The beach is about a 15 minute walk. As T&C said head out along the harbour pass the Naval museum and follow the coast along to the left. There is a nice tree shaded street to follow all the way up to Neo Chora beach. I believe twice a week Saturdays for sure this road is packed with the local market. that will give you a good chance to do some shopping on the way.

Here is a view of the street you will end up walking along.

There are good beaches a little further along the west coast probably about 4 km a bit far for a walk but the local buses go regularly.

Thanks Albastron. When we are on vacation I do all the cooking, well breakfast and lunch. That onion was from the market and still had dirt on it. I do love the fresh vegetables in Greece.
