Great beach to drive straight down to. The water is deeper, all facilities available. There has been a bar, stools and a little seating area set up. It’s a little “make shift” but look past that. This is a stony beach, as most of them...More

Love this beach. Drive right to it, sun beds and ‘brellas and cafe/ beach bar. Pebbly, but sandy at one end. Sheltered, pretty and amazing to snorkel. Well worth a visit!

awesome beach to visit on the island. This is the most popular beach on the island. must visit it at least once. it does get crowed in peak season and there is a obvious reason. It is easily accessible by scooter or by car.

Just the place for a swim in typically clean, clear, Greek water. You can feel your body relax swimming or just floating in this lovely spot. Big enough for a large crowd. 10 euro for umbrella and 2 beds. There is a canteen offering drinks...More

9 minutes driving from the capital (Vathi), you will find a not huge but gorgeous beach. Quiet, ideal for families, you can pick between either a sunbed for 10€ or staying under one of the olive trees at the back. The kiosk offers some snacks...More

A busy beach mainly frequented by locals, but all the better for that. Serviced with sun beds etc and a small cafe & bar. No toilets or restrooms however. Access from Vathi (3kms away) can be a little fraught.
