Beautiful Beach

Very pretty beach, very busy! Make sure you get there early to get a good spot. The restaurant at the beach looks lovely, we just stopped to get some ice cream :)

The whole beach is covered in umbrellas and sun beds. The beach wasn't anything special. 2 umbrellas was €20 and we had to buy expensive drinks from a rude waitress. They had some water activities that might be something, but we didn't stay long enough to try.

well when you are going to visit mykonos you know that everything every service every drink\food is inexplicable expensive.In this case the only "low cost" service was the sunbeds with 10 euros cost per sunbed.

Lovely clean beach and perfect for a walk. On the beach there is a good restaurant to stop off for a coffee, lunch or dinner.

I had read rave reviews of this beach, which is why we ventured out there. Being an island known for it's beaches, I expected more. You cannot access it by water taxi, which is not what I had read. You need to take the bus from the center, which only ran every 2 hours, on a weekend. The bus terminal... More

The service was wonderful as well. The facilities were immaculate and luxurious. They have a cute and reasonably priced gift shop. The entire group had a great time relaxing... More

Nice beach, particularly if you are staying there. If you are travelling to get there then I would give it a miss as its not as a nice as Ornos or Paraga.
