Beach bliss

This was our favourite Beach bar. Welcoming staff, comfy chairs and clean loos. Cooln hammocks on the beach and they know a great masseur ( who I named the big man) who they don't mind massaging you on there beach beds.

This year we were actually staying at Villa Manzara in Torba, but remembering how attentive the staff were we decided our large party should be at Carpe Diem. We went the day before for a drink and lunch and the guys actually remembered... More

Carpe Diem Restaurant is located by the beach at Gümbet. Lovely atmosphere by the sea :) The service and food was excellent. The waiter even offered coffee and fruits on the house.
