We stayed at Calypso Beach hotel, just about 100 m away from this beach. It has good sand, good private areas if you want that, a long beach, great water, some tavernas close to it., absolutely worth a visit.

The beach is very long and extremely clean. The sea had a perfect temperature and nice waves; our 1,5-year toddler loved it. You can rent a deckchair and umbrella if you like.
