We preferred the beaches to the eastern side of town (adjacent to the port) because they it lovely soft sand that was in a quieter end of town. Great tavernas and bars there too, awesome vista of the bay too.

Rent a lounger - always one free - for a few euros and sit close to the share of a tree as well as by the waves. Great for kids, perfect sandcastle building sand! Decent restaurant and patisserie nearby

It’s an okey beach - quite long. Sundbeds. Clear water. But it isn’t the most dreamy one - some hotels are pretty close. (Visit the island ios if u want really nice beaches!).
