I visited this beach at the end of August 2016. It wasn't crowded at all. Water is amazing, crystal turquoise colour. There is a place to eat nearby, whose stuff goes along the beach so one can order something to eat or dring on the beach. Also, there were some sunbeds and umbrellas,which are rather expensive. One umbrella and two... More

Porto katsiki for me is a little piece of heaven on earth. Perfect place where you are directly connected with the sea and the beautiful surrounding nature. It's a virgin beach. And for me it is one of the best beaches i have ever seen

Beware, the roads leading to the beach are really not for the faint hearted. Good driving skills at least. Road from Vasiliki is only for hardcore offroad SUVs. There is a municipal free parking. Don't be mislead by the guys that show you a different way into the paid parkings (respectively 5 and 3 euros per day for cars between... More

If you plan on visiting you must do it around noon. Until then it is going to be in the shade because of the rocky side. The beach is all made of pebbles so it is rather hard on the feet. Also it gets very crowded around 1 pm. The water is magical though and worth going just for that.... More

This beach is wonderful. The huge cliffs and the super clear water make this beach really exceptionally beautiful. It is a few drawbacks though. First of all, in main season, it is very crowded and very difficult to find a parking place (5 euro, hopefully your car does not get damaged). Second, this is not a sandy beach, but consists...

This beach is really amazing, the incredible blue color of the sea and the cliffs makes the wow effect. But, the beach is not sandy but pebble. This makes getting in the water a little harder but it's worthy. Don't miss it. What makes the beach very different from others is also that here you can find people(staff) walking on... More

This is a fantastic and popular beach but it gets crowded so you need to get there early to find somewhere to park and to mark out your territory on the beach. Take an umbrella and a cool box -- you'l need both. Don't forget to put some cold drinks in your cool box but if you do there are... More

Best not in a cruise because you get only 15' to swim but you will not be allowed to the beach. Rent a car, go there at 8.00 A.M. (the beach will be empty) and you get to have parking. Great sunrise! Water to dream of! We stayed about 4 hours.

Nice beach,a little too far for going with motor (from Nidri with 75ccm rented motor) at least for me,but very nice crystal blue water, and small rocks... I've been there for about 2 hrs and I think it's more than enough...

Simply its the best beach I've ever been to. The water is very very clear with a magnificent blue/green colour (which resembles tropical beaches) and it doesnt have sand, only small white stones so you dont get your feet dirty. Another reason why I liked it so much is that it doesnt have beach bars to distort the landscape or... More
