We travelled 2 couples. The road is bad, with dust. There is a parking place near the beach. You have to be there till 12am to find a parking spot. At the beach, the best places are the first 3 rows from the sea. When we arrived at about 11:30am, we found available beds only in the back. The staff assured us that we can change the beds when someone will leave. Between 12-13:30, there are people with kids leaving the beach, but when you want to change the beds, the staff comes and don,t let you change (as they said at the beginning) because they say there are other people that want to go there. So they don’t respect what they said when we arrived. They don’t care about you, after you paid the 20€ for 2 beds. Money is in their pocket and you are not a “client” anymore. In the price of 10€/bed you get a card that you cand use to buy a coffe/soda + 1 wather (0,5ml).

The second day at this beach, we refused to take the available beds in the back, and waited to pay only when the beds we want, were available. So it’s better to wait 10-20 min at the bar and get the best beds.

On the first day there were people coming after us, with 30min-1h, and Because we paid the beds, the staff did’t let us move, serving with priority the new commers.

This is our experience.

I hope it will be usefull for new visitors.

Anyway, we think is the best beach, besides the rude stuff.

The worst experience on the whole island. Even though the beach is maybe the most beautiful and unique one on the island the municipality has destroyed it by allowing the bar to be there. They had sunbeds on the whole beach (literally) and they were overcharging them (10€ per person). We had our own umbrella and the personnel of the bar was really rude to us as if it is a private beach. The music was extremely loud and for a particular taste. Moreover while the whole island had really great roads, the road to this beach while really broad was not with asphalt which led to a really dirty car.

The beach is awesome with white little rocks and white sand (from the marble) and clear blue water.
There is no natural shade on the shore and the white marble reflects the sun and makes everything brighter. Also, the entrance in the water goes deeper and deeper quite quickly.
There is a volleyball yard and loud music, so I think this beach is better suited for young people, not families with small and very small children.
In the back, there was an olive orchard that provided good shade, but the sun-beds there were 25 Euro a pair, drinks and food included.

Not a good experience. Avoid and save yourself a day and money. To begin with the last 4 km when driving to the beach are on a terrible dirt road. Free parking sounds promising, but everything changes once you get down to the beach.
Extremely crowded. One sunbed costs 12,50 per person!
It's self service, they don't accept card only cash. The beach isn't anything special. Just crushed marble on a small beach. Water i full och dirt/trash.
It's a tourist trap and for youngsters trying to show off.

Very beautiful bech, the marble is unreal. The road to the beach is not simple it is full of dust and hoals and it is very busy. Go with the jeep or quad and go eary in the morning 8 o’clock because there are no free beds at 11.

The positives: The beach is great, with all the small marble pebbles and the esmerald water. Although it's not big it is a nice beach to spend some relaxing time.
The negatives: You have to pay 10 EUR per sunbed and you get only a small drink or coffe for it (that is equivalent of 3.5 EUR for other beaches). Not too many choices on food (some salads or sandwiches). No taverna or other restaurant. You have to drive for 25-30 min from the closest location on a, basically, dusty road. The road from Thassos village is better than the one from Panagia.

The customer service is horrible. The beach is nice, but very crowded. The staff is hungry for money, they don’t care at all about their customers.
As soon as we arrived on the beach, didn’t even have time to choose our sunbeds before they came and requested to pay immediately. Afterwards, we got hungry. There were no sandwiches left at the bar, and we politely asked to make us one (and pay for it, of course). They did not even look at us. For 20€ per sun-beds set you get one free coffee, overpriced snacks, nothing to eat, cheap quality umbrellas.
Moreover, when we got there, there was a huge oil stain in the water, there was absolutely no chance for us to swim there.
I recommend Porto Vathy, it is 500 meters from the marble beach. It is more spacious, the staff are very friendly, the food is great and the overall atmosphere is so much better.

The beach is mesmerizing and the water is great. However, the staff is rude, there are no WC, they charge 10 euro per sunbed (1 soft drink included in the price) plus 50 cents in order to take a shower (!). Just take your own umbrella and go enjoy the beach.

The beach was quite long away from the main road, accessible through a serpentine road (we might have chosen the wrong approach), but that led us to see marble quarries in action, which was interesting, and some of the views from the road were great. We left the beach through another serpentine road, which wasn't the best idea either since we drove almost 10km off-road before getting back to proper roads. The view from the beach wasn't stunning, and the beach itself was a bit crowded.

50 meter is another beach, with nicer view and free sun beds. Beside the nice water due to the small marble stones, there is nothing nice. The umbrelas are small and the sun goes through them, the heat is high due the sun rays reflecting and you have to pay 20 euros for the sun beds, you have a coffe or coke free in the price. But if you go to the next beach which is really close, you have free sun beds, a lot more space, better shade and it has also the marvel gravel.
