 people there in low season.

Just got back from Crete on holiday. So happy we found this beach! Recommended. Clean, children friendly, quiet, close to bars and restaurants.
