There's a lot of charm and character about this beach. Beautiful calm waters are decorated by rocky coral and fluffy golden sand. Iguana definitely has the feel of being a proper Greek beach. It wasn't overly populated and only 15 minutes drive from the centre...More

Lovely beach and only 9 euros for 2 sunloungers and umbrella for the day. Staff friendly. You do get a few sellers walking around but once you say no they tend to move on and not push.

Family friendly beach in a small bay surrounded by pine forests and cliffs. The downside is all the plastic and garbage along the beach and parking lots. Nice beach cafe with friendly staff and some tables with shade.
