We did not like the beach. We did not like the sea. I prayed we had a car, so we moved to another beach at once.

This was our favourite beach - quiet, secluded and good for snorkelling. There are no beds, umbrellas or cantina so bring your own supplies and while away the day swimming and reading - sitting on the pebbly beach or under the shady pine trees -...More

Sat on the shingle beach and soaked up thick engine oil into our trunks and bikini. No matter what the setting or location the oil spoiled the visit.

We went in this beach by car and then by boat (rent it at Vathi!) and then again by car. It's an enchanting pebble beach, with crystal clear water, turquoise colors, a small nudist beach (walk on the path over the rocks). A paradise.

Only discovered the first part of the beach, pebbly and clear water - with lots of fishing boats at the time we visited which was early evening. Sun stayed there till late and people were still swimming. No facilities and some street parking. Not crowded....More

This beach does not have beach bars or Sun bed hire. It is quiet with fantastic snorkeling and swimming. The water is very clear and warm. We love it but be aware that on parts of it nudity is allowed. We always keep our costumes...More
