If you like raw nature with a touch of privacy, then this is probably for you. But be prepared to go under the sun and see some driftwood washed by the sea. The sand is fine, but not the finest I've seen, and I rather thought that the pictures were more beautiful than the actual.

Why not five stars? The road leading there is dreadful and poorly maintained. Drive carefully. You can be certainly others don't. The biggest problem, however, is a lack of care by the community for the beach. This year it seems that driftwood and weeds were not cleaned up after the winter storms. But ... all this said, do go.

I love this beach. I keep going every summer. An amazing beach that I enjoy spending the whole day there. You have to bring with you your umbrella, water, food etc because the beach doesn't have these facilities but i really don't care because this means no loud music and you can totally relax. I love this sandy beach.It's not... More

you have to see yourself, its nature pure, no bars no trash no noise only the sea and the hot sand dunes. (camping permitted its a nature resort!) Clean see and even your privacy like 10 greek families and 30 tourists maximum.

Lovely beach with finer sand than elsewhere in the region. The water is beautifully clear and shallow until quite far out. It's not very crowded.

An amazingly beautiful beach...bring an umbrella though as there is not much shade around. The landscape is breathtaking and the water depth was fun for the kids--seemed like we were in a cove made just for us!

In early May, what might be too cold on the beach is mitigated by the scooped out bay called, Voidokilia (literally ox belly) protected by the wind these private and shallow bay provides window clear waters for its visitors intrepid enough to follow the small, hand-made signs to its off-load site--the bay is over the hill, seaside from the Gialova...
