Not a sandy beach - water shoes are recommended - even then I found it rough on my feet. There is Tavern at the bottom. Boats do launch out of here as well

The black sand is actually grit but it isn’t too rough on your feet. The sand meets the sea on a small slope so kids must be watched, although it levels out. Altogether it is a nice beach

Black sand but not as stony as Kamari Beach and much quieter. Have to pay for sunbeds but discounted if you purchase food/drink from the many restaurants'
