After a long drive we ended up at this little cove and taverna. The little building made of pebbles and shells is nice, the sea is an incredible colour and the taverna a trip down memory lane to when we first came to Greece. Two...More

No sand but such a blue. Calling it turquoise just doesn't say enough. No restaurants were open when we went which I think was a Monday.
