A really beautiful hidden away cove well worth the effort in finding it. No beach just rocks but clear water ideal for swimming and snorkelling plus a nice taverna close by.

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

When we stopped here, I was worried that the water looked too rough for the kids (it was a windy day). Luckily, another tourist was there who was quite helpful about the swim conditions. Without our water shoes, we had to jump in off the...More
