There is no sand on the beach, the beach area is rather small, but overall water looks crystal blue and view from island is great.

I've been here today, using boat-taxi from Laganas. We arrived here around 9AM and were overwhelmed with the untouched beauty of the beach and sea. That first impression changed when more and more tourists arrived. It became overcrowded and noisy with lots of boats running near your head while you are in the water. All those tourists rental boats became... More

As a turtle fan myself, this place was a personal favorite spot. We took a cruise (Cruisemar Daily Tours) to this turtle shaped island, where we got to see the turtle nests and actually swam on this amazing crystal clear beach for a while. It was a lot of fun.

We were on a glass bottom boat. Saw a turtle, which was nice, however, the way all the boats were pushing in on each other to try and see the turtle was not nice to see. We got some good information about turtles from the crew. Well worth the money and time.

Good to see the turtles up close and good way to see the coast line. Need to be prepared to wait for the turtles to surface but well worth the wait.

Hire a little motor boat to get here as on the organised trips you only get an hour. Lovely water, so clear and snorkelling good. Can get busy when tourist boats come in...but on the whole lovely

This trip was brilliant. The little boat we went on was just the right size. the captain and the tour guide were very friendly and looked after you while on the boat! The beach is a pebble beach but it was a lovely beach!

We made a cruise here with the Kamelia II ship (the cruise was bought from Agrassi`s Mythos Tours center, from the one and only mister Peter ). The tour was wonderful, the ship, modern and swift, the crew (mr Peter`s son among it), friendly and tourist oriented, giving us different explanations about what we saw (the tour included also Keri)....
