Spent most of the day there and it's a top quality beach. Nice sand (gets very hot so bring your flip flops) and lovely clear water. Little bit of surf the day we were there but nothing to stop you swimming. Just enough breeze to...More

Beach and water are unbeatable. Clean, white sand. Few people, great drink and good service directly delivered to the beach.

We travelled here by public transport from Kissamos and had a short and easy journey. It was well worth the effort as the beach was lovely and there were plenty of tavernas to choose from for a meal. We had a lovely lunch and sunbathed...More

Gorgeous beach and very very clean. Loads of places to park, and sun beds which were pretty reasonable they ranged from €6-€10 for two beds and a brolly. A few places to eat, and they will deliver to your sun bed but we weren't that...More

The local name for the main beach is as in title. Very nice beach with dunes at the left end. At the right end nudist area. Very good place for spending a beach day. Recommend definitely.

We actually went to see the ancient city of Falassarna, but it was rather hard to find (not well marked, a long and dusty road). The beach itself was rather okay, but I'd say not worth a long drive. The same goes for the ancient...More

What are the facilities like at the beach? Are there many options for food/snacks? Is it as windy as people say? Do they have lifeguards?

Response from Lekkopijana | Reviewed this property |
Yes, there are some facilities like food market or a bar, but not as many as on a typical beach. It is windy compared to other places, but it doesn't always result in high waves. Lifeguards are at the 'main', center part of... More
