“Tropical scenery”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 26, 2013

I 've visited hundreds of beaches in this country, but this one can easily reach the top-10! The colour of the water and the white sand are creating an image of a tropical paradise! The beach is large enough, so everybody can find its place. Highly recommended for people who want to spend all day on the beach.

“One of the best!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 25, 2013

I have traveled to so many places all over the world but this beach is one of the three I like most!i hope the locals to realize that if they destroy it no one will have not even an excuse to visit this destroyed island ....which is completely destroyed by the habitants of their bad taste ,expensive food and neglected environment....

“Simply Paradise!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2013

One of the best- if not the best beach in Greece!! If you are a fan of golden sand and turquoise water (it seems like if you are in a swimming pool!!) then don't miss Simos Beach!!! You can rent sunbeds and umbrellas or bring your own equipment. There is enough room for everyone! The beach is really biiiiig!

“unbelievable colours”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 26, 2013

The beach is wonderful , the shades of blue and green to die for and an ideal place both for couples and families to enjoy themselves. There are sun beds and you can have a soda, some snack or light food right there brought to you by friendly people. I've been there three times and I'm going next summer for sure.

“Nice beach with wonderful water colours”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2013

This beach is less crowded than Simos, but just as beautiful. A parking is available, and it is possible to rent umbrellas and recliners by the beach.
Three small islands are in front of the beach, and it is possible to swim there to get another view of the waters, but it is about half a mile, so do not attempt this if you are not fit!
