A "hidden" oasis back from Stafylos beach accessed through a dirt path between the sparse vegetation. Organized with sun loungers from a small beach bar without many bells and loud music with crystal clear waters. The beachis fine gravel without sand

This is a two part beach. There is a section with sun lounges and umbrellas and a small bar with friendly people. The second section, beyond a natural barrier of rocks there is the nudist section that has the same wonderful water, but no amenities...More
