Nice beach, let down by abysmal taverna!

This is not the most popular beach on the island but that means that it's not crazy-packed with people and sun loungers. It was windy on the day we went so the sea was a bit rough... read more

This is not the most popular beach on the island but that means that it's not crazy-packed with people and sun loungers. It was windy on the day we went so the sea was a bit rough as it usually is on the northern side of the island in these conditions. The sand is pretty rough, almost shingle, but the... More

Better beaches on the island, but this is unique if you want to see the planes taking off. Taverna is ok and seems to do well priced food but we paid 5euro for two cans of coke so a but overpriced there, we had rented a quad bike and we're just driving around the island. Good for a short stop... More

So the purpose of this review is to say that we came across this beach while looking for 2 others on this side of the island but we had to give up as the roads are not passable even with a quad bike and the walk is to long. Like many others we ended up stopping here fed up with... More

Coarse sand and pebbles. Not sure went you'd pick this when there are other much nicer beaches. Strong waves so I'm not sure exploring the rocks is very safe and you'd need to be a strong swimmer. But my rating primarily relates to the unfriendly staff at the taverna and the smelly toilets. No wifi and loud music. We're off.

Superb wild beach with a nice setting, deep water and airplanes overhead, a unique experience best enjoyed without small kids.

The water is good, but the beach is not as clean as it is supposed to be. People always come to view the planes landing

We found this beach by chance when we went exploring on the quad bike, and have returned many times! A couple of years ago you could hardly hear the planes, even though they were just behind. As they have now extended the runway this has changed, but it's not a bad thing! Lying on the beautiful beach, look up and... More

Nice clean beach, small taverna, two sunbeds with parasol 8 euros for the full day. Music can be a little bit loud, but some people like it others don't. it's difficult to please everyone. On the whole though it was peaceful and quiet the three times we were there.

Pebbly beach, not very pretty but great fun to anticipate planes flying over you (The runway ends at the beach!)

Pebbly and sand beach that is a bit more choppy than most so good for our older boys. Clean clear gorgeous water. If you like plane spotting or even if you just like a bit of an adrenalin rush then you need to come here! The planes fly out over this beach a few times a day and they are... More
