This was a wonderful find! Shade to park cars under, great taverna and service, good toilets. Beautiful aspect really breezy so comfortable to sit in. Loungers easy to get and not too busy apart from an hour when a boat brings people in for a quick visit. Water can be a bit choppy but great fun. Service on offer at... More

We had hired a scooter for several days as we like to get around a bit and decided to go over to the other side of the island for a change ....after all when the island is only approx 12 x 6 kilometres it's hardly a long journey although sometimes the roads can be a bit hairy. The beach is... More

I really like this beach. It's a long sandy beach with lots of room for spreading out. There is also a nice taverna. Situated on the north of the island so you will need a car to access it.

I did not like it at all. The beach is wild and it is not flat. It has sudden drop near the sea. It was very warm and it does not have natural shade, so you have to rent sun beds (there were not so many and they were all occupied) or sit in the bar. It was windy and... More

The beach to go to if you want to just relax, not crowded and so peaceful. There is a boat that turns up nearly every day and the day trippers just come come lunch, but it's not a problem. The sea is crystal clear and great for snorkelling. There are two tavernas which serve really good food, and you can... More

What a ride down to this beach but oh was it worth it, boats pull into here and do an hour stop. Taverna also here so you can have a spot of lunch or a nice cool drink.

Easy to get to if you hire transport, great beach, very good taverna. Watch out for the naturists! Not on the public bus route, buds stop 18.

We discovered this beach by chance while we explored the north side of the island by car, because there are no buses going there. It is a nice sandy beach, not too many people, sunbeds and sunshades (no charge in the afternoon? Or in September?) and a beach bar. Although before you go there you should check the forecast because... More

We've just come back from this beach and we think its the best so far. It was easy to reach, by car, all flat. It was a wide sandy bay with sun beds and parasols (8 euro) when we went the water was still and calm. Whilst there was quite a few tourists, it was lovely and peaceful. Best beach... More
