My favorite beach in the world ..... beautiful scenery, fabulous water, fun little island to swim and dive off of, and a great taverna. The ride can be a little frightening for some but worth the trip.

A marvelous beach with clear water, refreshing but not too cold. Very close to Pigadia. Beach has fresh running water and a small taverna. Cars reach a parking lot very close to the waterfront.

There are sunbeds, umbrellas available and a restaurant The road to the beach is quite difficult...at some points gets so narrow that only a car at a time can pass through. But dont miss it..there are daily cruises from Pigadia if... More

The beach is not so far from Pigadia and displays crystal clear waters and has small pebbles. If you prefer natural shade, like we do, there is a rock on the right side of the beach which gives good shadow from noon. That was our favorite spot!

Stunning drive from Pigadia. The gorge behind the beach has a hiking trail in a river bed which is dry during summer but with many flowers in bloom. There is one taverna at the beach. Organised with sunbeds and umbrellas. Quiet and lovely place. Go for a hike in the mountains and rest at the beach afterwards.

The water is great 22 degrees celsius, at this time (second week of June) a bit cold for a couple of minutes, but once you get in you're fine. It is a very picturesque beach, reminds me of caribbean beaches. I know... More

A small road leads till this amazing beach. Between the cliffs is the blue sea, it is a pebble beach. You will find beach umbrella to rent and a small restaurant where you can eat some good Greek food and drink a glass of retsina or a cold bear.
