We were a bit surprised that you have to pay even on foot as there is no parking:3 Euros each was quite a lot for a couple of hours.The setting is amazing but there were hardly any loungers left in the sun and there is no actual beach. But it was an experience! Oh,and there is no cafe or bar-only... More

I really can not understand why they ask money for that place. Yes it looks nice from the photos, not a bad view if you are there, but that's all. We arrived around 7 pm and still entrance fee for a 20 minutes visit... Can not imagine how crowded it in summer. A concentrate place to lie your towels, max.... More

This is a private swimming spot located at the site of an old tuna fishing port - it is not a beach. There is very limited space for sun bathers to you need to get there early if you want shade - in July all the shade was taken by 10am. The entry price of 3.50 euro gets you a... More

This is a historic site that is overlooked by ancient lookout towers and striking rock formations. The shallow and clear waters are lined with rocks and a boat ramp. You have to pay to go there for a look/swim and share the concrete with a crowd. If you like a sand beach there are better places close by but this... More

Not worth paying to see. Hopelessly overcrowded. And there's no beach and nowhere to sit down except on a concrete platform.

Supposed to be a museum but we couldn't find one! Just some fishing gear stacked up. It's very scenic but you're basically paying for the privilege of being on a film set - Oceans 12.

Nice landscape and charm but it's like a public swiming pool full of people bathing and getting sun on the rocks.

You pay an entry fee and, if you don't get there too late, you might be able to get a confy chair in the shade (or wherever you prefer). Access is not easy if you have a buggy. Nice clear water.

A charge of 3 Euro per person for entry is now charged. This entitles you to walk down the road to the slipway in front of the buildings. You can sun and sea bathe, but all the old buildings are now private holiday lets with no access and there is no information on the history or usages. There are some... More
