The food was of low quality, not tasty and the reastaurant premises weren't good. Also the toilets were dirty.

Situated at the 'back' of the island where the buses cannot go, this beach is a lovely escape. Beautiful clear water, lovely taverna with good food - what more would any beach-lover want?

The beach at Megalos Aselinos looks stunning and as no public transport it's a lot quieter than beaches on the south side. Unlike most beaches on the north of the island you can reach by normal car rather than jeep and plenty of parking. The beach is more shingle than sand and it shelves a lot more steeply than those...

Need a car to get here but well worth it. The beach is quiet lots of umberellas and beds and good for families. Clear shallow waters shingle/ sandy beach. Taverna offering food and drinks with waitress service. Good for drinks but when busy a little chaotic for food. No boat trips docking for the day, locals using the beach would... More

Definitely a favourite! The beach remains beautiful even when the weather's not optimal. Only problem is that public transport doesn't access it so you have to take a taxi or boat if you don't have a car to get there.

We were lucky and we had a jeep for 2 weeks, so it was very easy to get to this beach and no walking in the heat. There are toilets (including a bucket of water system) and taverna and shower - so no problems with facilities. The beach is a bit pebbly but I bought my aqua sea shoes, so... More

Amazing place such a beautiful beach away from everything. Easy to find and ample parking.There is aTaverna on the beach which offer a wide range of amazing food. Just be aware that at lunch times the tourist boats come in and it can get a little busy.

The beach is easily accessible with good parking. A toilet an tavern with all the usual you expect on the beach. The sand is nice with some shingle near the waters edge. Plenty of sunbeds as this was not the busiest of beaches so you can arrive late an nab one. The sea is my only concern for families as... More

If you want to escape some of the crowds and hustle and bustle of the beaches on the south coast then try this one for a beautiful and wilder experience. It has an old taverna when you need a drink.
