“At the end right”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2013

A very nice beach, nice relatively shallow lagoon, sandy beach with a small stand of trees next to the restaurant. For the from the sun not yet coloured northern european not very attractive, since there is not much shade from the sun. Very nice restaurant with good food and nice staff.

“My Favourite Beach ever”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 11, 2012

It takes a hour on the bus, or you can go on a moped, its worth it, there is a vast expanse of beach, and to the left is a tiny cove the water is warm, the sand is soft there are a couple of tavernas but not a lot else.

“Fabulous beach”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 31, 2012

Probably someone already wrote it, but this is a beach where Luc Besson shot parts of his Big Blue movie. It is wonderful, long, wide, with clear, blue still warm water perfect for swimming. When the weather is good, you can see Santorini from there. There is also a taverna on the beach with good Greek specialties. I didn’t see lots of sunbeds and umbrellas, but it was off season.

Definitely worth to take time and drive south (approx. 30 min from Hora) to spend time there, great beach, we’ve loved it.
