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.
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.

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

Found by car only. No buses. Mainly locals but also is visited by boat trip. Good snorkelling, but watch the weather. If windy can be 2 metre high waves !
