This beach looks stunning on arrival (see pic), noticeably the water is a milky or cloudy colour which is the sulphur and collagen in the water. You don't notice these things in the water but the cloudy colour makes it difficult to see the boulders...More

Stunning beach and perfect for a nice swim. The sulphur smell isn't that noticeable and you are quite sheltered once you are down on the beach. Not suitable for children, elderly or disabled people due to the steep stairs.

Beautifull small beach, one of the great atractions of the island. We went snorkeling and it was absolutely lovely. The smell was not that bad as everyone says, it was ignorable after a few minutes.

I don't give five points just because I wish someone had told me how painful it is to walk on pebbles but the water is amazing, it's color is stunning and the sulphur water is weirdly funny, hot and freezing at the same time.

I'm not sure what you mean by "transport rentals" - are you referring to a hire car? While I hired a vehicle for a couple of days, I wasn't staying in this part of the island so my car hire was from elsewhere. I booked a... More
