I love LB. Everyone is so friendly and many of the same people return year after year, occupying the same position on the beach! Unfortunately it has lost a little of its magic this year, with the retiral of Yani - he was such a character! There was also a problem on the refreshment front this year when the taverna... More

Good beach but can get very busy, best to hire a quad on this island and visit all the beaches as they are all superb.

Hire a 4x4 if you want to avoid the tough trek to get to the beach, but once there its total relaxation. Very friendly people on the beach its like being part of a private club without the dress code. Yes you need to get there early to get a front row bed, early being before 11. You can also... More

We were there in Aug this year. Really nice beach but overcrowded. Go there early in the morning or later in the afternoon if you want a sunbed. Also noticed dogs there, one of them was there every day. The bar holder was nice and made jokes. The price was 8€ for the beds. Unfortunately textiles were present...

Good mix of nationalities and types of people. Nice clean beach and a good bar with friendly staff. However, I do not like dogs being allowed onto the beach (a couple of dogs where there for just short whiles).
