I was very excited to find out about this beach; The coastline forms a few small caves some meters away from the sea, which you can use as natural umbrellas. The white rocky formations are a contrast to the dark brown sand and the overall scenery is pleasant to the eye. Despite these rocky formations the sand is very rock-free... More

We went here because our guide book recommended it as a beautiful beach. However, the beach view is spoilt by the refinery to the left if that worries you. The restaurants serve great fish dishes especially squid. Peaceful place to swim six people on beach whereas in Protarus it was heaving.

Food is great at the restaurant and the terraced area overlooking the beach is marvellous. The only down side is the power station to its left...however, face the other way and you'd never know it was there!

There is a lovely restaurant there called Kalymnos Restaurant where the serve the most wonderful fish. Service is good, other diners are friendly. Outside, at the rear of the restaurant, there are lovely lawns and it is right on the sea. Would recommend.

This is a nice little beach to spend a couple of hours at with good restaurants. The downside is that there is an industrial site one side of it.

Very poor rocky area. Great views of industry. Not worth the effort. Nothing of any beauty at all. Words fail me as to why anybody would want to come here.

Was expecting a huge golden sandy beach but just found several restaurants next to each other which you have to walk through to get to a shallow beach with odd colour sand and great views of the power station. Nothing seemed to be open this time of year so didn't spend much time there.
